What is Application Nation?

In short, the most powerful college counseling community in the country! In 2018, Sara Harberson started Application Nation, a suite of private Facebook Groups created especially for parents navigating the college admissions process with their children. During Sara's time as a dean of admissions at a top college and an associate dean of admissions at an Ivy League university, she has trained the very best admissions officers. With her Application Nation groups, it is Sara's goal to train parents like you to think like an admissions officer and take charge of your child's future.

If you've been wondering who to turn to with all of your immediate college admissions questions, Sara's Application Nation groups may be just what you're looking for! Whether your questions are big, small, specific, broad, or anything in between, you can ask them directly in the group and Sara will personally respond with her professional college admissions advice. Plus, you'll receive bonus insights and support from parents who are in the thick of it too!
