College Admissions 101

Join us on Thursday, February 29 at 6:00 PM EST as college counselor, Lizzie Leonard, provides families like yours with a clear and comprehensive overview of what to expect as you embark on the journey of college applications.

About this Event

We’ll discuss grades, test scores, activities, and everything else colleges evaluate. Attendees will get straight answers about what college admissions committees really look for and how they ultimately decide who gets in.  


Join us to...

  • Go through the process from start to finish
  • Hear strategic advice on building strong applications with a focus on academics, extracurriculars, and essays
  • Learn the truth about what admissions officers value from applicants

We think kids and parents will be pleasantly surprised to learn that kids don’t have to be trilingual, opera-singing rocket scientists to get into college today.
