Bentley University Director of Undergraduate Admissions offers Robinson Seniors insightful tips for making the right decision when choosing which college to attend.
Our Upper School College Counselor, Mrs. Beatriz Guzmán, conducted a video chat session with Mr. Mario Silva, Director of Undergraduate Admissions at Bentley University in Massachusetts. Interested Senior students joined the session and were able to ask questions regarding the COVID-19 current situation and its impact on the college acceptance process.
Mr. Silva also shared with students valuable tips that can help them make their final college acceptance decisions, and keep abreast of all the changes universities are implementing due to the difficulties they are facing with the coronavirus pandemic.
In summary, he recommended our students to:
Verify the information disclosed by the state Governor of the University they are interested in. Most High Education Institutions will follow what the state is recommending.
Contact their accepted university admissions office or assigned counselor for a list of students from Puerto Rico who have visited the campus and can be contacted. These students will be able to share their experiences and answer questions that might help in their final decision.
Keep visiting university websites for possible virtual campus tours or any other information that might help them in their final decision.
Last but not least, Mr. Silva assured our Seniors that all Higher Education Institutions will assist new students during their first fall semester, making the transition process a comfortable one.
We want to thank Mr. Silva for joining us and sharing such great advice to our students!
