Are you looking to reduce anxiety over organizing your college application process? How about tackling the applications themselves and their essays, or communicating your “demonstrated interest” – whether by phone, email or interview settings? Collegiate’s college counselors take care during the junior and senior years to prepare you well for these tasks, including the summer assignment of a completed application draft, but this “hit the ground running” seminar offers you the structure and time on task for an intensive jump-start. Primary topics include: researching and organizing applications, completing online applications, crafting essays, communication 101 (including interviews), essay feedback and fine-tuning lists.
You’ll walk away with a personalized notebook for organization, tasks underway or under your belt and great advice. And, your college counselors are uniquely poised to offer that advice – together, they have more than 60 years of experience in college counseling and admission, and they’ve evaluated more than 30,000 applications as admission officers in highly selective institutions from across the country, including Gettysburg College, Johns Hopkins University, New York University, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and University of Vermont.
This course will be presented by the Collegiate College Counseling staff: Kim Ball, Erin Breese, Liz Jackson, Andrew Reich and Brian Leipheimer.
