75 Admissions Representatives, as well as Deans and Directors of Admission from 62 colleges and universities virtually attended the event, while seniors sat socially distanced with laptops in the gymnasium.
The Class of 2021 at La Salle College High School participated in a Virtual College Interview Day on Tuesday, October 6, 2020. La Salle will be one of the few high schools in the nation to hold an event of this kind during this college admissions season.
75 Admissions Representatives, as well as Deans and Directors of Admission from 62 varied colleges and universities virtually attended the event, while seniors sat socially distanced with laptops in the gymnasium. A wide range of colleges including local private colleges, Pennsylvania state-related universities, nationally ranked Catholic colleges, public research universities, and highly selective liberal arts colleges, were in attendance. Colleges in attendance came from far and wide including a broad geographic array of states including Colorado, Texas, Indiana, Massachusetts, and Florida.
The Class of 2021 was scheduled for a total of 627 individual Zoom interviews with the colleges of their choice. In the exchange, seniors presented their transcripts, had the opportunity to provide additional personal information, asked questions about the colleges and universities, and received realistic feedback on their chances of admission. The College Representatives benefitted from getting to know the applicants and La Salle College High School beyond the applications, transcripts, and high school profile. As in years past, many of the College Representatives commented on the value of the day and remarked glowingly on how the young men of La Salle presented themselves and how well-prepared they were.
Besides the Virtual College Interview Day, La Salle will continue to host colleges and universities for virtual daily visits through early November. La Salle is expected to host over 110 colleges and universities this year. Students are encouraged to sign up for these visits in Scoir.
