  • College Admissions Tips (from Admitted UChicago Student)

10:30 PM - 11:30 PM

Hey guys, I was recently accepted to UChicago's Class of 2028. So, I want to chat with you guys about the college admissions process. I want this to be a session where we can just relax and talk about the process as friends but at the same time we are learning together. Join if you want to chat and learn about the best ways to optimize the college admissions process.

Feel free to come with any regular and out-of-the-box questions. I'll answer them as you ask consecutively. Looking forward to seeing everyone! (The max learners count is temporary.)

PS: If any other admitted UChicago students want to co-host, feel free to DM me on Schoolhouse.
