College Admissions Counselors Visiting YOF
College Admission Officers will continue to visit YOF weekly for the remainder of October. Students will receive a weekly email letting them know which colleges are visiting each week and how to sign up. To date, we have welcomed representatives from Macaulay Honors, Brandeis University, NYU, Boston University, University of Maryland and many, many more!
Parent Raves
If you haven't already, please take the time to complete a Parent Rave on behalf of your child. The College Guidance team will use this information to craft the best possible letter of recommendation for your son/daughter - the more information, the better!
If you have further questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us. We look forward to our work together this fall!
