College Case Study Offers Behind-The-Scenes Look At Admissions Process For High School Students

Mar 16, 2016

The college admissions process can be confounding and nerve-wracking. What if an admissions counselor could take you behind the scenes, reviewing mock applications right in front of you? Next Monday, twelve schools are doing just that at the New Orleans College Case Study.

Case studies usually happen at private schools, and are only open to private school students. But this program targets first generation, low income and students of color from all over New Orleans. It's co-hosted by Ed Graf and Sheena Reed, Directors of College Counseling at Isidore Newman School and Sci Academy, respectively.

They sat down with WWNO's Mallory Falk to discuss the program, which features elite schools like Princeton, Bowdoin and Duke.
