What is ETS?

Educational Talent Search (ETS) is a federally-funded pre-college program designed to support students in succeeding in junior high and high school and achieving their goals for pursuing higher education at a community college or university. It is a program of the Student Academic Services Department in the Student Affairs Division at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo with an annual federal budget of $240,000.

ETS critically enhanced the schools I chose to apply to by going on various campus tours and taking advantage of the services offered.
