Admissions officer offers advice to juniors, parents

By Eric Greenberg

The Assistant Vice President for Undergraduate Admissions at New York University advised juniors and their parents about the application process at their class meeting yesterday and Junior Parent Night last night.

Shawn Abbott has spoken to parents in the past, and the deans wanted juniors to hear his advice, Upper School Dean Jon Wimbish said.

Abbott has worked at Stanford University and Columbia University.

“To have someone on the college side validate the things we are saying or put it in a different context is pretty invaluable,” Wimbish said.
