Relieving Anxiety in College Bound Seniors: What’s actually happening within the Office of Admissions?

Recorded On: 07/10/2018

Have you, or one of your students, ever wondered what are the inner workings of an admissions office? From beginning to end, what actually happens once a student clicks the submit button on the application? Join admissions counselors from Carnegie Mellon University, Iowa State University, and Purdue University to discuss our admissions processes.

Our objectives are twofold. First, to provide independent educational consultants, working with college bound students, a detailed overview of various application review methods. Some schools take several months to release decisions while others release decisions instantly. Second, we will share how technology has shaped application review. The impact of technological advancement has allowed us to streamline the review process. We hope that the knowledge we share during this webinar helps you to relieve anxieties from students and parents.
