COLLEGE RESUME BUILDING: How students can present their unique strengths and interests amidst a competitive application pool.
This workshop is ideal for rising 9th-through-11th-grade students and their families.
Students need to be involved outside the classroom to gain a competitive edge during the college admissions process. Building your college resume as early as possible, for rising 9th graders, is key to creating a fluid and well thought out narrative to convey to colleges. Additionally, it is never too late for rising 10th and 11th-grade students to add key dimensions to their resumes as well. Just as students should build a strong GPA, transcript, and test scores over four years, so too should they assess, develop, and communicate their passion in meaningful ways. While college admissions officers expect academic excellence, they also want to see students that demonstrate an interest and investment in their passion and the world around them.
