Additional Opportunities for Demonstrated Interest!

While not all colleges and universities make it on to the Wilson campus, many are hosting events in Southern California.  Attending events is just one way you can show "demonstrated interest".  (What does that mean? Demonstrated interest is one of the admissions criteria used by many competitive colleges.  The term refers to ways that an applicant shows he or she is serious about enrolling at a given college. An applicant who calls with questions about a particular program is more valued than one who doesn't communicate beyond applying. An applicant who visits shows more demonstrated interest than one who doesn't, and so forth. Many colleges factor in demonstrated interest to admissions and aid decisions, wanting to admit applicants who will enroll. The idea is to have better planning and to improve the yield, the percentage of admitted applicants who enroll.)  Here is just a sample that we have received information on, check your prospective school website for other options!
