From the comfort of your home, call in and join admissions gurus Dr. Michele Hernandez and Mimi Doe as they discuss how to give colleges more than they ask for and prepare applications that leverage your experience and strengths. This live event is perfect for seniors applying January 1st or juniors who want to get ahead.
More teenagers are applying to college today than ever before, and the competition for spots at top tier colleges and Ivy League schools is shocking: In 2011, Harvard had a 6 percent acceptance rate and received a record 35,000 applications. Early applications have increased this year at many schools; Duke University, for instance, had 23 percent more binding Early Decision applications, making it critical for regular decision applicants to have strong applications.
The college admissions process is not transparent. It is no longer simply a matter of achieving decent grades, participating in a few extracurricular activities, and writing an essay about a personal experience. On top of stellar transcripts, students must set themselves apart and use an online form that can be confusing even for computer-savvy teens.
As an added benefit to the teleseminar, U.S. News is offering a special 25 percent discount on the U.S. News College Compass and the 2012 Best Colleges Guidebook. The online U.S. News College Compass and print Best Colleges Guidebook provide expanded school profiles, additional test score data, financial aid information, and much more.
For the price of admission, participants in the live call will also receive Application Boot Camp’s Activity Sheet template, sample, and tips; a written transcript and MP3 audio of the event; and a bonus gift: Mysteries of the Online Common Application Revealed.
To join this dynamic evening of advice and tips for mastering the college application, head over to Application Boot Camp to sign up. Getting into college doesn’t have to be stressful! Knowledge is power, so get your application knowledge on December 19.
