On Tuesday, October 2, 2018, the Class of 2019 at La Salle College High School participated in the school's annual College Interview Day. Launched over 30 years ago, La Salle was the first, and remains one of the few, high schools in the nation that hosts an event of this kind.
Held in the gymnasium, Admissions Representatives, as well as Deans and Directors of Admission from varied colleges and universities attended the event. 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.
240 seniors were scheduled for individual appointments 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 Admission 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 annual College Interview Day, La Salle will continue to host colleges and universities for daily visits through mid-November. La Salle is expected to host close to 180 colleges and universities this year. Students are encouraged to sign up for these visits on Naviance.
