Admissions Q & A Session

Admissions Q & A Session

About the Program

Do you have questions about college admissions? Come and talk with Nancy Griesemer, a local author and co-author of Admission Matters. She will be at the Oakton Library to introduce her book and answer your questions about the college admissions process.

This program will be very interactive, not just a lecture. We will have a raffle for free copies of Admission Matters and The Princeton Review Best 389 Colleges of 2024! There will be an introduction from Admission Matters  and then the floor will open for questions from attendees. Come to learn more about how to prepare yourself or your teen for applying for college.
