CPC Project Gateway Holds 4th Annual Instant Decision Day with University at Buffalo
CPC held its fourth annual ‘Instant Decision Day' in collaboration with the State University of New York – University at Buffalo (‘UB’) on December 10th. Thirty-seven high school students from across the city gathered at CPC’s Queens Community Center to have their college application reviewed on-site by University at Buffalo admissions counselors.
The event was an overwhelming success. Of the 37 students who attended, 25 of them were presented acceptance letters or conditional acceptance to the schools' Education Opportunity Program (EOP). Making the acceptance rate for the event around 67%. The remaining students also received valuable advice on what they could do the strengthen their application for further review during the school’s regular admission process.
Students had overwhelmingly positive feedback regardless of their decision. Students describe their meeting with the admissions counselors as:
"... a comfortable and smooth meeting..."
"...It was informative and very well set up..."
"...educational! Learned about credit transfer and the MBA program..."
