Until a few days ago I didn’t know who or what Neill Seltzer or Noodle Pros was. They both caught my eye when I read what Neill had to say about college admissions.

In addition to having experts ready to teach you about any subject that interests you, also available is practically any kind of sport, club or activity you can imagine sitting ready for you to jump in and get involved. There is a wide array of men and women your age to hang out with, possibly date or even marry one day and no parents to approve or disapprove of the crowd or individual you choose to befriend.
