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. Actively use the senior high school years to provide a trajectory into a spectacular and worthwhile college experience which should be foundational for fulfilling future careers and adult life. Instead of worrying about which college will accept you, use strategies that will make them court you instead.
That said, how does a student truly get into the best possible college with large scholarships and grants? Surely you have heard many different ideas. To answer that crucial question, this Success Seminar systematically examines a number of educational philosophies, methods, strategies, obstacles, and difficulties that people experience regarding ESSAYS, INTERVIEWS, LETTERS OF RECOMMENDATION, SCHOLARSHIPS, and GRANTS.
Gain perspective to discern what you should and should not convey in your essays and interviews. Learn about the real and significant uses of the college admissions essays that you probably don't realize and plan ahead for. This is one of those moments when there truly is 'power of the pen.' Realize what you should do to prepare for these essays and interviews years in advance... and learn what you can do now if you are a senior in high school with very little time.
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. 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. These are just a few of the topics covered during this Success Seminar.
