We thoroughly enjoyed attending this year’s OACAC conference, hosted by the University of Oregon. It’s always a pleasure to connect with admission and counseling professionals from all over the world (89 countries represented!) to talk about best practices when working with students and families. It’s also an honor to spend time with people who have been in the profession for many years before us and to learn from them. Special congratulations to Peter Hauet for not only winning the Lifetime Achievement Award, but also having it renamed in his honor.
This year, there was quite a bit of dialogue about making the application process safe for honest applicants. You can read about some of the topics of discussion here.
