Seminar Title: Tell Me About Yourself: Cracking The College Interview

Date: Saturday December 4th, 2010
Time: 12:00 – 2:00pm
Location: Midtown Manhattan (address furnished upon rsvp)
Workshop Description: Most selective colleges require an interview in addition to the application, and it's important to prepare thoroughly and thoughtfully for this final dimension of the admissions process. Students in this course will discuss the purpose and spirit of the college interview and how to prepare for a successful conversation. In particular, this seminar will focus on how students can turn significant life experiences into engaging anecdotes that illustrate broader points about their character, their goals, and their aspirations. This seminar will feature mock interviews and extensive in-class participation.

Seminar Title: The College Essay: How Do I Tell My Story?
Date: Sunday December 5th, 2010
Time: 12:00-2:00pm
Location: Midtown Manhattan (address furnished upon rsvp)
Workshop Description: The Common Application asks students to evaluate a significant experience, risk they've taken, or challenge they've faced and its impact on their lives. This seminar will help students approach the college essay and discover how to translate significant life experiences into strong essays that resonate with admissions officers. Students will discuss best practices for turning their experiences into thoughtful, memorable, high-impact essays that will contribute a meaningful dimension to their college applications. This course is suitable for sophomores and juniors with college still on the horizon, and it is even better suited to seniors in the throes of the college admission process. During this lecture style course, College interview questions will also be discussed in depth.
