Semester 1: Episode 8: How do college admissions committees review applications?

December 3, 2020

This special episode of Just Admit It! gives a sneak peek into an admissions committee via the IvyWise Roundtable process. Our unique Roundtable process simulates the real-world admissions committee that is found at top universities across the US. In this episode, IvyWise expert counselors Carolyn (Former Admissions Officer at Vanderbilt University), Victoria (Former Assistant Director of Admissions at the University of Chicago and Sarah Lawrence College), and Zach (Former Senior Assistant Director of Admissions at Boston College) review one of our pro bono students’ profile, transcript, Common App personal statement, and Stanford University supplements. We've posted the application materials on our Instagram (@FollowIvyWise) and podcast page so that you can follow along! (Spoiler alert: He ended up getting into all three of his top-choice universities, including Stanford!)
