College Admissions Seminars

Upcoming event:

Demystifying the College Application Process

Sunday, February 8, 2015. Charlotte, NC

 
The goal of the COLLEGE ADMISSIONS 101 event is to ‘kick start’ the education of parents and students with a concentrated three hour presentation of seminars which are customized to their needs. These college information sessions educate participants on “all you need to know about the college admissions process but were afraid, or more likely unaware of, to ask”.

The COLLEGE ADMISSIONS 101 experience allows each person to choose four seminars from a choice of, at least, nine subject areas. The admission price allows up to four family members to attend so, if you play your cards right, your family can participate in every seminar presentation! The topics include courses on how colleges make admissions decisions, financial aid and scholarships, determining which college is right for you, writing a college essay, and many more.

We invite you to come join us as we support you through the navigation of the college application process. You will learn the “dos and don’ts” of college admissions from some of the best experts in the field.
