College Admissions

College admissions isn't a mysterious process, but it is one that requires lots of due diligence and digital paperwork.  Students need to combine self-reflection with solid research on post-secondary opportunities that match them on a range of factors.  No two college search processes are the same and students should look beyond the latest “ranking” and “name-brand” to find more meaningful measures of college fit.

If you are applying to a specific school, a portfolio review during National Portfolio Day will often serve as your admission portfolio review.
