On Tuesday evening, the College Counseling Office hosted a program for parents of eighth through eleventh grade students. Country Day was privileged to welcome four experienced college admissions representatives from Florida State University, Goucher College (MD), the University of Miami, and The Ohio State University. Our guests spoke on three topics each and then answered questions submitted by the 80-plus parents in attendance.
On Wednesday, these experts conducted case study workshops with our juniors who reviewed four sample applications and, then, acted in mock admissions committees to decide whom to admit, waitlist, or deny. This exercise, often using the same framework, is commonly held at independent schools nationally and internationally. Two of our presenters commended our juniors on the decisions they rendered and the reasons they offered. We look forward to hosting similar programs in the future with admissions experts representing the wide range of colleges and universities that serve our graduates well.
Join us Tuesday, February 12 @ 7:00pm for a panel with College Admission experts in the Center for the Arts.
Admission officers from The Ohio State University, Florida State University, Goucher College, and the University of Miami will be on campus to share inside information on trends in the admissions process from a private, public, research, and specialized institutional perspective. Parents of 8th to 11th graders are encouraged to attend!
Officers will work with juniors and go through a mock interview process during the day!
Cornell University, Duke University, Florida University, Florida State University, The George Washington University, Indiana University at Bloomington, Johns Hopkins University, MIT, University of Miami, University of Michigan, University of Pennsylvania, Syracuse University, Tufts University, University of Virginia, and Yale University are just some of the colleges in the Class of 2019's list of college acceptances.
Congratulations to all of our seniors as they embark on the next step of their academic career. Pictured from left to right are seniors Evi A., Remy C., Laureen J., David B., and Louis S.!
