Introduction to Great Test Prep
Though many schools adopted test optional policies for the latest admissions cycle, standardized testing remains one of the best ways to know whether you should consider a school to be a match, reach or safety. Although standardized test scores aren’t everything, they can be an important component of any college application. In this 45-minute workshop, we will review our proven approach to testing, how standardized test preparation can demonstrate overall academic ability, and strategies for a competitive advantage.
Introduction to Athletic Recruitment
If you’re looking for information on how to be recruited by an Ivy League athletics program or that of another elite academic institution, this workshop is a great place to start. In this 45-minute workshop, we will review sports resume development, profile building, highlight reels, networking with coaches, and more.
How to Choose and Apply to Summer Programs
Having three months off of school affords the perfect opportunity for students to explore interests they may not have the opportunity to learn about in school. Some students take advantage of this time to get a summer job to save money for college, while others seek research or internship opportunities. In this 30-minute workshop, we will review the importance of summer opportunities, which ones are worth your time, and how to apply.
Personal Essay Writing Techniques
It’s never too early to polish your essay writing techniques and the personal essay is a great place to start. Every year, over one million students apply to college. Beyond grades, extracurriculars, and test scores, a stellar personal essay gives your admission officer a chance to hear your unique voice and tell your story. In this 45-minute workshop, we will review our top techniques for writing an outstanding personal statement.
