UES Mock Admissions Event 2022

Monday 21st March, 5-8pm UK time
This is our major annual event for students, attended by over 100 students, parents and teachers. It is completely free for students, and is also open to parents and teachers.

This interactive, fun evening is aimed at students thinking of applying to the US, their parents, and any teachers or school counsellors who deal with US applications. It will involve 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 allows 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.

In this webinar, Katie Chaszczewski (Deputy Director of Admissions & Director of Undergraduate Outreach at U Chicago), Simon Lewis (Head of International Applications at Latymer Upper School) and Jason Smith (Founder of UES) discuss what it takes to get into the the world's top colleges, why so many extremely good students are rejected, and what students, parents and teachers can do to help.
