The strongest college applications have a few things in common.

Admissions criteria at the most competitive universities have drastically evolved beyond strong grades and well-rounded extracurriculars; now, in addition to these fundamentals, admissions officers look for a longer list of qualifications — many of which can seem elusive and obscure.

Join this webinar to hear from Daniel Chung, a Former Stanford Admissions Officer, about 10 specific things top colleges look for in successful applications, including:

  • A strategic approach to your academics
  • Impactful extracurriculars
  • Leadership qualities and community engagement
  • A compelling personal narrative
  • A theme woven into your application
  • And more!

Daniel will also answer all your questions in a LIVE Q&A at the end!
