The Deans of Admission of these Eight of the Best colleges invite you and your family to a reception held in select cities in the United States every spring and fall. Each college has something distinctive to offer. As a group, they place great value on student-faculty interaction, small classes, and challenging curricula. These colleges send a high percentage of graduates on to graduate and professional schools, and count among their alumnae/i leaders in virtually every field. This free program includes presentations on admission, financial aid, each of the eight colleges, as well as time to speak with the deans individually. There is also ample opportunity to ask questions.
