Mock Application Night & Visit of St Andrews University

WEDNESDAY, September 12th,  we had our first Mock Application Night of the school year at Rochambeau.

Our panelists were:

Catholic University of America, Columbia University, University of Chicago, University of Maryland College Park, MICA (Maryland Institute College of Arts), and University of St. Andrews.

It was a successful night for our audience! We welcomed universities for a panel and held breakout sessions where parents and students became the admissions committee. Each family was assigned to a room with one of the university representatives from the institutions above, who walked them through the admission committee process as each group decided who of the three applicants they admitted, waitlisted and denied.

A Rochambeau parent: "This Mock application night was super fun and informative, thank you for organizing it. It was great to see the admissions 'from inside', so to speak, and specially at the end, with different decisions. As a parent, it was wonderful to be able to take away the insights on what exactly it is that colleges are looking for."


A Terminale student: "Dear Mrs Cole, Thank you so much for tonight's mock application night! I feel so grateful to be able to hear the various perspectives and understand the admission process. I really appreciate your constant enthusiasm and support during these last two years. It means a lot to know that there is a faculty at Rochambeau supporting me (and others) through the college process."

TUESDAY, September 11th,  we were pleased to be the local host school for the regional information session of University of St. Andrews, open to the public at Rochambeau. This event covered life and academics at St. Andrews. Families joined us from high schools across the DC area to meet with them and answer all questions. Thank you to the University of St Andrews!
