College Admission Seminar
In light of the pandemic, many colleges are choosing to become test optional which means standardized testing in no longer a requirement for admission. This makes the application essay carry more weight in the admission process. I have 5 of the top college admission counselors in the area to speak about writing the essay. This is a fantastic opportunity for students to work with admissions counselors on their college applications even if these colleges are not on their list. One on one assistance will be offered as I answer questions and help with their applications. What a huge relief it will be to seniors to start and possibly finish their college applications prior to the start of the school year! The seminar is $85 for three days of collaboration and one on one assistance from admissions counselors. Read More.
