Hanna and Cari

Elizabeth, an upcoming high school senior, discusses the college admissions process.  She is looking at applying to Connecticut College, UCONN, Wesleyan, and Dickinson, among others.  She is applying early-decision to one school, and for the other schools, she is applying early action or regular decision.  Most schools have gone test optional due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so they are not requiring SAT or ACT scores, but she says that without taking the tests, it's harder to get accepted.  Elizabeth describes the interview process and touring colleges during the COVID-19 pandemic.  She recommends going into the admissions process with a positive attitude,  to plan ahead, and to be organized as it will help reduce the stress of the admissions process.
