Highly Selective College Admissions

Tuesday, January 26, 2016 - 7:00pm

The Westborough Public Library presents, “Highly Selective College Admissions” by Meg Mahoney, from Collegewise, on Tuesday, Jan. 26, 2016 at 7 p.m. Registration is required.

Grades, test scores, and impressive activities alone won’t get a student admitted to schools that reject almost all of their applicants.  So how do students who get accepted to the Ivy Leagues, Stanford, Northwestern, and the rest of the nation’s most selective colleges set themselves apart from the rest of the applicant pool? Meg will show you how. She’ll also reveal some Collegewise strategies to improve a student’s chances of admission at the most selective schools. Students who are interested in these schools will get straight answers about what it will really take to have a shot at getting in.

Meg Mahoney is an Assistant College Counselor at Collegewise in Newton. Meg earned a Master’s in school guidance counseling from UMass Boston and has certification in college counseling from UCLA and is a licensed school counselor in Massachusetts. She has also served as an application reader for Bentley University.

This program is free and open to the public. Register online at or call the library at 508-366-3050 to register.
