How to Build Relationships with Admissions Officers

admissions officers Apr 09, 2018

Greetings!

I'm writing to invite you to join me for my next free training webinar How To Build Relationships with Admissions Officers.

I'm hosting this webinar because most college applicants are too fearful and tentative to approach admissions officers and college personnel. But if you don't approach these people, you will miss a critical opportunity to stand out to your top college. 

Think about it, and pretend that you're an admissions officer. You have two applicants with relatively similar profiles of GPA, test scores, and extracurriculars. You can only admit one of these two students; there's simply not room for both.

Who do you think you would be more likely to admit? The student who you know personally and like, or the student who has no obvious connection to the university beyond what's written in the essays? 

You guessed it: As the admissions officer, when you know someone outside of the application, you are more likely to advocate for them and favor them, all things equal. So the candidate with the relationship gets the spot. 

You might be surprised to learn that you don't have to be a legacy or give a donation to begin establishing a relationship with admissions officers. You can use simple and effective networking techniques to establish a presence and build relationships. 

I've seen relationship building work when I was in the committee, and I've seen my students do build relationships effectively to their benefit. 

 

If you have been hoping to find that edge that will help you stand out, you won't want to miss this free training. In this webinar, you will:

  • Learn strategies that you can use to make a positive impression on the admissions committee  (and what to avoid!)
  • Discover how to identify the right contacts at any college (and the best timing to reach out).
  • Implement a plan for outreach (and learn what to do when you don't hear back).


If you'd like to join me for this free training, go here to sign up.

Time: Thursday, April 26 at 8:00 PM- 9:00 PM EDT

Can’t wait to see you there!
