In this edition of the College Experts Talk Podcast, Felicia Gopaul, meets with Jacqueline Wisner, Alumni Recruiter for Brown University to discuss the merits of talking with an alumni recruiter and how students should to put their best foot forward.
For students who are applying to a competitive college like Brown, Jacqueline discusses how talking with an alumni recruiter can be an opportunity to learn more about the college of your choice and provide an expanded view of yourself as a admissions candidate. But it is not without perils, because the opinions of your recruiter are part of the information that is shared with the admissions committee and is a factor in admissions decisions.
Listen in and learn from Felicia and Jacqueline as they talk about the benefits of talking with an Alumni Recruiter which include:
– Getting the opinion from a former student of your college of interest
– Gaining an opportunity to share an aspect of your life not reflected in the formal college application
– Learning more about your college choice especially if you weren’t able to visit the college on your own
– Letting the college know you are seriously interested in attending their university – ie. demonstrated interest
If you are considering meeting with an alumni recruiter – whether at an elite school like Brown University or any other college of your choice, you won’t want to miss this edition of the College Experts Talk.
