Top Colleges 101:
Applying to Competitive Universities

If you’re like most families, coronavirus has thrown a major wrench in your plans. Teenagers are now stuck at home, with no summer camps, no extracurricular activities, and no jobs or internships to look forward to. If you’re a parent, you may be wondering how to approach this summer so that your teenager stays productive, stimulated, and competitive for college admissions.

In this free webinar, we will be discussing ways to keep your teenager active throughout a summer that promises to be non-traditional. While colleges understand the unique challenges of a housebound summer, they are also expecting students to come up with creative ways to stay involved, either academically or through their community. We will be discussing activities, projects, and methods for helping your teenager, whether they are an underclassman or a rising senior.

Moreover, we will be helping parents understand the avenues that they can take to help keep their teenager accountable. With so many parents assuming the roles of teacher and now guidance counselor, things can get complicated. But don’t worry, we’re here to help.

Join us for a webinar followed by a question and answer session, wherein you can ask questions related to your unique situation.

Extracurricular Activities and
College Admissions

When it comes to college admissions, all extracurricular activities are not created equally. How can you make your extracurricular activities work to your advantage? Which activities have the greatest admissions value? Are you making the best use of your time, or is it time to drop one activity and pick up another?

We at The Admissions Angle have years of experience helping students gain admission to top colleges including Stanford, Penn, Caltech, Johns Hopkins, and many more. Through this experience, we have developed a list of what we believe to be the most valuable extracurricular activities for admissions. Join us to learn more about how athletics, the arts, student research, community service, etc. work (or don’t work!) to bolster an admissions strategy.
