Arun and I had a lot of fun doing our first episode of "College Admissions Live" (our experiment with online TV–you can watch the first episode about college essays here). And while we did prove that we knew more about admissions than we did about good video quality, we're working on the latter and are excited to announce our next episode.
How to Revive Lifeless College Applications
with hosts Kevin McMullin and Arun Ponnusamy
Wednesday, November 3
Live @ 6 p.m. PST
For free, at our online channel
What we'll cover
Even the most accomplished student can look dull when reduced to a dry listing of grades, test scores and activities. How can your college applications tell a compelling story of you and your high school career? Join us to learn:
• Why sharing fewer activities and awards can tell a college even more about you.
• How successful applicants inject personality to make their applications memorable (without resorting to gimmicks).
• Why resumes, extra letters of recommendation, and samples of your art or music sometimes hurt your chances more than they help.
We’ll talk for about 30 minutes, then take questions from the audience for 15 minutes.
No reservations required. Just drop in at the start time. And if you'd like us to send you an email reminder the day of the show, just register here.
We hope you'll tune in to join us!
