The goal is to empower students and families with information that can be used to plan for college admissions and to manage the stress associated with this process.  This seminar aims to demystify the admissions process by going behind the Admissions Office’s closed doors and addressing how schools select applicants for admission.

Some of the topics that will be covered include:

·        Explaining “who gets accepted,” and “why they got in” or “did not get in”

·        How do I choose extracurricular activities?

·        What’s more important: grades or extracurricular activities?

·        Why isn’t a 4.0+ GPA and 2400 SAT score a guarantee of admission to schools?

·        How do I manage stress – what do colleges want to see in the application?

·        What is a good college essay topic? What should I expect in an interview?
