College is becoming incredibly expensive, so students and parents should learn how to get the best outcomes from the investments that they have striven for. How does a student truly get into the best possible college with large scholarships and grants? This seminar discusses how colleges choose applicants, but it maintains a focus upon what is best for academic and professional development after acceptance into college.
This ECRIT Academy Success Seminar can help you discover and consider critical aspects of college preparation and the college admissions process that you wouldn't otherwise contemplate. Find out what the College Board and the admissions officers do not want you to know as universities change their criteria and methods. Understand why top grades, AP courses, and outstanding test scores are often not enough to create the best college application or attain significant scholarships. Realize what activities different universities may regard highly or not value. Gain insight into how different types of college admissions officers think, pick students, and distribute scholarships and grants. Learn about important techniques & strategies that you should start implementing and practicing (preferably years in advance). Obtain a method to determine which schools to avoid so that you aren't faced with the dilemma of transferring in the future. Hear about the positives and negatives of universities overseas. Avoid the passive, costly, and heartbreaking mistakes that others make in junior high school, senior high school, and college. Discern the various scams to avoid. Last, given that college applications are stressful for students and parents alike, figure out how to work collaboratively as a successful team from suggestions in the seminar.
