While here, we attended sessions about various admission topics and greatest methods, such as just how to provide an effective senior high school see, what forms of technology might be useful in the recruitment procedure, and exactly how to read university essays while paying attention of our own personal biases (positive or negative). The conference additionally provided us a chance to get in touch with our colleagues from various parts of the national country, including many of your high school counselors. It was a great opportunity to share our own knowledge and expertise and learn from one another. Perhaps the most seasoned admission counselors on our staff discovered one thing new at the conference!
