Fall College Information Sessions

Many colleges around the country (and even international schools!) send their admissions representatives to visit the Los Angeles area in the fall.  Additionally, many colleges keep track of students who attend information sessions, visit campus, or meet their admissions counselors at college fairs.  This is an opportunity for you to demonstrate your interest in these colleges – and sometimes they give you a few extra “brownie points” in the admissions process if you show your interest this way.

Below is a list of some college information sessions that will take place in the LA area over the next few months.  Register in advance, sign in when you arrive and ask smart questions (ie not questions whose answers can be found on the colleges’ websites!)!  Seniors – it’s not too late to show your interest!   Sophomores and juniors, this is a great opportunity for you to learn more about colleges you may not have the opportunity to visit to see if they could be a good fit for you.
