** Three Ways to Improve Your Admissions Chances - River of Life Foundation + ILUMIN Ed

// How important are grades and test scores?
// Which activities matter most to admissions officers?
// How do students find good leadership opportunities?
// What can students do NOW to help them reach their dream colleges?

Come to our upcoming seminar hosted in partnership with the River of Life Foundation!


The college admissions process is growing more confusing and competitive every year. We all feel the pressure to achieve "more" and worry that we're not doing enough. 

But what really matters when admissions officers review an application? What activities should students do and NOT do during high school? What steps can students take to help them reach the dream colleges? 

We will discuss how every student can improve their admissions chances, whether their goal is Stanford or UC San Diego. We will discuss how students can discover their passion and build on it throughout high school. And we will also share how students (and parents) can navigate this stressful season and be their best.
