US University Applications guidance and support
In 2014 – 2015 academic year, 95% of our students were accepted into either their first or second choice of US university. This list shows just some of the universities we have helps students win admission to.
For US University Applications we offer:
We provide independent, expert and constructive feedback on selecting the best portfolio of US universities to apply to. We will advise you on selecting a number of universities that reflects your ambitions and full potential but at the same time is not too risky. Once a portfolio of universities has been selected, we will then draw up a plan of action, complete with major milestones for test preparation and essay drafting, to meet the final submission deadlines.
We will work with you to devise a plan, almost like a timetable, that clearly lays out the key milestones that need to be reached throughout the entire application process.Depending on how much time we have, we can build some flexibility into the timetable to prepare for any unforeseen delays during the application process.The timetable will clarify when key deliverables such as reference letters, application essays and/or personal statement need to be achieved by.
Based on your profile, your experience and your ambitions, we will advise you on potential referees who will best represent you. Advice will be given to referees so that their story of you and their representation of you ties in seamlessly with the other parts of your application. It is imperative that the whole application “hangs well” as a complete unit.
Personalised, targeted and efficient tutoring (either online or in-person) for the SAT I, SAT II Subject Tests and ACT. Our tutors have experience and a track record of success in improving performance and achievement. Our tutors guide and advise students on exam technique and how best to approach SAT I, SAT II Subject Tests and ACT. The tutorials will also provide you with the opportunity to revise your strategy for approaching questions and to evaluate your performance in mock tests as well as reviewing the type of questions that you find more challenging.
We will guide you through drafting your admissions essays to ensure that it reflects your academic potential. We will work with you to draft and redraft until we have a compact and polished statement and/or set of essays that cover and address your complete profile. Our approach to writing the personal statement is to reflect on your unique story. We call this stage of the process “profile branding;” in other words we craft the core messages that we want the admissions committee to know about you. Once we know your core messages, we can then decide which of your past experiences to highlight, assess what stories will make you stand out, brainstorm essay topics, write drafts and finalise a polished product.
