Twenty Years in College Admission — What Has Changed, What Hasn’t
"I like ducks." This was the first sentence of a college admission essay written 30 years ago. The essayist got into Harvard, and this example was taught to prep classes around the country-at that time. Things have changed quite a bit since then. Essays are being replaced by viral videos, viral videos are being replaced by influencer driven content... It's hard for parents to understand the constant necessity for their kids to jump headlong into the social media sea, but then try to stay dry. Now that there is a good number of college admissions that will look at your child's social media, we have to be one step ahead of current trends of what is desirable for college admissions today. This event features Alice Kleeman, former M-A College Advisor and Angel Pérez, PhD-both that have over 20 years of experience in admissions, They will be holding talks that will help you help your kid navigate the college admissions gauntlet.
