Bergen County Library officials announced they are offering a Zoom presentation on navigating college admissions.

Officials say on October 25th at 7 p.m.,  Ron Feuchs and Jackie Tepper, partners at Stand Out For College, LLC, are offering and will lead this Zoom presentation.

The presentation is to inform and help families understand how COVID-19 has changed the college admissions landscape and how it affects Juniors, Sophomores, and Freshmen.

The recent college admissions cycle was the most competitive to date.

With most colleges continuing their test-optional policies and increasing their virtual outreach to high school students, many schools had record numbers of applicants.

Record high numbers of applications result in low acceptance rates, which is what most popular colleges and universities experienced this past admissions cycle.

They will discuss current college admissions trends and the importance of researching and visiting colleges to find schools that can be a good fit for your child.

As well as a timeline and other action steps that can be taken to make this school year productive and help reduce the stress around the college admissions process.

They'll examine the holistic admissions review process, what admissions officers consider essential when they review applicants, and how students can position themselves to develop a compelling narrative to increase their chances for admission.

They will also discuss the importance of community service, how it can provide an opportunity for personal growth, and a way to showcase a student's character. Admissions officers emphasize a student's character and how the student has been able.
