College admission forum May 6 at Palmetto High School

Palmetto Senior High School will host “Admission 101” on Monday, May 6, to offer information on college admission procedures and policies.

A panel made up of college admission directors will offer advice and answer questions. That panel will consist of admission directors Barry Taylor, Florida International University; Janice Finney, Florida State University; Pat Herring, University of Florida; and Ed Gillis, University of Miami. The event is open to families from Palmetto, Coral Reef, Killian and South Dade high schools.

Tickets will be available on April 15. Contact the college advisor (CAP) at any of the participating high schools for tickets. Admission is free, but tickets are limited to two per family. Attendees are advised to arrive early as the venue is small with limited seating on a firstcome, first-served basis.

All attendees must be seated by 6:45 p.m. as the forum begins at promptly at 7 p.m. The panel will discuss a wide variety of topics, including application procedures, university expectations and the admissions directors’ insight as to what makes a strong college undergraduate candidate. There will be time at the end of the program for questions and answers.
