Gabe Speaks: CHS/MST Sr. Reflects on Fly-in Visits at Four Major Universities

CHS/MST senior Gabe Mukobi wasn’t quite sure where he wanted to go to college, so he took advantage of a little known program that many universities support called pre-admission fly-in. The basic idea of these programs is that, “One of the most important factors in deciding if a college is right for you is whether or not you can picture yourself as a member of campus. For many students this means a campus visit. If the college isn’t nearby, however, traveling to visit the college might not be possible due to financial limitations. The good news is that several colleges offer free fly-in programs, travel assistance scholarships, overnight programs and diversity programming that comes at little or no cost to students accepted to their programs!” (College Greenlight). Gabe spent part of the fall doing just that, visiting four colleges far from home, including Rice University, Columbia University, MIT, and CalTech. Read his story and advice here: Gabe Speaks!
