JASON CHENG
48:16

Kevin Ohlsen
56:48
I am a junior and in hybrid classes, if my grades slip will that hurt me? I only see my teachers 2 days a week and the rest I work on packets sent to me. I am trying to learn a lot on my own.
Carlos Cano - Assistant Director of Admissions for Communication
57:07
Kevin, that is a great question and we will definitely address this later too.
Carlos Cano - Assistant Director of Admissions for Communication
57:31
What I will say is this, we are going to take a look at you from a broad standpoint.
Carlos Cano - Assistant Director of Admissions for Communication
58:15
That said, we know that the circumstances for now can have an affect on your grades. This is another reason why it is important for you to have a rapport with your admissions counselor.
Kevin Ohlsen
58:37
Thank you! I have friends who log on and have to listen to their classes when they are virtual, my school does not offer that option.
Carlos Cano - Assistant Director of Admissions for Communication
59:02
As the slide here very nicely tells, your essay is an opportunity you may need to take to explain something we may not be able to see or know on paper otherwise.
Danny Robinson - Associate Director of Admissions
59:53
The essay is a perfect place to speak about whatever you are concerned about this year @Kevin
Carlos Cano - Assistant Director of Admissions for Communication
01:00:11
Don't talk about Maine lobsters in your essay when you should be talking about New York bagels!
Carlos Cano - Assistant Director of Admissions for Communication
01:00:19
:-D
JASON CHENG
01:00:28
*New York pizzas
Carlos Cano - Assistant Director of Admissions for Communication

01:01:03
When i submit my application, do you suggest reaching out to your admissions officer shortly after to inquire if you received it
Stephanie Seiffert
01:01:13
Does a recommendation from an alumni carry more weight?
Carlos Cano - Assistant Director of Admissions for Communication
01:01:13
Emily, absolutely!!
John Tiberia
01:01:14
Hi! On the common app, the essay says a maximum of 650 words and a minimum of 250 words. Should I disregard that and follow the SUNY Maritime's request of 250 words.
Collin Freese
01:01:16
deep dish is better than new york style
Danny Robinson - Associate Director of Admissions
01:01:57
@Emily you can as soon as you would like. You are encouraged to start building a relationship with your admissions counselor before or after the application is submitted
Carlos Cano - Assistant Director of Admissions for Communication
01:02:02
Stephanie, it certainly has a touch more value because they can speak to how you would be a fit for the college based on their experience.
Carlos Cano - Assistant Director of Admissions for Communication
01:02:20
John, be as concise as you can! Remember we read a lot of essays! :-)
Danny Robinson - Associate Director of Admissions
01:03:17
@John get your point across as to what is important for you to express if that is more towards the 650 we will read every word. But as Carlos says try to be concise
