Applicants must convey to admissions committees a purposeful commitment to involvement and leadership outside the classroom. In this webinar you and your child will learn: 

  • Why extracurricular and summer activities matter to admissions officers 
  • How leadership is evaluated 
  • Common misconceptions when it comes to extracurricular activities
  • Why admissions committees have re-evaluated the term “well-rounded”
