Via Zoom. This program is recommended for parents and their high school teens.
This Zoom presentation will help families understand how the lingering effects from the pandemic have changed the college admissions landscape for Juniors, Sophomores and Freshmen.
Each college admissions cycle is increasingly competitive. Many schools had record numbers of applicants. Record high numbers of applications result in record low acceptance rates which is what most popular colleges and universities experienced this past admissions cycle.
Learn about current college admissions trends, the importance of researching and visiting colleges to find schools that are a good fit for your child, a timeline and other action steps that can be taken to make this second half of the school year productive and help reduce the stress around the college admissions process. Examine the holistic admissions review process, what admissions officers consider important when they review applicants, and how students can position themselves to develop a compelling narrative to increase their chances for admission.
Hear about the importance of community service, how it can provide an opportunity for personal growth and a way to showcase a student’s character. Admissions officers place great emphasis on a student’s character and how the student has been able to give back and help others.
The presentation will be led by Ron Feuchs and Jackie Tepper, partners at Stand Out For College, LLC.
