    Sophomore Families Benefit from Insiders’ View of College Admissions

    Have you ever wondered what criteria college admissions representatives really consider when reading college applications? Nearly 40 Wesleyan sophomores and 50 parents were able to demystify the application reading process during the Atlanta Invitational Case Studies (AICS) program this past Sunday, February 9. Prior to the event, families were provided with fictitious case study files of applicants to a sample university, which they read and evaluated. During Sunday’s event, attendees were broken into small groups and guided by a college admission professional to make admission decisions (admit, waitlist, deny) for those applicants. Decisions often seemed easy - or impossible - based on numbers alone, but attendees learned that factors such as major, geography, leadership, special talents, and rigor all play a key role in helping colleges make admission decisions and shape a class. With a better understanding of how applications are reviewed, students will now be able to meaningfully think about their own academics, activities, and involvement.
