College Admissions 101

Join us on Wednesday, March 13 at 6:00 PM PDT to learn more about the many benefits of a college education and to gain a clearer understanding of grades, test scores, activities, and everything else colleges evaluate.

About this Event

Join Collegewise Counselor, Fayelah Johnson, who will guide you through every step of the college admissions journey.

From making the most of your high school experience to researching colleges and ultimately crafting your best application, all while keeping you stress-free through the process!

What you'll learn:
  • What admissions officers value in applications
  • How to build a successful academic foundation in high school
  • How to supercharge the summer and winter breaks
  • The value of extracurricular activities
  • How to unlock the power of a personal narrative for college essays

Attendees will get straight answers about what college admissions committees really look for and how they ultimately decide who gets in. Students and families may be pleasantly surprised to learn that kids don’t have to be trilingual, opera-singing rocket scientists to get into college today.
