Mock Admissions Day 


Hey Mentor's most popular annual event is our Mock Admissions Day. We recognize that most students may not know what admission offices at universities are looking for. We created this FREE event to provide high school juniors with early insight so that you will be able to produce a stronger application in the fall of your senior year when you apply to colleges. 


  • College Admissions Q&A with Kim Anh Tran

  • Mock Admissions Workshop

  • Majors Panel

  • Mentorship Matching 

  • Fun activities and more!

How does it work?

When you attend our mock admissions event, you will fill out a short version of the UW application that will take about 20-30 minutes to complete at the event. Your responses will include enough information for Kim to assess how well you are prepared for selective universities such as UW. After attending our event, we will send you your results online about 3-4 weeks after the workshop. Results will show the strength of your application as well as a personalized list of recommendations catered to each student to suggests specific ways you can improve your chances of getting into top universities when you apply to colleges in the fall. 


This year's workshop will be held at UW in the Nanoengineering and Sciences building in room NAN 181.

The annual UW Night Market will also be taking place at 5:30 PM this day, so feel free to stick around on campus afterwards!
