Mock US Admissions Event

UES Mock US Admissions Event

The last event was a huge success, attended by over 100 students, parents and teachers. The next one will take place on Monday 3rd February 2020 from 5 to 9pm. The event will be sponsored by and held at  University of  Notre Dame's London Global Gateway, 1 Suffolk Street, SW1Y 4HG (just off Trafalgar Square).

This event is aimed at students thinking of applying to the US, their parents, and any teachers or school counsellors who deal with US applications.

The event involves a mock admissions activity in small groups, where students and parents play the part of an admissions officer choosing between students applying to the different colleges. This will allow them to get a deep insight into how admissions officers make their decisions, which gives students a big advantage when it comes to making their US applications.

Senior admissions professionals at several leading US universities will be attending. Last year these included:

Don Bishop, Associate Vice President of Undergraduate Enrollment at The University of Notre Dame
Claire Wilkins, Associate Director of Global Admissions at NYU
John L. Mahoney, Vice Provost for Enrollment Management at Boston College
Brendan Graham, Senior Assistant Director of Admissions for International & Pathways Recruitment at Northeastern University
Ben Baum, Vice President of Enrollment at St John's College, Annapolis

For teachers, as well as completing the admissions task, the event includes Q&A sessions with the admissions officers of the attending colleges, and a networking event at the end.

Highlights include:

  • Chance to see what goes on in the mind of an admissions officer at a top US college
  • The opportunity to get feedback directly from admissions officers
  • An insight into how decisions are made, and what sort of students colleges are looking for
  • The chance to meet lots of other students applying to the US
  • A networking event for teachers and US college admissions officers.

Refreshments are provided. For teachers, this includes a hot, sit-down meal after the event.

The event is free for students, £10 for parents, and £45 + VAT for teachers. (30% discount for state schools using the code STATESECTOR.)
