Highly Selective Colleges (education)

Greetings from the Columbia University and Yale University Offices of Undergraduate Admissions! We invite you to join us for a special series of virtual chats to learn about selective college admissions and affordability.

Jessica Cho, Assistant Director and Native American Outreach Coordinator at Columbia, and Bowen Posner, Associate Director of Admissions and Coordinator of Native American Outreach at Yale, will offer two virtual chats to cover topics that we know are of concern for families and educators. You can tune into these chats from anywhere as long as you have an internet connection, and we will offer the chance to pose questions before and during the chat!

Over the next few weeks, we will be discussing the following topics:

Highly Selective AdmissionsTuesday, October 15th at 9:00pm EST: Registration Form
What does “highly selective admissions” mean? What do highly selective colleges look for in applicants? How do I best prepare myself or my students for the admission process?

Financial AidTuesday, October 29 at 9:00pm EST: Registration Form
How does one afford a college education? What resources are available to offset the cost? What does the financial aid application process entail?

Please RSVP for the session(s) that most interest you, and and we encourage you to pose any pressing questions in advance on the registration form. We hope the academic year is off to a great start and look forward to the opportunity to speak and work with you over the upcoming weeks.


Jessica Cho and Bowen Posner
