It took a pandemic to enact some of the recent changes in college admissions. Standardized test scores, once considered the best predictor of academic success, are now taking a back seat to the transcript and personal characteristics such as authenticity and resilience. Unconventional activities like beekeeping and blogging are getting their due. Even the Common Application has added a new essay question that asks students to write about something that makes them happy or grateful. This process has really changed since we were teenagers in high school!

In this webinar, we’ll provide updates on the first admissions cycle during COVID and changes coming to the FAFSA, as well as tips for helping students maximize extracurricular activities and summer vacation.
