Getting In: A College Coach Conversation

Thursday at 1 PM Pacific

May 14th 2020: Pass/Fail & Ideas for Med School Hopefuls & Paying for College

With schools closing and COVID-19 impacting high school instruction across the country and world, some secondary schools are moving to a pass/fail grading scale for the second half of the year. We will discuss the impact of that change when it comes time to apply to college. We’ll also offer suggestions for activities med school (and other health science) hopefuls can work on while they are stuck at home. Finally, we’ll discuss different ways to fund your college choice beyond the financial aid award.
