About this webinar

From an admissions perspective, a strong academic profile alone is not enough to gain admission into highly selective colleges and universities. 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 even more now to admissions officers 
  • How leadership is judged
  • Common misconceptions when it comes to involvement outside the classroom 
  • Why admissions committees have re-evaluated the term “well-rounded”
