January is a time for starting fresh, for gaining a new prospective, and for setting new goals. It’s also right in the middle of the admissions cycle, but that shouldn’t stop you from making some resolutions to be more effective, thoughtful, and engaged in the daily work of Admission Counseling. In this broadcast, some veterans of the field speak to how their resolutions will positively impact their work with students, their relationship with colleagues, and their approach to the field as a whole. Join us and share your admission resolutions.
