Acceptance

Once your application has been received, you will be contacted in 2-3 weeks to set up a telephone or face-to-face interview with a representative from the Office of Career Planning and Placement. Your career goals and resume will be discussed, and you will establish a follow-up schedule for revising your materials and applying for internships. Please understand that your acceptance and continued enrollment is contingent upon your working with Career Services to secure a placement in a timely fashion.

Because of the speakers, class exercises, and Highlands Ability Battery Test, I was able to get a hold of how I best handle situations, my strengths and weaknesses, and how to analyze other people's talents.
