#086 – This is a very special episode in which I am joined by my son who will share with us some of his observations about a recent trip we took to visit some of the schools to which he will apply. These include, UC Berkeley, Stanford University, and UC Santa Barbara. Although his ultimate goal is to do graduate work in vertebrate paleontology, his undergraduate degree will be in geology. The trip was very informative. As the episode progresses, I share ways in which students can learn to think like college admission officers, and in doing so, use that information to help their chances for admission, especially into the more selective schools. While I present the first portion of the application that catches the attention of admission officers, I uncover the three very important questions they try to answer as they explore each application. By the end of the episode, you will know those three very important questions, and you will be better prepared to present yourself in the best light possible. Additionally, I contrast the core course requirements for Virginia Tech and UT Austin, as well as additional requirements for the UT Austin School of Architecture and the Cockrell School of Engineering.
