Join AcceptU’s former admissions officers as they provide an overview of the college admissions landscape and how families can best prepare for success in the process. This month, we discuss how to stand out at competitive high schools. High achieving students can often blend into the pack, participating in the same activities and taking the same classes as their peers. In this session we’ll provide insights and recommendations on how to achieve success and create a unique profile at competitive high schools.
