TOPIC: Who will make a great applicant in the eyes of an admission offer.
In this seminar, Raymond Hong who was a former USC admission officer who has sent numerous amount of students to Ivy League and UC School through college admission consulting, will be speaking about who will make a great applicant in the eyes of an admission offer.
Top schools often want to select students who can develop diverse talents and characteristics. Raymond teacher knows exactly what Ivy League Universities want, and he can share his “know-how” & give “strategies” to build a strong and outstanding application. It is different from our perspective that Ivy Leagues will only select students with outstanding knowledge and talents for their major. However, after first identifying students with academic talent and aptitude, they will then re-select students in a fairly subjective manner. The key idea here is “to choose students with different colors”, which will be recognized in different areas like EQ index, extracurricular activity, awards, and intellectual curiosity.Essays are the best way to show  excellence in  these above areas. This seminar will inform parents of these processes, standards, and criteria. Please prepare for college admission this summer before it is too late!
