Guiding Students through a thoughtful College List: session at IACAC 2017

For many international students applying to U.S. universities, rankings and reputation can take on an outsized role when crafting a final college list. This is often a detriment not only to the student’s success in the application process, but also their sense of purpose. This session helped counselors cut through overly influential factors and build lists based not on prestige or marketing, but the student’s personal needs and goals. 

Presenters for this session are: 

  • Arun Ponnusamy, Collegewise
  • Marie Whalen, Whitworth University
  • Wendy Bigler, International School of Asia, Karuizawa

I'll be adding my takeaways soon.
