Applying to US Colleges

University 101 Course Overview

As you consider the US as your choice study destination, we’re offering you a complimentary course to prepare for the admissions process. University 101 will lay the foundation of your application: what types of courses are available? What considerations should you take into account when applying to university beyond rankings? How should you plan your application timeline? The free trial will also give you access to the SAT diagnostic test.

Applying to college does not have to be an anxiety-inducing experience if you start early and have a clear action plan. 

Applying to US Colleges Course Overview

Once you are familiar with the fundamental components of an application, how then do you get to where you want to be? Depending on the selectivity of the schools you desire (Ivies, top 50, top 100, specialised courses etc), receiving an acceptance letter could be a walk in the park or a dive into the deepest ocean. Having an application strategy from the get-go would prevent an unplanned gap year or dissatisfaction from a poor-fit course!
Our Applying to US Colleges course contains tried and tested advice that has helped our students get into at least 2 in 5 competitive schools, often with some form of scholarship (covered in a separate track without additional cost!). We will guide you on school choice and refine crucial components like your essays, interviews, resume and letters of recommendation.
You will learn to:
  • Explore courses and schools based on your interests, strengths, preferences and career goals
  • Construct your application strategy, from school selection to personal branding, to get the best results
  • Work through your application requirements in a mindful, intentional and timely manner
  • Draft your communication to fit the US admissions culture, which is very different than that in Europe and Asia
  • Integrate feedback from your teachers/counselors/seniors
  • Get feedback from our experts
  • Manage waitlist decisions and formulate Plan B
With an intelligent application strategy and a unique personal brand, you can stand out from the thousands of other applicants and give yourself the best chance of success.
