The college admissions process can be very stressful for an applicant. The fear of being rejected can cause a lot of anxiety. Grades and test scores are definitely vital in college admission, but the admissions committee is also looking for committed candidates who will round out a diverse first-year class. How can one craft a personal statement to hook the admissions committee’s attention and prove that their candidacy is what this particular university is looking for? What should a student do if they are waitlisted? ACT or SAT – should an applicant take them? All of these and other questions will be covered during our podcast talk.
Our guest is Jennifer Imrie, a college planner and a test prep tutor. Since 2018 she has worked with more than 200 high school students. Jennifer knows everything about the admissions college process and is passionate about writing and editing.
