Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) August 01, 2012
In today's highly competitive college admissions universe, students who hope to attend elite colleges and universities must go above and beyond the typical college admissions standards in order to set themselves above the pack. After all, Harvard University posted a record low 5.9% admission rate in 2012, sending more than 32,000 well qualified students rejection letters. The question becomes, "How does a successful high school student stand apart from the crowd?"
C2 Education's new webinar, "The Top 5 Facts Successful High School Students Must Know," will discuss some of the often missed opportunities available to students in their freshman, sophomore, and junior years, including the chance to earn college credit while still in high school, the opportunity to compete for the prestigious National Merit Scholarship, and ways to highlight strengths in the college admissions process.
