📝 Description

How did you spend your summer when you were a student? Perhaps you had a summer job, lounged by the pool or maybe you travelled with your family. For today’s student however summer looks rather different, as university admission has become so fiercely competitive. Therefore, now more than ever, it is important for our students and clients to supercharge their summer allowing them to boost their college application profile.

In this session, we will look at the key elements admissions officers look for during the evaluation process, and explore how honing skills, gaining experience through internships, volunteer work and extracurricular activities, and taking additional coursework and certifications can make or break a college application.
