In addition to these insights, attendees will have a chance to submit a personalized application related question in advance of the workshop that will either be addressed during the workshop or within the Google Classroom community that all attendees will have access to upon registration.

This workshop is completely ONLINE, which mean there is a LIVE STREAM with the speaker Thursday at 6:30pm, followed by access to Google Classroom portal where you can share ideas and resources, as well as have access to a personal statement writing template.
