If you’ve ever wondered what makes a great college application or what college admissions officers want to see from applicants, this episode of The College Checklist Podcast is for you! In this show, I’m joined by my friend Luke Lawson who’s served as an undergraduate admissions officer and in many other posts in higher education for the past 4 years.
Luke candidly shares what he wanted to see from applicants when he was a college admissions officer and helps us understand the differences between admissions in large and small institutions.
I hope this episode will help dispel some of the many myths that surround college admissions and help you understand how you can best forge connections with your college admissions officers on your path to college.
