Visit to Mumbai and London

MUMBAI 14-16 OCT 2019

I will be visiting high schools in Mumbai to speak with students, parents and teachers about the artistic review process for theater, film and dramatic writing programs. I will visit Oberoi International School, Bombay International School, and Hill Spring International School. This will be my third visit to Mumbai over the last few years. Given past and current interest from Indian students and families, I plan to make at least annual trips to India going forward.

LONDON 18-22 OCT 2019

I plan to visit the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, the London Academy of Music & Dramatic Art, The Royal Central School of Speech & Drama, and the Guildhall School of Music & Drama to learn more about their theater programs.

How to Find Trustworthy College Admissions Advice

In the wake of the college admissions scandal, how can students and parents figure out what’s credible?
The New York Times, 19 MAR 2019

The article discusses a “pioneering type of Facebook group: Instead of having free access to the thoughts of random strangers, this group requires payment to join, but the information comes from experts. The group, called G&F Parents: College Admissions and Affordability, charges $29.99 a month for parents to ask experts questions about college admissions and financial aid.”

I am one of the experts! — Chris
