Topic: Extracurricular Activities: Summer Planning for 2023
A student’s extracurricular profile has become a significant factor in college admissions, speaking volumes to a student’s intellectual curiosity, personal excellence, and character. So how do you go about building one? Should a student display a wide variety of interests, or deep interest in a single field? Do colleges care about the quantity over quality of activities? How can you distinguish yourself from other applicants? This is the time to showcase to colleges your passions and accomplishments outside of the classroom.

Topic- Changes and Trends: Analyzing Early Results

Topic: Standardized Testing in College Admissions – A Changing Landscape
The role of standardized testing has shifted greatly over the last few years, and students need to adjust accordingly. With the advent of test-optional policies in response to decreased testing availability during COVID-19, along with the elimination of the SAT and SAT Subject Tests, how should students think about the SAT and AP exams?
In this webinar, also learn about the importance of AP exams in College Admissions. With SAT Exams becoming optional for many universities, Advanced Placement classes can set applicants apart in a competitive college admissions environment, demonstrating the ability to perform well on more challenging coursework. Hear from the experts about how to maximize your standardized testing strategy in college admissions.
