College Admissions during the COVID-19 crisis

In an interview with ABC7's Kristen Sze, Dean of College and Gap-Year Advising Lauren Cook gave her thoughts on college admissions during these unusual times.

"I do think there's some families that have an impulse to ask, 'What can I do right now that would look good?'" said Cook. "I would always encourage people to think about it from the other point of view. Think about being the most 'you' that you can be. What makes you happy? What do you get excited about? That will make admissions officers excited, too."
