An Evening Presentation on College Admissions
Wednesday, April 26 at 7:00pm
Woodbridge HS Staff Lounge (please enter through the quad)

Information will be provided on the following topics:

Secrets of College Admissions
This night will help families separate college admissions fact from fiction and enjoy the college process a little more. 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.

How to Write Great College Essays
Many great kids write average (even bad) college essays—essays about “life lessons learned from football,” or “how my trip to Europe broadened my cultural horizons." Better tales are there for the writing. This night will demonstrate what admissions officers really look for in great college essays, and offer suggestions for finding and sharing your best stories.

Highly-Selective College Admissions
The night will also touch on strategies to improve a student’s chances of admission at the most selective schools.
