Did you know that visiting a college is termed “demonstrated interest” by schools and is one of the admissions criteria used to determine an applicant’s acceptance? In fact, “demonstrated interest” is one piece of the admissions puzzle that can give a student up to a 40% chance of being admitted over other applicants.

Join us as we head to Boston to visit some of the top schools in the area, including:
•       Tufts
•       Bentley
•       Brandeis
•       Northeastern
•       Emerson
•       UMass - Boston
•       Boston University

Boston is one of the best college “towns” in the country. Aside from the incredible academics you will find at all of these schools, the city of Boston seamlessly combines the feel of a college town with the possibilities of a city. Within the Boston metro area, there are more than 100 colleges and universities, giving you the opportunity to make friends and connections that will last a lifetime.

Get ready for some exciting sightseeing opportunities! As we tour through the schools of Boston, there will be plenty of chances to experience what this city has to offer, including*:
•       Bowling at Boston Bowl
