College Admissions 101


If you have a child who is applying to college soon, whether to MIT or elsewhere, Dean of Admissions Stu Schmill will give you a picture of the current college admissions landscape and offer some advice as you go through the process.

The college admissions process can seem quite opaque, especially if you haven’t gone through it in the last few years. Dean Schmill will offer tips on helping your child navigate the college search process, insight as to how college admissions offices make admissions decisions, and will also offer specific insight as to what to expect if your son or daughter is applying to MIT. Anyone with a child in high school will find this session useful, regardless of his or her college plans.

The session is open to all MIT faculty and staff, and will be held on Wednesday, October 12, from 12:00 – 1:00 in Room 1-190.

Please contact Paulina Baltazar at or 617-258-5514 to register or with questions.
