The recording will load in a moment.
About this livestream
Learn how to build a balanced school list that matches up with your interests and goals before you apply to colleges this fall.
There are more than 2,400 undergraduate colleges in the United States and narrowing that down to the final colleges that you will apply to is an incredibly important part of the college process. In this stream, Moriah will walk through the best methods for building your school list, covering topics such as the optimal length of your school list, how to research colleges and find good ones for your intended major, how to balance risk, how to think about ROI and student outcomes, and many additional topics.
We’ll also open up the floor for a Q&A session to answer any and all questions about building your college list and researching schools.
Undergrad College: Cornell University '21
Major: Policy Analysis & Management
Work Experience: Outside of mentoring students on CollegeVine, I’m interested in finance and it’s intersection with the fashion industry. I currently work in finance for an international consumer packaged goods company.
My Admissions Story: Throughout high school I was especially interested in math and science and focused my college applications on schools with good science and pre-med programs. When I got to college I took my first introductory chemistry class with an incredibly difficult professor (he is one of the AP Chemistry test writers every year). After that, I decided to switch gears and focus on public policy as another way that I could help people.
