Apply Like a Boss: Launching Your College Process with Smarts and Savvy | The Cornell Club New York | Saturday, 25. April 2020

The college admissions process has officially begun:  You and your 11th grader have met with the college counselor.  Test prep is under way.  You are planning for college visits in the coming months.  As your child embarks on this intense and high-stakes several months, Eva Ostrum, a former Yale admissions officer and lifelong educator, can help. 
Eva provides college admissions counseling that supports students in putting their best foot forward, while at the same time reducing stress and making the process manageable. By the end of three hours working interactively with Eva, your child will learn to

Identify and navigate opportunities and pitfalls of the college application process;

Use a research-based test prep strategy that has the potential to increase ACT/SAT scores, especially in persistently lagging sections of the test;

Present extracurriculars for maximum impact, even within the space limitations of the Common Application;

Select teachers to write recommendations that make a difference;

Understand what "fit" means from a college's perspective and apply that understanding to developing a college list; and

Make an informed and strategic decision about whether to apply Early Action, Early Decision, or Regular Decision.

Unlike other methods that focus on packaging, branding, or simply “getting in,” Eva’s holistic approach highlights your child's strengths and identifies opportunities for a rich and rewarding college experience. Your child will leave the workshop with an individualized plan to approach the college admissions process with energy and confidence. 
Registration will be limited to the first 12 respondents, so reserve your child's place now!  A complimentary buffet breakfast will be served.
