Juniors! You are more than halfway done with college and may be starting to think about the next steps. “When will I apply? How should I prepare for my entrance exam? Do I need to do something different to enhance my qualifications? What will I do during my gap year(s)? Am I a competitive applicant?” This interactive workshop will be an opportunity to begin to address some of those questions through self-reflection and peer to peer conversation. A follow-up appointment with Katie Lipp, if you have not met this semester, is encouraged.
