Description

Ever wondered what happens once your application reaches the university admissions committee?

We're taking the guesswork out of the admissions process and giving you a peek inside the closed doors of a university admissions office. Be a part of an authentic and interactive mock admissions committee at a prestigious US university as they debate and discuss student applications and make an 'accept', 'reject' and 'waitlist' decision. The panel will be moderated by a former Ivy League admissions officer- Meredith Graham, who will offer her own personal experience and observations of the real process.

The mock admission panel will be followed by a session on writing the US Common App essay. Join us as Meredith will discuss the purpose of the application essays as well as the essential components of winning essays. She will also explain what U.S. admissions officers really look for in great college essays and offer suggestions for finding and sharing your best stories.

About Meredith:

Meredith spent seven years as an Associate Director of Admissions at Cornell University. She also earned a master’s degree in higher education and worked as an Associate Director at Boston University and an Academic Advisor at Purdue University. A scientist and a counselor at heart, Meredith is the author of the Collegewise publication STEM’s Many Branches: College Planning for Students Considering Majors in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.
