Everything You Wanted to Know About Extracurriculars and College Applications During COVID-19
Join Summer Discovery and Collegewise for an informative webinar, Everything You Wanted to Know About Extracurriculars and College Applications During COVID-19. Many clubs, competitions, and sports activities have been cancelled due to COVID-19. What does this mean for students and for their college prospects?
We’re excited to unpack this topic with Collegewise Counselor Patti Miller. Patti is a Yale and Wharton MBA alumna. She has a keen understanding of how extracurriculars influence and impact the college application process. She’ll share her tips, insights, and thoughts about how students can pivot to make the most of the their time despite COVID challenges. Summer Discovery will also share some their new virtual club opportunities for students seeking virtual extracurriculars!
Guest Speaker Bio
As a Yale alumna, she served as an interviewer for prospective students, and while earning her MBA from The Wharton School, she helped students as an admission office application evaluator. Not stopping there, she earned certification in college counseling from UCLA, and then served as an intern college counselor to high school students in the Roslyn Union Free School District.
No matter the role, Patti is a consummate professional, self-proclaimed lifelong learner, and always goes the extra mile. In her past, entrepreneurial life as a management consultant for McKinsey & Company, as the owner of a consulting business for startups, and more recently, as the director of marketing for a professional training and coaching company, one thing is clear: Patti values the process of learning and growing from experiences—which gives an “above-and-beyond” edge to her students and families navigating the college admissions process.
