College Talks October: Strategizing Early Action and Early Decision (online)

October 7 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm JST

Based on last year’s admissions data, applying Early Decision can boost your chances of admission by up to 30%. While this number varies across schools, there is no doubt that applying early can have a significant impact on your chances of getting in. However, the binding nature of early decision can often make it difficult to figure out the right strategy, especially with admissions as competitive as it is currently. In this special talk, Tyler Kusunoki will share best practices when it comes to formulating an early application strategy. With the early application deadline of November 1st coming up quickly, it will be more important than ever to make sure your plan is a sound one. This talk will include advice on how to:

  • Build your college list strategically in terms of Restrictive Early Action, Early Action, Early Decision, Early Decision II, and Regular Decision.
  • Decide between “shooting your shot” at a big reach school or securing a spot at a target.
  • Explore some of the current loopholes in application requirements to maximize your admissions chances.

When:  October 7th @6:00pm JST

Who: Senior Admissions Consultant Tyler Kusunoki, an admissions expert with over 15 years of experience
