About this livestream


What is a capstone project? How will it help me stand out to colleges? And what does it convey to admissions officers?

Stop by this Wednesday to have all these questions answered, and more! Shravya will walk you through how to plan and execute your own capstone project in a way that will demonstrate passion and growth to admissions committees. She'll cover the entire process of a capstone, from ideating your project idea, to finding the resources to make it a success, and (of course) discussing your capstone in college applications. There will also be time for questions, so be sure to let Shravya know in the chat if there's anything else you were wondering about the capstone process.

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.
