Presenters: Joan Casey and Laurel Weijer, Educational Advocates College Consulting
Applying to college can be confusing. Students can feel pressured to apply early decision before they are ready, and, while the test optional movement has opened doors for many students, it leaves them unsure about whether they should submit scores or not. While a student’s academic success is very important, parents may be surprised to hear that straight A students are not always admitted—even when their grades are above the average for the college in question. This is due to the range of other variables—some obvious, many not—that are also considered in a college’s decision.
In this session, our goal is to help you make sense of the admissions process so you can make wise choices when applying. We will explore topics such as enrollment management, define yield, and discuss how the use of algorithms impacts the admission decisions. Demographic considerations factor into the creation of a class at most colleges, and sometimes choice of major does too. We will also discuss the reasons behind dramatic increases in applications at certain colleges and universities. Both parents and students will benefit from this presentation, and will leave the session feeling more confident about how to tackle the college admissions process in 2022.
