Date & Time
Friday, September 20, 2024, 10:15 AM
Join us for an engaging and insightful presentation where we delve into the intricacies of evaluating prospective applicants in the independent school world. This session aims to explore the nuanced decision-making process behind considering, assessing, and ultimately determining whether to take a risk on an applicant. Drawing from real-life case studies from our schools, our panel of seasoned admissions professionals will lead a comprehensive discussion. We'll examine scenarios where applicants do not fit the conventional criteria for admission, invite the audience to 'evaluate' each applicant, and discuss how to navigate these situations with the admission committee, the prospective family, colleagues and partners. Attendees will walk away with actionable insights and frameworks to critically evaluate prospective candidates, fostering an environment that values innovation, diversity, and potential while maintaining institutional integrity.
