WESTPORT, Conn. -- Former college admissions officer Amy Estersohn will address the major questions college admissions officials ask when reading applications at a 7:30 p.m. event Monday in the Westport Library’s McManus Room.

During the free program, Estersohn will offer strategies for navigating high school life and college admissions by gaining a better understanding of what factors are most critical to college admissions decisions.

She suggests the following type of questions colleges don’t ask are “How many hours did this candidate spend volunteering in a soup kitchen?” or “Did this candidate retake the SAT II biology exam?”

Estersohn was an assistant director of admissions at the University of Chicago, where she read more than 4,000 applications from 45 states, six countries and three U.S. territories. She is now an English teacher in Westchester County and helps families navigate the college admissions process.
