There has never been a more difficult time to apply to colleges than during the era of COVID-19. Colleges continue to make changes to their admissions processes, making things even more opaque than normal. Here are just a few of the reasons it’s even more important to work with our knowledgeable team:
- Most students haven’t had as much direct contact with their guidance counselor or college counselor at school. This comes at a time of extensive change and a new admissions landscape.
- Many more colleges have extended their test optional policies for the class of 2022, so it’s vital to understand the importance of testing and how it plays a part in the admissions decisions from one school to another.
- It’s difficult to comprehend how differently each school district across the country has handled schooling in 2020 and 2021. Because of all of the challenges, it’s even more difficult to understand how GPA will play into the admissions decision.
- Not only have academics been impacted, but extra-curricular activities have also either been removed or reduced in many cases.
Here’s the moral of the story: without test scores, consistent grading in school, and opportunities to be involved in extra-curricular activities and community service – how will colleges make their decision for the Fall of 2022?! Let us help you not leave things entirely to chance.
