About this livestream


With so much pressure to perform well in school and dedicate any free time to the college application process, high school can get very overwhelming very quickly. In this series, we want to give you our best tips and tricks for taking care of yourself while still being productive enough to meet your goals.

In this episode, Shravya will walk you through our first topic: goal-setting. We’ll talk about what it means to set goals based on your values and how to set realistic and achievable standards for yourself in a way that keeps you motivated.

This will also be an interactive session — so come with a pen and paper so you can partake in a custom goal-setting exercise. And as always, we'll work to answer any questions you may have in the chat throughout the session.

Your host

Undergrad College: Rice University '20

Work Experience: During my time at Rice, I mentored dozens of high school students through the college application process, along with editing essays and tutoring students for the ACT/SAT. I also interned at a medical technology startup, conducted research in Brazil, and gave a TEDx talk. I recently finished applying to medical school; I've been admitted to multiple schools, and will be starting in the Fall.

My Admissions Story: I remember feeling very blindsided by the admissions process and not knowing where to begin. I hope that sharing my experiences and some of the things I’ve learned along the way will help guide other students in a similar boat.

Audience questions

These are questions from the audience that we had time to answer during the live session. If you have any other questions, you can request an answer from Shravya and other CollegeVine experts in an upcoming livestream or on the Q&A Forum anytime.
