Solving the Early Application Puzzle

Students work closely with their college admissions team to decide where and how to apply to college. Equally important in this process is when. This webinar, led by Bespoke college admissions experts Antoine Hart and Sarah Hartmann, will explain how best to time applications, from Early Decision to rolling admissions. Antoine and Sarah will address frequently asked questions such as:

  • When is the best time to apply to a “reach” school or a “target” school? 
  • What are the differences between Early Decision, Early Action, Restrictive Early Action, and Rolling Admissions? 
  • How many schools should you apply to early and regular? 
  • What role do SAT & ACT scores currently play? 
  • When should you finish your personal statement? 
  • How much should you change your supplemental essays for each college?
  • When should you begin to practice interviewing?

Fostering a Growth Mindset: A Key to Academic Success

Are your intelligence and math ability set in stone, or are they malleable? Are your traits fixed, or can they grow and change? Or something in between? Where we fall on this spectrum influences many aspects of our life experience, from how we respond to difficulty, to our willingness to pursue challenges, to even our ability to learn. Join Bespoke COO Dan Cozzens in conversation with Ariel Finch Bernstein, PhD in Social-Organizational Psychology and Bespoke GRE & GMAT Test Prep Expert, for a presentation and discussion of the research around and practical applications of adopting a Growth Mindset instead of a Fixed one.

In this webinar, we will explore the ways in which mindsets affect how our tutors and students confront adversity and change, deal with setbacks and disappointments, and reach goals both in their academic and personal lives.
