, Director of Admissions and Enrollment Management, Avenues Silicon Valley
, Director of Admissions, The Nueva School

And are we actually learning what we want to know? This session will focus on the reasons for using a group activity versus a one-on-one conversational interview, the benefits and drawbacks, and the logistics of each of our programs.
