What Colleges Really Look For
The college admissions process has become fiercely competitive, with both parents and students facing significant anxiety. In this session we will discuss how a student’s distinct background will be assessed by an admissions committee, dialogue regarding such issues as AP courses, SAT and ACT scores, Early Decision vs. Early Action admission, what extra-curricular activities are most impressive, athletic considerations, and some basic information about financial aid. We will also explore the presentation of an appealing resume and application.
