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 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.

How does it work?
When you register to our mock admissions event, you will fill out a short version of the UW application that will take about 20 minutes to complete. Your responses will include enough information for Kevin Truong, UW Admissions Application Reader and Founder of Hey Mentor to accurately assess how well you are prepared for prestigious universities such as UW. After attending our event, we will hand you your results. 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.
Lunch and snacks will be provided.
We do not provide buses for this event because of the amount of high schools we work with. Public transportation is easily accessible to the UW. The Nanoengineering Building is located south of Red Square and west of Drumheller Fountain.
If you plan to park on campus, be aware that event parking rates may apply ($15 for full-day). However, more than likely parking will be free on weekends after 12pm. You can park at E-1 lot, Padelford Garages, or Central Garage.

UW Night Market
On top of Hey Mentor's Mock Admissions Event, UW Night Market, the largest annual event at UW hosted by the UW Taiwanese Student Association is held immediately after our event. This means double the fun for students who choose to attend this fun student-led food festival on campus. The night market is open to the public so you can grab a couple friends to buy some delicious food and bubble tea, and enjoy performances.
