Q&A with College Admissions Officers

This year, BranchOut! was honored to host admissions officers from 14 different colleges and universities for two informative College Admissions Webinars. Most recently, admissions officers from Stanford, MIT, Rice, Penn, Carnegie Mellon, Johns Hopkins, and Dartmouth joined us on September 26th, 2023.


A testament to the wealth of knowledge each of these admissions officers possesses, they were able to answer over 50 audience questions! These questions included topics ranging from pre-college programs and essays to financial aid and major selection. While we cannot provide every piece of information shared during the live event, we have created some infographics to highlight key questions our audience members were wondering.


Take a look below at the answers compiled from the expert advice we heard during the webinar!
