WOW! What an amazing time our DP students had interacting with college admissions staff from around the world who only wanted to speak with current UWC students. It was such a wonderful sight to see our students engaging with institutions in meaningful ways that we do not typically have a chance to host on our campus. The comments from students about the conversations they had, and the questions they posed left me thrilled about the possibilities that exist as the D2s begin applying and the D1s now see a plethora of new institutions to consider for their next academic home. This is such an important time for our students seeking to glean a better understanding of their options, and to have this level of access was an absolute must at this critical time in the postsecondary planning process.
For those families who missed (want to relisten to) the D2 Parent Presentation on the 2022-2023 Application Cycle that was presented on 22 September, please feel free to access the video via this link: https://bit.ly/3CkBxyE. Also during the presentation we referenced a number of links that you can access via this document: https://bit.ly/3SpIPH2
