Calming the Nerves: Everything You Need to Know About the College Admissions Process

Thu, May 5, 2016 @ 7:00 pm



Applying to college can be stressful, and getting into college can be complicated and competitive. Having an open family discussion about college issues so that stress doesn’t get in the way of the parent-child relationship is key.

Featuring the wise counsel of more than 50 deans of admission, journalist Christine Van DeVelde co-authored “College Admission from Application to Acceptance Step by Step” with Robin Mamlet, the former dean of admission to Stanford University.

Join us to hear clear, comprehensive and compassionate advice regarding the college application process. The focus of the presentation will be on finding a college that’s the right fit and much more. Join us and learn: the role of extracurricular activities; what’s more important: high grades or tough courses; the role testing plays; the best candidates for early admission; advice for athletes; how wait lists work; financial aid information; and the most recent changes to the college application process. Don’t miss this definitive event for sophomores, juniors and seniors and their families.
