Episode #61: How College Admissions Is Changing (and What You Must Focus on Moving Forward)

The process of college admissions is starting to look a LOT different. If your dream is to open that acceptance letter from your dream Ivy League & top-tier university, you’ll want to be ahead of the curve.

During this global pandemic, colleges have to start thinking about how they’re going to assess students fairly and adequately. But what does that mean for YOU?

For one, it’s not just about SAT or ACT scores anymore. For some students, it can’t be.

So, when the times are changing, you’ve gotta change with them!

In this week’s episode, I talk all about how you should be showcasing your successes in this time of change.

We’ll cover UC’s new policies regarding SAT/ACT scores, the shifting standards in college admissions, and how you can still make progress right now (even while social distancing).

Listen now to learn how you can still CRUSH IT on your Ivy League & Top-tier college applications!

TUNE IN BELOW:

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN ABOUT IN THIS EPISODE:

  • What you need to make a #1 PRIORITY in your college applications process
  • What action steps you need to take to stand out to schools (without SAT/ACT scores!)
  • Tips to take your GPA from a-okay to AMAZING
  • How your Passion Project is going to change the way you tackle your college applications and your life!

NOTABLE QUOTES:

More than anything, what is really going to make a difference in you doing well in school and getting good grades is your mindset and time management skills.
A lot of students ask their teachers like last-minute for rec letters, but now you really need to work with a different strategy given that the SAT and ACT have less value in the application.
Working on your Passion Project… you're showing colleges that you're going above and beyond just the norm, that you are putting yourself out there and doing things that are changing the world.
