Welcome to our series designed to help teens develop life skills and knowledge to transition to adulthood. We will have presenters on many topics the first Tuesday of every month, and our Fall series will run September – December.
For our September program there will be a seminar presented by College Counselor, Liz Pack with Collegewise Austin.
This free seminar will help families separate college admissions fact from fiction and enjoy the college process a little more. Liz will discuss grades, test scores, activities, and everything else colleges evaluate. Attendees will get straight answers about what college admissions committees really look for and how they ultimately decide who gets in. Liz thinks teens and parents will be pleasantly surprised to learn that teens don’t have to be multilingual, opera-singing rocket scientists to get into college today!
This seminar welcomes attendance from teens AND parents.
Liz shares her bio with us, highlighting her career and experience:
After graduating from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Liz worked in the UNC Office of Undergraduate Admissions as an admissions counselor and fell in love with information sessions and providing advice about the college process. Looking for more experience in higher education, she traveled to UT Austin to complete her master’s degree in education and spent time as an admissions counselor in UT’s Office of Admissions.
Though she’s located in Austin, Liz is not just a UT Austin expert. While Collegewise Austin students are accepted at UT at five times the national admit rate, they also receive acceptances from universities all over the country! Our students have recently been admitted to the University of Virginia, Barnard, NYU, Rice, and Texas A&M.
