Yesterday, our team was thrilled to launch of the Cortex Workshop Series, where our founders and coaches host informational events covering a wide range of topics relating to academics, extracurricular activities, college application strategies, effective study habits, and more.
Our first workshop, Five Essential College Applications Planning Strategies, was presented by Amy, James, and Daniel, the founders of Cortex.
In this workshop, some of the main points we covered include:
- Effectively choosing extracurricular activities: what makes an excellent activity?
- Choosing meaningful, powerful essay topics to write about
- Creating activity/experience outlines to produce impactful, self-reflective essays.
