The Hebrew Academy of Nassau County welcomed representatives from eight prestigious colleges and universities to its third biennial college panel and min-fair for high school students and their parents. Organized by Director of College Guidance Karen Sheff and Assistant Director of College Guidance Marisa Gelb, the event provided attendees with critical information.
Participants — from Brandeis University, Cooper Union, Hofstra University, Queens College, SUNY Albany, SUNY Binghamton, Touro’s Lander Colleges, and Yeshiva University — answered questions about the selection process for admission to their institution.
Panel members provided insightful information about academic and standardized test requirements, appropriate high school course loads, and which components of the application their institution focuses on during the admission’s process.
The panel also discussed Jewish life on campus and the variety of opportunities available to students at the various schools.
