Special Speaker on US Admissions January 25th

SMUS-University-Counselling

Peter Van Buskirk, Author, Motivational Speaker, and Former Dean of Admission will be presenting on “ The Admission Game”, a lively interactive evening for:

Middle School Parents
Senior School Faculty, Staff, Students and Parents

Wednesday – January 25, 2012 – 6:30 – 8:30 PM Copeland Lecture Theatre/Crothall.
Please register for this event.

By transforming the audience into an admission committee at a mythical college, Peter reveals the seemingly capricious “back room” logic that often determines who is accepted and who is rejected at US colleges every year. During this interactive session he provides insight and instruction regarding course selections, essay preparation and the role of standardized tests.

The College Planning Quiz™ will prepare participants to get the most out of Peter’s presentation. It’s a fun exercise that tests students’ preparedness to navigate the college planning process. Students are strongly encouraged (and teachers and parents!) to take the Quiz on the website, http://www.theadmissiongame.com/college-planning-quiz.php, prior to the presentation.

Peter is the Creator of the Best College Fit™
