Everyone’s leadership road is a little different; tell us what you are doing now and how you got there.
She created a system to not only work full-time as an entrepreneur, but helping others afford college.
What are some of the misconceptions students have about getting scholarships? Many students say “I will never get that scholarship”. What would you tell them?
Jocelyn talks about making sure to wait for the rejection to come rather than rejecting oneself outright.
We have three groups in our listener base: students who are going to be in pharmacy school, graduate students in pharmacy school, and parents with children who will be going to school. Starting with the parents, how can they tell their kids to fill out scholarship applications at 16?
She gives great details about these three larger categories.
Have you had any professional (nursing, medical, pharmacy) school scholarship applicants? What is your expertise in these types of scholarships?
Jocelyn tells us specifically how these types of scholarships might be a little different.
Where does scholarships start with a high school student and can you tell me a little about scholarship season?
She outlines the best time to start looking for scholarships.
Is there any advantages an on-campus student could have by talking to people in getting scholarships and do you have any negotiation tips?
Jocelyn outlines some key tactics on campus and off.
What is the best way to contact you?
Jocelyn has a lot of free stuff, like the free essay writing guide, free webinar and the three-step writing method that makes essay writing so much less painful and more creative.
