Summary
The only college admissions advice and guide specifically for students graduating in 2021 and 2022. This book provides the latest info and recommendations for successfully navigating your application process during the global coronavirus pandemic. If my target school is test-optional, do I still need to take the SAT or ACT? What should I do if most of my extracurriculars were canceled due to lockdowns? Should I consider a gap year in the hopes that things will be more settled later? What should I expect if I have to take a standardized test (like the APs or ACT) from home? Is it even worth enrolling in college, if classes will all be remote? Students in the entering classes of 2021 and 2022 face a college admissions landscape unlike any before. The massive changes wrought by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic have upended once-standard admissions advice, with new questions like those above arising daily. Fortunately, Rob Franek, editor-in-chief at The Princeton Review and nationally-recognized college admissions expert, is here to help you fill in those gaps with straightforward, balanced information. COLLEGE ADMISSIONS DURING COVID (a new edition of our popular College Admissions 101, specifically updated with advice for the current situation) gathers together the 70+ questions that Rob is hearing most frequently from students and parents, and answers them with information garnered from deans, admissions officers, and his own 25+ years of expertise. Some things remain the same (yes, you should write an essay!), but others have changed (you may have to postpone that campus visit). No matter how crazy things seem, Rob and The Princeton Review are here to help guide you through this difficult time and set you up for college admission success!
