Parents, The College Office will be available in the Sulzbacher Private Dining Room between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 25 to discuss your student's PSAT scores.
Our upcoming College Night program for all juniors and their parents will meet in the Dodd Banquet Room at 7:00 PM on Wednesday night, January 23. All Juniors are expected to attend, and all parents are urged to attend if at all possible.
We will be giving you information about our expectations for juniors and parents in the college admissions process for the remainder of the junior year. We will discuss the assignment of college advisors, developing lists of prospective colleges, finding the right fit, and how colleges will evaluate your students when they apply.
We are extremely fortunate to have as our guest speaker for the evening Patrick Winter, Associate Vice-President for Admissions and Enrollment Management, the University of Georgia. Patrick is an extremely knowledgeable and experienced admissions professional who will explain how selective colleges, both public and private, read holistically to evaluate applicants - and what factors go into the decision. While he will obviously reference the University of Georgia in his comments, his presentation will be more general in nature rather than college-specific. In addition, Ms. Brewer and Mr. Moss will explain how other colleges evaluate applicants largely by using a numbers-driven process.
We anticipate ample time to address your questions. For parents of boarding students who are unable to attend, we will live stream the program on the Dar Student News.
