Description

Join Amy Estersohn to learn about academic considerations specific to gifted/2E students, like the transition from home or high school to postsecondary education, and hear her highlight features of colleges that support gifted and 2E students.
This webinar will provide an overview of the college admissions, preparation, and planning process. Attention will be given to highly selective colleges/Ivy League schools, college planning timelines, criteria on finding a college, example college searches, and alternate opportunities.
Part 1. Selective colleges ask three questions: Can you be a successful student here? What qualities do you bring to our school? What qualities does our school have that you will benefit from and take advantage of?
Part 2. Common opportunities and challenges for gifted students. Gifted students often thrive in having focused interests that are needed by colleges, but can struggle in self-presentation.
Part 3. Conducting a thoughtful selection process via case studies and stories. Evidence across fields of success; looking for opportunities at small colleges and state universities; finding those 5 awesome people, wherever they are.
Part 4. Long-term enhancement of candidacy. Read, read deeply in a field, network, find local conferences and opportunities that relate to interests.
