How To Navigate the Challenging College Admissions Environment & How to Write Your Application Essay

 This college admissions cycle is turning out to be the most competitive to date. The reason is that most colleges went test-optional due to the pandemic and colleges increased their virtual outreach to high school students resulting in a record number of candidates applying.

This program covers how admissions officers are handling the current situation and how students can position themselves to develop a compelling narrative through their personal statement (the “big” essay) and supplemental essays to increase their chances for admission.

We will also discuss the importance of community service, how it can provide an opportunity for personal growth and showcase a student’s character.

The presentation will be led by Ron Feuchs and Jackie Tepper, partners at Stand Out For College, LLC.

Camryn Garrett was born and raised in New York. In 2019, she was named one of Teen Vogue’s 21 Under 21 and a Glamour College Woman of the Year. Her first novel, Full Disclosure, received rave reviews from outlets such as Entertainment Weekly, the Today Show, and The Guardian, which called a “warm, funny and thoughtfully sex-positive, an impressive debut from a writer still in her teens.” Her second novel, Off the Record, was published in May. Camryn is also interested in film and is a student at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. You can find her on Twitter @dancingofpens, tweeting from a laptop named Stevie.

Maxine Kaplan was born in Washington, DC.

Maxine graduated from Oberlin College in 2007. Following a long stint in the world of publishing, she has worked as a private investigator since 2009. She lives in her adopted hometown of Brooklyn, NY, with her dimwitted, but soulful cat.

Anica grew up in Maine and spent many years in New York City, where she worked as an executive editor in children’s book publishing.
