Social Justice College Counseling…from the manual
Workshop attendees will receive a manual for future reference. Here is an excerpt from the manual:
Let me make that point more tangible. For a UC, if a large chunk of the students at a school takes AP Calculus, but the applicant has gone as far as Algebra II, that application is not going to be as competitive especially for the top schools. Yes, the student may have earned all As but the question from admissions would be: Why did the student not take advantage of all of the academic opportunities available at the high school? For a private, if a student has taken every AP course available at the high school but has not done any work in the community or any extra-curricular, admissions may wonder: Why has the student not used their time to contribute to the world around them? Two very different perspectives on what may seem like a standard view of an application.
Attend the workshop on May 9th for more tips! Be sure to buy your ticket before April 25 before the price goes up.
