IACAC Session: Extra Elements to the College Essay

In the current landscape, many admission offices have begun introducing extra elements to the review process to supplement the more traditional metrics of an application in hopes of truly achieving a holistic review. In this session, presenters looked at how several institutions are considering these non-traditional pieces of an application—like interviews, online profiles, face-to-face or virtual interactions, etc. 

Presenters of the session were: 

  • Sara Riggs, Georgia Institute of Technology
  • Nora Colman, Tulane University
  • Hebe Fuller, Elon University

I'll be adding takeaways from the session in the comments section soon.
