    For seniors interested in applying to the University of Southern California- Viterbi School of Engineering 

    Here are links regarding Engineering & Computer Science to anyone interested in STEM/STEAM programs.  These are much more specific than general university admission sessions or college rep visits.

    VIRTUAL VITERBI PROGRAMS
    Our virtual events focus on bringing as much of the Viterbi School to your students. We focus on making them engaging and helpful as they learn more about the disciplines, our community, and make sure to answer their questions. We hold admission information sessions 2x/week, faculty roundtables in October, and student-hosted live chats every other Sunday evening. To register for these events, please go to viterbi.live/events

    REGIONAL IN-PERSON EVENTS
    In addition to the above, we will also be traveling to select major cities across the country starting this weekend. See all the cities as well as make reservations at https://viterbiadmission.usc.edu/2021/the-usc-viterbi-admission-staff-is-going-on-the-road/.

  • West Point Admissions Briefing October 5, 2021 at 7:00 PM

    Posted by Steven Ciarrocca on 9/13/2021

    West Point Admissions and the New Jersey West Point Field Force is hosting a United States Military Academy Teams virtual meeting for rising freshman, sophomores, and juniors.  The Teams meeting will be hosted by Captain Richard Simpson, the Northeast Regional Admissions Officer for the United States Military Academy.  It will take place on October 5th at 7:00 PM.

    We are hoping your staff will participate and/or spread the word to your students.  To many educators, West Point is often seen as off limits to many potential Candidates.  Yes, the competition is keen but there are ways to help our young people in finding the path that best suits them, including a career as a leader in today’s Army.  We are including a PDF document which covers many important facts about West Point.  Some of the items we cover are:

    1. The large number of humanities and social science majors at West Point.  It is more than an engineering school.
    2. The CORE curriculum which includes composition, literature, 2 semesters of a foreign language, US Government and History, Economics, Mathematics, Cyber and Science.
    3. All-expense paid internships like working at the National Security Council in Washington, visiting London to watch Shakespeare’s plays, going to Oxford to study philosophy, working at       RAND Corp, Council of Economic Advisors, Goldman Sacks, A T Kearney, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, State Department, Manhattan DA’s Office, and the World Bank.
    4. $27 million allocated for cadet research supported by 26 research centers.
    5. The West Point Graduate Scholarship Program which prepares cadets to compete for fourteen prestigious scholarships including the Rhodes, Marshall, and Fulbright programs.  West Point has had over 243 graduates win these scholarships in the past 10 years.
    6. There are over 3000 full four-year tuition ROTC scholarships available at over 1100 colleges and universities. 

    Please take the time to review these documents.  We are here to help the students.

    We look forward to working with your students and staff.

    Sincerely,

    Richard M. Simpson
