What is PrepTalk? PrepTalk is a new virtual webcasting tool designed for the college admission process. Through PrepTalk, colleges can communicate with prospective students in a live setting. Why was PrepTalk created? On average, colleges visit 500 high schools a year, yet there are 27,000+ high schools in the United States 75% of students would speak with a college representative via webcam, but currently only4% have done so. A college education is the second largest investment a family will make (next to a home), but its often difficult for parents to get direct interaction with college reps Demonstrated interest is an increasingly important factor – more than 50% of colleges rank it as being of considerable or moderate importance in the decision making process How do I learn more about PrepTalk events?
