Navigating the College Admissions Process: College Admissions Experts Present a 3-Part Webinar Series for Parents and Teens

The college admissions challenge has ramped up with more outstanding students competing – while top colleges look beyond the simply well-rounded student profile of yore, seeking to fill their classes with extraordinary achievers from a greater range of candidates. Testing has evolved, too, with changes in the SAT and ACT and the weight they carry in admissions. Perhaps the only constant in college admissions is cost: it just continues upwards! 
How can families best help their children get in to the college of their dreams, making the right fit for the student – and family finances?
The Cornell Club is proud to present a special webinar series for alumni and their families featuring three experts in the college admissions process who will demystify these issues and tasks. Each 1-hour presentation will focus on one of three key facets of the college process – testing, applications and financing – so families will gain useful knowledge and get their questions answered, too. 
Attendees will gain concrete suggestions – as well as thought-provoking ideas – that will help their teens achieve smart, timely college prep and make all-round wise college choices. This is a terrific opportunity to get answers to your questions from three top advisors in college prep and admissions.
Attendees are invited to register for any or all of the presentations.
