College Counseling

Coastline Case Studies Program


The Coastline Case Studies Program on April 8
 is for junior students and parents to meet collectively as an imaginary admission committee. In those committees, participants will be guided by actual admission counselors who will discuss mock applications. As a group, they will then decide which students to accept, waitlist, and deny. It is the goal of this activity that attendees will begin to understand the ways in which a college application is read, the common mistakes made by applicants, and the nuances that go into the review process.

Following the case studies, a college fair will take place with over 70 colleges in attendance. The majority of these representatives will be the ones reviewing applications next year, so students should not miss the opportunity to introduce them-self, demonstrate interest and ask questions.


In being more environmentally conscious, the cases that will be used during the program have been posted on this page below. It is recommended that participants read each file carefully ahead of time, taking note of the differences among each applicant. Printed applications will not be made available on site, although you are invited to print your own copy at home and bring it with you the night of the program.
