Social Science Research
This is the second session of the research series. We'll be going a little more in-depth into the field of Social Science Research. I'll be leading this session as I'm a Master's student in an Economic Development department. I'll be introducing some social science-specific research skills, and I'll also be answering questions about the social sciences in general. We won't be going into subject-specific details, but we will cover essential skills in most areas of social science and hopefully get you ready to start your own project or to apply to extracurricular research programs.

Today, we will be going through how to choose a topic for your college essay and edit any essays that you have already written. We can also go over any questions you have about activities, awards, grades, and AP tests, or picking a balanced school list. As someone who just went through the college application process and is attending a T20 program, I know the information you need to stand out and get into top schools.
