Junior College Night 2017

On Wednesday, May 10th, over thirty college representatives joined the junior class and their parents at Yeshivah of Flatbush Joel Braverman High School for an informative and interactive program. The first portion of the evening began with a panel of five schools, each of whom presented helpful tips about applying to college and what colleges are looking for. Some of the topics covered included college essays, visiting campuses, testing, and letters of recommendation. Panelists also delved into the nuances of the college process, enabling students and parents to gain a better sense of what to expect next year.
After the panel, families went to the gym where they had individual conversations with the admissions reps from 30+ colleges. Students and parents were able to make a personal connection and obtain contact information for many of the people who will be reading their applications.
The College Night and Fair allow families to take a significant step toward finding the right college for each unique student. During the college fair, students asked questions specific to their needs and interests. As they learned more about the offerings at particular schools, their college list expanded to include ones they hadn’t been considering previously. At the conclusion of the evening, students and parents agreed that the program surpassed their expectations and was extremely valuable and worthwhile.
