Class of 2019
Colleges are rethinking the admissions process - check out this report from Harvard University which offers recommendations on how colleges will
√ Assess students’ ethical engagement and contributions to others in ways that reflect varying types of family and community contributions across race, culture and class.
√ Promote more meaningful contributions to others,
community service and engagement with the public good.
√ Redefine achievement in ways that both level the playing field
for economically diverse students and reduce excessive achievement pressure.
The PSAT/NMSQT Exam results should come in mid-December, see Susy to talk about your scores.
