Anyone considering attending a private college in Minnesota should be aware of Minnesota Private College Week.
From June 24 to June 28, 2013, twice daily sessions will be held at each of Minnesota’s 17 private colleges and universities. The morning session will run from 9:30 to 11:45 am while the afternoon sessions run from 2:00 to 4:15 PM. College visits get busy during this time so you should register for the visit before attending whichever colleges you have an interest in.
While there are certainly other times to visit these colleges, this is a great opportunity to see a number of colleges in one week. The great thing about visiting different colleges during this week is that you get to see the different personalities that each college has.
Wondering which colleges will have sessions? Here is a list of the colleges participating:
- Augsburg College
- Bethany Lutheran College
- Bethel University
- Carleton College
- College of Saint Benedict
- College of St. Scholastica
- Concordia College, Moorhead
- Concordia University, St. Paul
- Gustavus Adolphus College
- Hamline University
- Macalester College
- Minneapolis College of Art and Design
- Saint John’s University
- Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota
- St. Catherine University
- St. Olaf College
- University of St. Thomas
If your college interests lie outside Minnesota check out your local colleges. Visiting colleges is one of the best ways to figure out what you are looking for in a college.
The National Association for College Admission Counseling has just released their list of colleges that still are accepting applications for Fall 2013. There are currently 210 colleges around the country with openings for freshman and/or transfer students.
If you are a senior and still have not found a college to attend for Fall 2013 head on over to the list. It provides not just the name of the college and what state they are located in but also whether they have openings for transfer students, have housing available and states if they have financial aid available. However, get over there quickly because as colleges fill up, your options will be much more limited.
In the past 10 months since my free BS/MD newsletter began more than 600 people have subscribed. But I suspect that some of you that have an interest in BS/MD admissions still haven’t subscribed to the newsletter. So I thought I would give you a little glimpse into what you have missed.
- A case study of an applicant who successfully applied to Northwestern HPME.
- A case study of another student, academically stronger, who was not accepted into HPME. And a discussion of why this student was not accepted.
- Detailed information on where you should be volunteering.
- Information on what the BS/MD program at UMKC is looking for in applicants from an assistant director of admissions.
- And much more…

I’ll see you on the inside.
It has been another good year at College Admissions Partners. For the third year in a row more than 75% of my students applying to BS/MD programs were admitted to at least one program and many were accepted into more than one program. If there is a number after a college it reflects the number of my students admitted to that program.
Congratulations to all of my students on all of the hard work you have done to get to this point.
