Life After High School: College Admissions 101

An Introduction to College Admissions

A lot of the information students hear from friends about getting into college is just plain wrong. So with the help of our Collegewise counselors who worked in admissions, we created this seminar to answer the question, “What are colleges really looking for?” Are grades, test scores, and activities all equally important? What other factors are considered during the admissions process? And is it true that having a connection to someone can get you in?

We’ll talk about all of those things and take you behind the scenes of a college admissions office to show you exactly how they evaluate and select students. Students come away from this seminar feeling even more confident about the college planning choices they're making, though we should warn you that you might also come away from this seminar feeling smugly superior to all those friends who gave you bad information in the first place.
