Highly Selective Admissions

April 26, 2022 - 5:00pm (PST)

Hosted By: Sam Joustra + Brenna Heintz

Grades, test scores, and impressive activities alone won’t get a student admitted to schools that reject almost all of their applicants. So how do students who get accepted to the Ivy Leagues, Stanford, Tufts and the rest of the nation’s most selective colleges set themselves apart from the rest of the applicant pool? We’ll show you at this webinar. We’ll also reveal some Collegewise strategies to improve a student’s chances of admission at the most selective schools. While we don’t believe that prestigious colleges are necessarily better colleges, we want students who are interested in these schools to have straight answers about what it will really take to have a shot at getting in.

Character Counts

May 18, 2022 - 5:00pm (PST)

Hosted By: Arun Ponnusamy + Cecelia Grano De Oro

When applying to college, students and parents understand the role of grades, course rigor, and standardized testing. An increasingly important element is Social and Emotional Learning. In this presentation, you’ll learn how SEL distinguishes itself from academic factors and why even the most selective of colleges place an immense value on empathy, ethical behavior, and engagement with others. We will discuss this in relation to course selection, extracurricular activities, and building a smart college list. There will also be practical advice for students who are seeking to understand themselves better and portray the most authentic version of themselves in their application.
