Laurie Kopp Weingarten, Certified Educational Planner and President of One-Stop College Counseling

Over the last few years, college admissions have been changing rapidly. What’s recommended, required or preferred often seems to vary year-to-year, and now with COVID-19, the colleges seem to be adjusting their policies almost daily! Join Wharton alum Laurie Kopp Weingarten as she walks us through the current state of college admissions and updates us on how to increase your chances of acceptance during this unprecedented time.

She is passionate about helping students reach their full potential.

Laurie visits colleges and universities regularly and speaks directly with admissions officers to remain up-to-date on current admissions practices.
