We start with the basics of U.S. colleges and universities and the search process. What are the differences between research and liberal arts institutions? Public or private universities? The benefits of urban, suburban, and rural campuses? In the second session, we will review mock applications for a better understanding of what admissions officers look for, how decisions are made, and how to put your best application together. Session 3 dives deep into the nuances of applications: the college essay, extracurricular activities, and recommendations.

The final seminar focuses on the practical application process for international students. What will make you stand out? What paperwork will you need? Are there extra courses or exams you must take? Once you complete this program, you can go forward with powerful knowledge to submit your best university applications.

Cost: $500 per family
