How Do Colleges Really Choose Students? An Inside Look at the College Admissions Process

May 30 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us in the Community Room for this interactive presentation by Wendy Thompson of Westport Educational Consulting.

As the Assistant Dean of Admissions at Bowdoin College from 2000 to 2012, Wendy evaluated thousands of applications and conducted hundreds of interviews, and has an entertaining and informative method for illustrating just how many factors college admissions officers may consider when they look at application materials. She will offer great advice on how to put your best foot forward as you start the college search and application process.  Her presentation is oriented to inform families of high school sophomores and juniors, but all are welcome.

Joining Wendy at the presentation will be Mike Dutton of The Will to Play.  Mike is a long-time coach, educator and athletic administrator with 25 years of experience at both the college and high schools levels. He will be available to answer questions for those interested in learning more about colleges and athletic recruitment.

For more information, contact Roberta Jordan (rjordan@patten.lib.me.us), or by calling 443-5141, extension 25.
