The Harvard Ed Portal is proud to offer a free College Application: Getting Started & Finishing Strong Workshop for high school students who live or attend school in Allston-Brighton or Cambridge. For freshmen and sophomores: get familiarized with college application vocabulary! And for juniors and seniors: learn how to strengthen your college application activities section with strong vocabulary. Through one application, students can apply to the more than 700 colleges and universities across the country that accept the Common Application. It is never too early to start to understand the vocabulary that will be used throughout the application!
Students will have an opportunity to talk and ask questions of current undergraduate students! Then, freshmen and sophomores will learn about the Common and Coalition Application before participating in an interactive college admissions and financial aid terminology activity. Juniors and seniors will receive individual feedback on how to strengthen their application and share their story, particularly in the activities list section of their application. Dinner will be provided at 5:30pm. The first 10 students to arrive will receive a free Harvard t-shirt!
