Recording of webinar on College Admissions amid Coronavirus 

 

 

On May 6, 2020 we hosted a webinar to discuss the many recent changes in the college admissions process due to the coronavirus, including:

* standardized testing (ACT, SAT, AP, subject tests)
* effects of pass/fail courses on GPA
* how colleges will assess students without grades and test scores
* what to do this summer now that many programs are canceled
* effects of shrinking college endowments and state funding
* new considerations when writing application essays
* the move towards online learning and what to expect on college campuses next year
* creating a college list when so many factors are in flux
* considering a gap year due to the uncertainty of college resuming in person this fall
