#087 - Today, we continue our conversation focused on the most important portions of your college application that will garner the attention of College Admission Officers. Depending on what they find on your application, they will decide to continue exploring your qualifications, or not simply deny you admission to that college or university. On this episode, Jankel and I present a very important way to present yourself in a way that impresses Admission Officers, giving you a great chance to succeed as an applicant. This particular way to stand out is, in fact, extremely important and should be part of your college admission strategy. It is so important that for selective colleges and universities, it carries more weight than having a very high grade point average. We also continue our list of key points to remember as you learn to think as a College Admission Officer, so that with that information in hand, you could give yourself the best chance to succeed. At the beginning of the episode, I share with you some of the heartbreaking stories I have been told by some of the high school students with whom I have had an opportunity to speak. These stories highlight the disadvantage that the vast majority of high school students currently face, namely, navigating the college admission process in high school with very little information or support in school or at home. We present the activities we carry out at The College Metropolis as a way to help our high school students make informed decisions and carry out their college admission goals.
