Join our panel of experts as we discuss how COVID-19 is impacting the college search and admission process for the Classes of 2021 and beyond.

 

Rick Clark, Director of Undergraduate Admission at Georgia Institute of Technology; Carol Lee Conchar, Regional Director of Admissions at George Washington University; and Ginger Fay, former Senior Admissions Officer at Duke University will discuss topics such as:

  • As standardized test dates are postponed, will institutions place greater weight on grade point average (GPA) and strength of schedule? What other factors may have increased weight?

  • As high schools remain closed and learning moves online, how will students' grades from this year be perceived?

  • With campus closures limiting students' ability to visit colleges and participate in events, how can students demonstrate interest and learn which school is best for them?
