Using Extracurricular Activities to Gain the Edge in College Admissions
September 22 @ 7pm EST
Academic success and standardized test scores are only part of what gets a student accepted into college. A student’s extracurricular activities show a student’s talent, commitment, and curiosity, and can oftentimes ‘tip the admissions scale.’
Participants will learn:
• How admissions officers evaluate extracurricular activities
• How to get started with and stand out using school-based activities, personal interests, work experience, and more
• Why quality is more important than quantity
Join Jon Megerian, Director of College Advising at International College Counselors, for this free, interactive webinar.
A Q&A will follow the presentation. Send your questions in advance to: Jon@InternationalCollegeCounselors.com
“During the past ten years, the Friends of the Stirling Road Library has partnered with International College Counselors to create, develop, and present programs regarding the college admissions process…Since our initial program, we have become the “go-to” library for this initiative, thanks to the outstanding content and presentations of ICC and our college program has served hundreds of students and their families during this time…The presenters from ICC were professional, thorough, and dynamic. As in the past, our group was impressed with the quality and breadth of the presentations…The positive feedback from the families, together with the recognition we have received from the community, confirms that these programs are the jewel in our offerings and we value our partnership with ICC.”

“Thank you! I thought your presentation was wonderful and time appropriate. So many changes since my college years. I will be contacting the branches in the north area to let them know what a great job you do! Hopefully, in the future, WBB will be able to create more interest with our students and parents in this demanding, time-essential life hurtle their children will face.”
– Cynthia Permenter, Branch Manager, West Boynton Branch Library

You held the audience’s interest with your excellent speaking skills and engaging presentation filled with relevant information about the college application process. You kept it fun and light.
