College Planning Virtual Workshops

How We Assess Applications - Wednesday, July 14, 4:00 pm ET
For this case study session, you will be an admissions officer at a selective university - and review applications for a spot at a fictional school. Along the way, you will learn about a holistic review of a college application, how applicants stand out, and what parts of the application are most important for admission.

College Essay Workshop - Wednesday, August 4, 4:00 pm ET
One of the most-talked about pieces of a college application is the essay. This workshop will review why the essay is important, choosing a topic, and tips and tricks from admissions counselors to conquer this part of the application.

Mastering The College Search Process - Wednesday, August 11, 8:00 pm ET
How do I search for a college? What questions should I be asking? When do I visit? If these questions sound like some of yours, this is a great session to kick off (or continue!) your college search process.
