College Essay Strategies - Telling Unique Stories After COVID-19
Presented by Carter Osborne, Owner, Carter Osborne Tutoring

Change is the defining characteristic of today's college admissions system, and application essays are no exception. New cliches have emerged, old ones have become fresh again, and nuances in essay content have never had more influence on admission decisions. In this session, we'll discuss high-level strategies to produce gripping college essays, then narrow down on the biggest topic of the decade: COVID-19. How can students write unique stories about something that affects the entire world? How can counselors support students with emotional and heavy content?

 

 

Transfer Credit Reviews - Empowering Transfer Students through Transparency
Presented by Cody Singer, Enrollment Development Coordinator, Eastern Oregon University

This session presents how Eastern Oregon University increased transfer student/non-traditional student matriculating +7% through the implementation of a pre-application Transfer Credit Review and how other schools can implement a similar process for pre-evaluation of transcripts.

 

How to Pay for College with Grants & Scholarships
Presented by Charlie Maynard, Cofounder & CEO at Going Merry

Planning how you’ll pay for college is confusing and overwhelming... it’s hard to even know what the real costs are! In this session, we’ll show how students can find total costs of attendance, estimate their financial aid from the government and the college, and then apply for scholarships to cover their remaining financial need. In addition, we’ll show how students can complete their FAFSA and state aid applications too.

 

The New Normal: Connecting During this Time of Sweats, Zoom, and Quarantinis
Presented by Courtney Best, Gettysburg College, regionally based in Vancouver WA; David Chehey, Boise High School, College & Career Counselor; Claire Nold-Glaser, College Planning Help, Independent Counselor

WFH is where it's at for the time being, as are discouraging newscasts and social media posts that cause us to worry. We are all in uncharted territory and people are looking to us for guidance and reassurance. Are you a school counselor now at home? A college admission counselor who is used to going into the office every day? A regionally-based admission rep who is thinking "welcome to my world?" An IEC who has previously conducted all of your meetings in-person? A CBO worker whose school or office is now closed? Explore best practices for working from home and learn/experience/share some essential self-care techniques.
