with Dan Harrop

Explore the many advantages of using a rating system to help you determine your most desirable applicants, including a detailed point scoring system.

Learn how admission officers score each of their files based on what the school values most—transcript, SSAT score, interview, student essay, extracurricular activities, athletics, community service, impressions of the family, etc.—and discuss how these ratings drive more effective admission committee conversations.

Dan will present a sample point guideline and provide you with an understanding of the many pros and few cons of using such a system.
