About this webinar

Join AcceptU for a panel discussion exclusively for school counselors with current admissions officers from four colleges and universities you might not have heard of: Bates College, College of Charleston, Ithaca College and University of Puget Sound. We will discuss the previous year in admissions – challenges and success – and preview the upcoming cycle. Topics include standardized testing; campus visits; and important factors in the application review process. We ask that only school counselors/administrators, not prospective families, attend this session.

In lieu of the traditional “counselor breakfast,” we will be sending a $5 Starbucks gift card to all attendees of the webinar.
