1:00 AM CUT


What makes the difference between the students who get accepted and those who don't?

Most applicants to prestigious universities have top-notch academics — but not all of them have outstanding extracurriculars. So how can you enhance your extracurricular profile to set yourself apart?

Join this webinar with Eileen, a Former UPenn Undergraduate Admissions Manager, to learn the ways to build outstanding extracurriculars — including:

  1. Capstone Projects
  2. Research
  3. Internships
  4. Community Service
  5. Talents/Interests (sports, music, etc.)

We’ll also share when and how to get started on your extracurriculars, the best types of activities to seek out, and how to present them flawlessly on the Common App.

Then, Eileen will answer all your specific questions in a LIVE Q&A!
