If you’re new to the college application scene, or want some help getting the best match for your college bound student, join us for a unique behind-the-scenes presentation that will help demystify the college admissions process. The Parent Connection and Campus Bound of Hingham, MA have teamed up again to offer families a unique Mock Admissions Committee opportunity.
This program will be held on Tuesday, May 1st at 7:00pm in Alden School Room 104 and is open to families with sophomores and juniors in high school. This interactive presentation will provide several critical take-aways in the college admissions process. Participants will gain first-hand experience reviewing and interpreting student applications as well as how and why admissions committees decide who is accepted, deferred or denied. In addition, participants will obtain a unique understanding about how different colleges value and weigh each part of the application, including the essay, transcript, recommendations, personal characteristics, and activities.
Experienced college counselors will guide participants through the presentation, each a former college admissions staff member from schools such as Holy Cross, Suffolk, Bridgewater State, Bryant, Curry, Fairfield and Union. Check out the counselors’ bios at http://campusbound.com/our-team/
In this interactive presentation, participants will review three sample college applications. Afterwards, former admissions counselors will discuss how a variety of colleges would evaluate each candidate based on the schools’ differing priorities and goals. It’s a compelling way to gain an in-depth understanding of how admissions committees evaluate student applications and how a particular school’s current standards, criteria and priorities weigh into their decision. Following the presentation there will be an lengthy Q and A session.
Join us on Tuesday, May 1st at 7:00pm. Tickets for this program are $10 and can be purchased by clicking below or at the door. Students and parents are encouraged to attend. We hope to see you there!
