IvyWise Live: A Look Back on the 2020-2021 Admissions Cycle
The 2020-2021 college admissions cycle was highly impacted by COVID-19, with many colleges across the US reporting overwhelming increases in application numbers and historically low acceptance rates. But what does this mean for current high school students as they look ahead to the college application process?

Join the newest members of IvyWise’s team, directly from Johns Hopkins University’s and Stanford University’s admissions offices, as they review the 2020-21 college admissions cycle, including how COVID-19 and test-optional policies impacted students’ college prep and the number of college applications, and offer their predictions for future admissions cycles. Attendees will learn how to best understand the evolving admissions landscape and how they can prepare for the 2021-2022 admissions cycle and beyond.

There will be a live Q&A session following the presentation, allowing attendees to have their personal questions about the 2020-2021 admissions cycle answered directly by IvyWise experts. Attendees are highly encouraged to submit their questions when registering below. We will provide all registrants with a link to a recording of the webinar after the event.
