The College Admission Formula

What is the key to getting into the college of your choice? How do admission committees determine who is going to fill their incoming class?

On Sunday, September 15th from 2:00-4:00 PM at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, you’ll be reviewing a case study where you will choose who is accepted, who is wait-listed, and who is rejected.

After the the case study concludes, we’ll review some real college application essays so you can see which ones wowed admission offices at top-tier institutions.

St. Mark’s parishioner Kristin Nichols, M. Ed. will be leading this event. With twelve years experience in undergraduate admission at some of the east coast’s most competitive institutions, Kristin can provide you and your parents with insight on what it takes to stand out amongst the thousands of other college applicants.

This event is open to current seniors in high school in the Metrowest area and their parents, so please feel free to invite your friends. Space is limited to the first 25 families who RSVP.

Thank you. Sounds like a nice event, but should focus on Juniors, not seniors. For seniors, it’s too late.

Hey Robinson,

Thanks for the interest. If this run is successful–and given that seniors are the ones working on applications currently, they are the right target–we may do it again in the springtime for juniors. Most early application deadlines are late October/early November, so it’s not too late yet!
