If Not Early, Then What? A Guide to Maximizing Admissions Outcomes

by Carol Barash, PhD, on Dec 12, 2014 10:50:00 AM

This was a crazy fall for college admissions! When the numbers are official, they will show a significant increase in the number of students who applied Early Decision and Early Action, as well as the number of colleges each student applied to early. FLOTUS even added her energy to this movement, leading a walk with students to mail their applications last week, still well ahead of the official deadlines for most colleges.

Colleges for their part were including merit aid along with their early admissions offers in record numbers. Clearly there is a frenzy afoot. Just in case you (or your students or children) didn’t get into your top choice schools early, I’ll be leading a webinar on Wednesday, December 17, from 7 - 8pm EST to walk students through the key steps they can take over the next month to optimize their admission and scholarship outcomes, including:

  • Making a list and checking it twice: We’ll discuss how to take a balanced view of your college list and show you how to make it better, rather than longer.
  • Improve your research: How well do you really know the colleges you are applying to? You’ll learn how to show you’re a solid fit for your target and reach choices.
  • Reveal your commitments: Is your application a blur of activities? At the end of the webinar, you will be able to focus your essays and interviews on what’s most important.
