So, you heard that Penn was in town this weekend….after the fact. How did the other families and students know?
Well, it doesn’t really matter. Why your student did not receive an invite can be attributed to a number of factors. It could be something like a test score or that the other family knows an alumnus.
It’s not worth getting anxious over.
It’s better to focus your energy on getting invited to the information events your student interested in.
To get the invite all you need to do is ask. (Or have your college admissions counselor ask for you).
Getting invited to college information sessions is as easy as going to the website and signing up on the admissions page to learn more. Every school that our college admissions counselors know of (except Harvard) has such a list.
For younger students in particular, International College Counselors recommends “group” college visits. This way a student can learn about a number of schools at one time.

The expert college counselors at International College Counselors recommend you go to as many information sessions as you can.
What are information sessions?
Information Sessions are a chance for prospective students and their families the opportunity to learn more about a university’s academic and student life from members of the admission staff. These university representatives travel around the U.S. and the world reaching out to students. At these sessions, students also gain insights into the admission, financial aid and scholarship process. The goal of each session is to provide a comprehensive overview of the school and answer any and all questions students or their parents may have. Generally, each session lasts approximately a hour. Current students and/or alumni may attend depending on where and when the information session is held. Sometimes food is served, and sometimes it’s not.
