How should high school juniors and seniors approach the college application process during Covid-19? The tough decision-making process families face every year has only gotten harder during the pandemic. Eric Furda, Dean of Admissions at the University of Pennsylvania, and Jacques Steinberg, former New York Times education reporter, and authors of The College Conversation: A Practical Companion for Parents to Guide their Children Along the Path to Higher Education , join MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle to share their credible, level-headed information, experience and advice. They’ll cover essential topics like selecting schools to apply to, the application process, essay writing, early versus regular decision-making, as well as questions that are gaining increased focus during the pandemic such as whether taking a gap year will enhance or negatively impact a student’s admission, finances, grants and scholarships, and more. Advanced registration required.
