Do you ever wonder what college admissions officers really think...?
If you've ever wanted to know what it's like to be on the admissions committee of a selective college, this is your opportunity! You'll be presented with a few model students and will be asked to choose one to admit to your college. Through this hands-on simulation run by a former admissions officer at a highly selective college, you'll have a chance to understand the complex roles that SAT score, extracurricular participation, and unusual personal circumstances can play in an admissions decision.
This workshop will be led by Amy Estersohn. Amy Estersohn is an English teacher, a book reviewer and a college admissions consultant. As an undergraduate, she contributed over 350 blog posts to the University of Chicago's college admissions blog, so she knows what it feels like to have to write about yourself for a public audience. After graduating from the University of Chicago with a degree in English, she worked for the Office of College Admissions at UChicago, where she reviewed over 4,000 college essays.
This is an interactive workshop for students only. Parents can observe, but not participate.
