VTH FORM PARENTS’ COLLEGE WORKSHOP

On the evening of Friday, February 10th, and morning/afternoon of Saturday, February 11th, the College Counseling Office will hold our annual 5th Form Parents’ College Workshop. This year we are welcoming four highly accomplished admissions representatives:

  • Grace Chapin, Associate Director of Admissions, University of Chicago
  • Nate Crozier, Director of Admission, University of Richmond
  • Bill Jack, Associate Dean of Admission and Financial Aid, Wesleyan University
  • Sally Lindsley, Senior Associate Dean of Admissions, University of Michigan

Our guests will discuss the current landscape of competitive college admissions, lead a mock admissions committee session, provide workshops on financial aid and athletic recruitment, and offer time for Q&A.

Below you will find all the information you need to know about the workshop:

  • How to RSVP
  • Schedule of the Program
  • Documents to Participate in the Mock Admissions Committee Session
  • Locations of the Program

(Over the past several years, parents have found the mock admissions committee process to be quite insightful and very helpful.  However, this exercise is only meaningful if you read the “applications” in advance.  Since each application (there are four of them) is about 20 pages long, we would love it if you could read them online, or download them to a mobile device.  You can access the instructions for the “admissions committee” and the four “applications” below.)
