About this course:

Part one: Jan 31, 2024   ChatGPT: A Powerful Tool for College Application and Admission Professionals    ChatGPT is a state-of-the-art natural language generation model that can produce coherent and engaging texts on various topics and domains. In this session, you will see live demonstrations of how ChatGPT can help college counselors and university admissions professionals with different aspects of their work, such as reviewing essays and personal statements, drafting recommendation letters and emails, building college lists, and more.      Part two: Feb 21, 2024   The Ethics and Implications of AI in College Application and Admission Processes    Artificial intelligence is transforming the way we communicate, learn, and work. It also has a significant impact on the college application and admission processes, both for the professionals behind the scenes and the students going through the process. In this session, we will have a discussion with an admissions expert, Rick Clark from Georgia Tech, about the ethical issues, do’s and don’ts, and best practices of using AI in this domain. We will also explore the broader ways in which AI is affecting the college admission landscape, such as changing criteria, challenging expectations, and influencing outcomes of the process.
