How to Choose the RIGHT Major

College applications are a stressful undertaking. With a time crunch to complete essays, shore up activities, ask for recommendations, and build a college list, choosing the right major is an added stressor that many fail to consider. After all, you should major in what you like, right?

  • How different colleges treat the choice of major (e.g. liberal arts colleges, top-30, large state schools)
  • Consequences of choosing certain majors
  • Places where procedures allow for flexibility
  • Ways to build a competitive college application around the choice of major
  • The pros and cons of applying undecided

Join the college application experts from The Admissions Angle as they share strategies for choosing a major. The webinar will conclude with a Q and A panel for asking your unique questions surrounding the college admissions process.

Building a Competitive College Admissions Strategy

College admissions officers see thousands of applications each year, but admissions are more competitive than ever before. With coronavirus changing the landscape for higher education and college admissions, it is critically important to start the application process early.

Join us for a free webinar wherein the independent educational consultants from The Admissions Angle will offer their expert advice on the following:

College admissions strategy: What will help your application stand out from the rest? What are admissions officers hoping to see in an applicant? How can you take your existing profile and transform it into a competitive application?

College admissions procedures: How do admissions officers choose students? What metrics are they looking at?

Appealing to competitive colleges: What are top colleges looking for? Who have they been admitting? What does the future of college admissions look like in an increasingly competitive atmosphere?

Extracurricular activities: What are the best extracurricular activities for college admissions? How can you begin to build up your extracurricular activities now, or, if you are a rising senior, how can you shore up any deficits?

Profiles of successful students: What does the profile of a successfully admitted student look like? What were their test scores and GPA? What did they write about in their essays?

This free webinar is geared towards high school students of all grades. The webinar will be followed by a question and answer session where attendees are invited to ask about unique circumstances.

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.
