An interview with the founder of Talk College To Me…
WELCOME TO THE FAMILY
Talk College To Me is a home for parents who want to help their children become the best version of themselves. My name is Marisa Meddin, and I’m here to help you navigate the college admissions process in a way that is FUN and EASY.
I believe that attending the right college leads to a successful life. And I’m here to teach you how to help your child find the right college or university, and have the best chances of getting accepted to that school…even if you have absolutely NO idea where to begin the process!
I’m so glad you’re here.
ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Marisa landed a marketing internship at PepsiCo the summer between her junior year and senior year of college, and accepted a full-time job with PepsiCo in New York City upon graduation. Throughout her career, Marisa volunteered with non-profits, helping high school students navigate the college application process and spent a great deal of time talking with students about future career opportunities.
After years managing marketing campaigns for some of the largest brands in the world, Marisa realized that she was most fulfilled during her time volunteering with students. So…she quit her corporate job to start Talk College To Me, where she absolutely loves helping wonderful families learn how to navigate the college admissions process.
Marisa absolutely loved her four years in college and enjoys exploring new college campuses any chance she gets. Her greatest passion is helping parents like you gain clarity and confidence in navigating the college admissions process, and she can’t wait to work with you!
WHAT PARENTS ARE SAYING…
I was nervous that I wouldn’t know how to help my daughter through the college process. She is an average student, average athlete, and not super active…but we wanted her to have as good of a shot at getting into college as the straight A, student council president, jock students.
Since finishing the course, I now feel much more confident that I can help my daughter, and I am better equipped to help her navigate the whole process. The course covers everything: what to do during each year of high school, applications, testing, college visits, scholarships and financial aid. I learned of things she can do over the summer to help boost her activity list, and helpful information on writing her essays. I would recommend this course to any parent to help them stay organized and focused, and learn how to help their child with the college process. Thank you, Marisa!Rachel O.
Worth every penny!!! I think you have done a fantastic job with this college prep program!!! I just love it!!!!!Sandra H.
Prior to taking Marisa’s 7 Day College Admissions Crash Course for parents, I was worried about missing deadlines and scholarship opportunities, and nervous because I had no idea how to help my son complete his college applications. After finishing the course, I sat down with my Sophomore son. Together, we drew up an action plan, with time frames. We talked about how he could incorporate his extracurricular activities into his essays, and how to take each to the next level.
The course covers everything you need to know and more, delivered in daily lessons. It’s all right there for you, including useful files, links and notes. I now feel extremely confident that I have all the tools and knowledge we need to navigate the college admissions process and help our son get into the college of his dreams.Marie A.
I didn’t even know where to start the college admissions process. I wasn’t sure what steps to take while my son was in high school, when he should study for the SAT or ACT or how to manage the whole process.
After taking this course, I now feel much more confident, and I know the exact plan I need to follow to help my child through the college process. I have already talked to my son about extracurricular activities that he can get involved in, and which courses he should register for throughout his remaining time in high school. And my son has even created a resume by following an example in the course (which he has has already used to apply for a summer internship). This is an incredibly helpful course for parents who are nervous about the whole application process.Tatyana B.
