Admissions Game

The Admission Game, hosted by outside speaker Peter Van Buskirk, is an interactive program during which the audience (students and their families) is transformed into the college admissions panel at a highly competitive university.

The audience is then asked to evaluate student applications based upon a larger discussion of the factors considered by a college admissions panel. The presentation also explores the importance of selecting an appropriate college, how to do so, and how a student may increase their chances of acceptance.

The objective of the game is to add a different dimension to the post-secondary planning process for students, increase their understanding of the college admissions process, and provide them with helpful hints and insights as they plan for their futures.
