Understanding College Admissions
Ivy Bound is offering an Evening “Ed” Talk online through Zoom. Ted talks are broad and often a bit fuzzy. Ivy Bound’s “Ed” Talks are narrow and specific. We hone these to one or two topics with an insightful, fast-paced presenter.
The focus of the seminar is to prepare parents for what to expect on standardized tests in the modern College Admissions process. Conducted by Ivy Bound founder, Mark Greenstein, and one of Ivy Bound’s Senior Instructors, the seminar will answer:
- What is tested on the current ACT / SAT and how should kids attack it?
- Where does the ACT / SAT fit into the college admissions scheme?
- Where do the SAT Subject Tests fit in and when should we schedule these?
- What’s are the ACT and SAT essays like and how are they graded?
- Is the ACT / SAT fair? Is it “coachable”? Is it culturally biased?
- What are AP tests? Who should take these, and when?
- Don’t grades count anymore?
- What’s the use of the PSAT?
- How does Early Decision affect admissions?
- What else are colleges looking for?
- How do ACT / SAT scores affect financial aid offers?
- How do ACT / SAT scores affect athletic recruitment?
- What are effective ways to prep for the ACT, SAT, and SAT Subject Tests?
The online seminar is free to attend but does require advanced registration.
