Upcoming Webinars: AdmitSee Live!

November 28, 2016

If you haven’t caught wind of AdmitSee’s newest addition, then you’re missing out! To bring you closer to your dream school, we’ve officially launched AdmitSee Live: a student-hosted webinar series.

Our webinars are completely free for everyone and requires no new software to download. They are all hosted on YouTube live, by current college students on our platform! You can pre-submit any questions you have, or submit them during the live webinar.

Here’s the upcoming webinar schedule: 

Saturday, 12/17 at 10:00AM PST *Final webinar!*

I was deferred. What now? Tips for deferred candidates.

Getting rejected from your dream college can really really hurt, especially if you were holding out for that one school. But getting deferred from your dream college can be almost as bad. It’s tough to grapple with being in a state of limbo.

So what can you do now that the school has told you “eh maybe”? Should you send in updated test scores, ask for additional letters of recommendations, publish a book? Our student mentors share how they handled their deferrals and what they did and even what they would’ve done differently.
