Current high school juniors are facing several unprecedented challenges including grades for this spring marking period will be looked at with "an asterisk", several ACT and SAT tests have been cancelled and more colleges are going test optional so meaningful activities that juniors can do this summer (assuming we're past the current Coronavirus situation) will be even more heavily weighted in the college admissions process. Juniors can be proactive by using their time constructively now to work on their Personal Statement (Common App) essay, define as best they can their college list, and determine which teachers they will ask to write their recommendations.
The Ruth Keeler Memorial Library is hosting this Zoom presentation, in North Salem, NY on Wednesday, May 27 at 7:00 pm on how the Coronavirus is affecting college admissions and what impact it will have on current Juniors and Sophomores.
The program will cover how admissions officers are handling the current situation and what impact this will have on how applicants for the Class of 2025 will be reviewed, with respect to grades, standardized tests and extracurricular activities. We will also discuss how timing for preparing college applications will change and ways for students to use their time productively NOW to prepare.
Come join us to learn about these changes and other insights regarding the college process. The presentation will be led by Ron Feuchs and Jackie Tepper, partners at Stand Out For College, LLC.
