College Advising Update: Keeping You Abreast of Ongoing Changes in Higher Education - 5/12/20

SENIORS

 

It was wonderful getting to see so many of you while we delivered yard signs throughout the day on Friday! We enjoyed sharing in your excitement and enthusiasm as we celebrated your accomplishments. We are so looking forward to seeing you again in a few short weeks during senior graduation package pick-up on May 22nd.

 

In the link below, you’ll find our college advising updates for this week with a variety of resources that you may find helpful as you continue to look towards finalizing your college plans over the coming weeks and months. As you have probably learned from our weekly update email, we love sharing articles that are timely and relevant given the current circumstances and the many unknowns that we have all questioned and tried to think through. This week is no exception (courtesy of Georgia Tech, yet again!). In The Next Right Thing, we are encouraged to think “What next?” after consistent messages from so many sources relaying the message “I don’t know” or “wait and see.” However, the question isn’t simply “What next?”; rather, what is the next right thing that you can do now, whether you’re a student, parent, or just someone trying to navigate the uncertainty of our present circumstances. If you can spare a few minutes, it is a meaningful and insightful piece.

 

We also encourage you to refer back to the National College Decision Day email that we sent to seniors earlier this month, as it includes a helpful list of to-do’s/steps to consider prior to matriculation in the fall. If you have not already done so, please be sure to also complete the End of Year Decision Form - Class of 2020.

  • Spreadsheet with a list of colleges and their virtual campus  tour links

  • List of colleges accepting 2020 AP credits

  • Class of 2024 waitlist notification dates and stats

 

JUNIORS

 

As you have probably learned from our weekly update email, we love sharing articles that are timely and relevant given the current circumstances and the many unknowns that we have all questioned and tried to think through. This week is no exception, with a poignant open letter courtesy of Emory University. In An Open Letter to Juniors and Sophomores, Giselle F. Martin, Director of Recruitment and Talent at Emory, writes candidly and presents much insight for sophomores and juniors thinking about their next steps. If you can spare a few minutes, it is a meaningful and insightful piece.

 

Last week, we enjoyed spending time with our juniors for the third and final session in a three-part series presented by the College Advising Office. Again, we had a wonderful turnout and our juniors asked some great questions in preparation for the college admissions process that they’ll be undertaking in a few short months. We’d like to share with you the resources that we prepared for all three sessions and they are accessible below. 

 

Workshop 1 for Juniors: Teacher Recommendation Letters

 

Workshop 2 for Juniors: Essays/Personal Statements and Resume Development

 

Workshop 3: Introduction to College Applications

 

Lastly, our weekly college advising update for juniors is available below. Please read the latest edition, which includes important information about:

 

  • ACT Test Online at Home and upcoming webinars through ACT, Inc.

  • Links to upcoming virtual college fair events / information sessions (including May events with Emory University, Johns Hopkins University, University of Notre Dame, and Washington University in St. Louis)

  • Tutoring and free test preparation opportunities through our partners at Revolution Prep

FRESHMEN AND SOPHOMORES

 

Over the past few weeks, we’ve been communicating with you to provide updates from the College Advising office focusing on changes in the higher education landscape as the situation with COVID-19 continues to evolve. Our goal is to provide information that will allow your child to continue building an awareness of the ways to maintain a strong academic and extracurricular profile to the best of their ability, given the transition to online learning and limitations on involvement in the community. In the link below, you’ll find information on a variety of topics that may be helpful in facilitating meaningful conversations about college planning with your freshman or sophomore student.

 

Also, as you have probably learned from our weekly update email, we love sharing articles that are timely and relevant given the current circumstances and the many unknowns that we have all questioned and tried to think through. This week is no exception, with a poignant open letter courtesy of Emory University. In An Open Letter to Juniors and Sophomores, Giselle F. Martin, Director of Recruitment and Talent at Emory, writes honestly and presents much insight for sophomores and juniors thinking about their next steps. If you can spare a few minutes, it is a meaningful and insightful piece. While the letter is addressed to juniors and sophomores, it contains great advice that actually applies to our 9th grade students as well.
