Case Studies and College Program for Junior Families

The evening starts with a senior panel – Friends who often have the best advice for students embarking upon the college process. In addition, many college and university representatives will help us conduct the case studies and college program for both juniors and their parents. You will get to sit in the driver’s seat as you decide which applicants get admitted, wait-listed, and denied with the help of admissions veterans who will shed light on how actual admissions decisions are made. The evening will conclude with break out sessions focused on a variety of topics such as: highly selective admissions, engineering/STEM programs, athletics in the admissions process, women’s colleges, liberal arts colleges, art schools, etc. This will be a fun-filled and information-packed night. Dinner will be served at 5pm.
