How do you select schools that focus on specific interest, say my daughter wants to work in marine life or biology, how/where do we get that list of schools?

Is there a resource to get one stop shop for allScholarship/grants for colleges in the USA? Preferably divided into specialty/theme( such as Marine biology)

thank you.

In the future do you think that test optional will still be the trend? Have schools realized that the test is not the most important piece of the application. Could the testing go away for good?
Bridget Murray Law
01:15:21
if there's a learning or mental health difficulty/challenge a student has faced and worked at overcoming, is that something to mention or avoid in the college application?
Paul Norris
01:16:08
Do your comments change in a school district that has a very large number of students taking 10 or more AP classes and with grade inflation like we have in Montgomery County.
Owen Knight- Tulane
01:16:14
Great question Bridget! Definitely will get to that one out loud
Bridget Murray Law
01:18:04
thank you Owen!

over 60% of our students change their major

How much should I trust the various published rankings of colleges/schools/departments?
Eric Ahlstrand (Dartmouth)
01:32:43
You should not trust ANY published rankings. Period.
Owen Knight- Tulane
01:32:52
Amen

Here here!
Owen Knight- Tulane
01:33:17
Rankings are arbitrary and reductive
UGA - Matt Willcox
01:34:48
There are lots of things that contribute to a great fit at a college or university. Rankings aren't one of them.
Laurel
01:37:52
Sign language/ASL is a popular program at WJ. How do colleges view taking ASL instead of another language? Is there concern about students meeting the college’s world language graduation requirement? How would you recommend addressing it in the application?
Marianne Oursler
01:38:29
COVID has impacted all of us in some way. Home school worked for some students but not so well for others. How can a student speak to that on their application if it impacted their school negatively?
Myriam Bonzi
01:40:47
They do them, not necessarily the parents!
Owen Knight- Tulane
01:41:17
100%!!! Same for more selective places too!
Owen Knight- Tulane
01:43:22
Yes, that Naviance scattergram won't make sense. I'm sorry
Marianne Oursler
01:46:02
Owen- what do you mean by the Naviance scattergram not making sense?
Owen Knight- Tulane
01:46:26
Like Eric was saying, sometimes people with higher grades don't get in and people with lower grades do. Admissions doesn't make sense
UGA - Matt Willcox
01:48:04
The Italian vacation example seemed pretty specific.
Eric Ahlstrand (Dartmouth)
01:48:30
Cannot confirm or deny seeing that this year, Matt.
Myriam Bonzi
01:49:14
Thank you so much!
Owen Knight- Tulane
01:49:16
