Case Studies Program Opens New Doors

The JSerra Counseling Department hosted its first annual Case Studies Program where the roles were flipped to allow students and parents to experience what it would be like to be an admissions counselor.

Students and parents were broken up into small groups with college representatives from across the country to make admissions decisions on four students. Students and parents received an insider’s view on the admissions process and what they consider when admitting and denying students.

“We all agreed it was a great program and a very worthwhile evening for all of us. The case study exercise, the summary slide presentation, and the opportunity to talk to the various college representatives were interesting and useful in educating us about the application process and the colleges them selves,” one parent stated.

“My children went away with two new colleges added to their list of potential colleges that were not previously under consideration. Thank you for providing such opportunities for us to learn more about how to help our children succeed in getting into the school(s) of their choice.”

Stay tuned for the next Case Studies Program in Spring 2013.
