You will be grouped into small admissions committees to review 3 candidates with a college admissions officer. As a group, you review all aspects of the application and determine how the candidates compare to the university profile in order to decide who should be admitted, denied, and waitlisted.

5:45-6:00pm Check-in, Moiso Pavilion
6:00-6:20pm Introduction

7:30-8:00pm College Fair, Moiso Pavilion

OVERVIEW:

  • All participants should read the 3 sample college admissions applications prior to the event.
  • The sample applications will be discussed in small groups led by a college admissions officer. As a group, you will decide which students will be accepted, denied, or deferred.
You will learn the following:
  • What colleges look for in an applicant
  • What colleges value academically and how a student spends their free time
  • How difficult it is to choose between applicants
  • How students can evaluate their own strengths, skills, and qualities they bring to the process and how to convey them on their college application
