Highly Selective College Admissions

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 Ivy Leagues, Stanford, Northwestern, 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 virtual seminar. We'll also reveal some Collegewise strategies to improve a student's chances of admissions 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.

Age level: High school juniors and seniors & parents
