Wellington College and Good Schools Guide are delighted to host our 9th Annual Applying to University in the USA ConferenceThis is a must-attend event for any school with students interested in applying to the United States, with experts and admissions officers from top American universities giving behind closed-doors information on every angle of the process.

In a departure from previous years, this year’s conference will be structured into a full day for advisors new to the US process, and half day for experts. Wellington parents are most welcome to attend the conference.

  • Morning sessions will cover the absolute basics for the complete application process and the US university system, but will be aimed at advisors who have little or no experience with the US system. Experienced advisors are welcome, but are not to expect an advanced perspective. This is Admissions 101.
  • Afternoon sessions will look in detail at SATs/ACTs, financial aid, reference letters, essays – useful whether experienced or beginner; beginners are welcome
    but should expect the sessions to be aimed at long-time counsellors who are experts in this area.

Who should attend:
School advisors and career guidance counsellors, Directors of Studies, Year 12 Tutors and Heads of 5th and 6th form; any other school representative helping a student navigate the US admissions process. We welcome both beginners and experts in the field.

Speakers will include admissions representatives from Harvard, Bowdoin, University of Southern California, Brown, Columbia, Swarthmore and Yale, as well as experts working in US admissions, testing and financial aid: AJ Nemecek Education, ACS Cobham International School, A-List, Highgate School, College Prospects of America (sports scholarships)
