Paula Dofat’s “Maximizing the College Counseling Experience” Talk
October 20, 2019
On Sunday, October 20th nearly 50 upper school students and parents gathered at Calvert School for Paula Dofat’s “Maximizing the College Counseling Experience” event. Families spent a meaningful afternoon with Paula Dofat, Director of College and Career Success at the Baltimore Leadership for Young Women as Paula shared her expertise in the many different facets of the college search process. Paula shared with families how they can “own the process” and that they should never be afraid to ask questions along the way. She shared substantial resources and information about summer programming on college campuses for middle and upper school students, how to find scholarships, and why HBCU’s can be an incredible fit.
Thank you to Calvert School for hosting this wonderful event and a special thanks to Paula Dofat for giving families the tools and resources to leverage the partnership with their own student’s college counselor throughout the college search and application process.
