About this livestream
Liberal arts colleges, like Amherst or Wellesley, are predominantly focused on undergraduate education. Unlike larger universities, their priority is less on research or graduate school and more on providing the best possible learning environment for curious undergraduate students.
So how does that play out in real life? Well, in this stream, Giebien will walk you through what exactly it means to attend a liberal arts college, so you can determine if this path is best for you. He’ll be explaining the pros, cons, and everything in between, so come prepared with questions or just stop by to get the real inside scoop on these schools.
Undergrad College: Williams College '20
Work Experience: I first joined CollegeVine in the fall of 2016. Since then, I've worked as an essay and admissions consultant, SAT tutor, and hiring manager within the company. More recently, I've also advised hundreds of students in my livestreams, specializing in liberal arts colleges and standardized testing content.
My Admissions Story: I did almost everything wrong in my undergraduate applications, and I was never supposed to attend Williams. The fact that I did is the best thing that ever happened to me! I've learned a lot of tips over the years on what to do in your college applications, and I have ample first-hand experience of what not to do as well. But the biggest lesson of all? Don't let yourself stress too much about the admissions process. Things (somehow) found a way to work out for me in the end. They will for you, too!
