College Admissions 101
Saturday, Dec. 7 at noon
You've figured out where you want to apply for college, but now what? Join us at the Clemmons Branch Library as Laura from Collegewise gives us 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.
Need some service hours? Come by at 11 a.m. for our Service Saturday program and then stay for our college prep program.
