OpenApply Workshop: The Application Experience

At OpenApply, we've taken over a thousand school application forms and checklists, and re-created them online. Through this process, we've developed two observations: (1) No two schools have the same application process. (2) Application forms & checklists are not created equal - some are more effective than others.

How do you take a family from inquiry to enrollment? How does your process communicate your school story? In this session, we'll review different application forms and checklists, and workshop your own application process to ensure it reflects the story you want to tell.

Job-Alike
Admissions employees are faced with many of the same struggles. Why re-invent the wheel when we can share all of our experiences face-to-face.

Participants will be broken down into several groups, given hand-outs, and asked to dissect and evaluate several topics including:
  • The school tour
  • Admissions applications
  • Admissions forecasting
  • Managing expectations
