Developing strategies for secondary school or College admission is a key to success. Stressed and desperate people tend to obtain information from questionable sources, and too much information can cause confusion. For many students, the application process happens too hastily with a great amount of pressure even before they get a chance to study what is right for them.
We can help you with our 7-step method:
1. Evaluate and Assess current status
Grades are the most important factor in the application process. We identify your strength and weakness from your
score reports and develop a plan to improve your GPA.
2. Create a solid secondary school or college list at the beginning of the process
Research and visit schools or college campuses on your list, focusing on whether the school's values and priorities
fit your academic, financial and social needs. Most students apply to an average of 8 schools. Make sure that your list
includes a range of selectivity: 2-3 schools that you are more than likely to get into, 2-3 schools that are hitting your
sweet spot as target schools, and 2-3 schools that are long-shots.
3. Investigate Application Requirements
4. Develop a Resume
Most colleges are not looking for well-rounded students anymore, (especially the highly selective ones). Colleges are
looking for a well-rounded class. A good admission strategy for colleges is to try to stand out and be “pointy.” Show
admissions that you are really good at a specific pursuit or interest. Prove that you have demonstrated a deep and long-
standing dedication to this passion.
5. Application Essay
The application essay is your most powerful tool. Be bold. Be interesting. Take a risk. Do not be afraid to be imperfect.
Show a new or distinctive point of view by using your authentic voice. Colleges do not want to see your resume repeated
in your essay; Make sure your essay adds value to your application. It doesn’t have to have a big story to get noticed.
Some of the best essays share little moments or a small slice of life.
6. Financial Aids
If you don’t qualify for need-based financial aid, merit aid is offered by many state and private schools to students with
good test scores and/or exceptional talents. Many schools are very generous with merit aid and will offer a merit aid
scholarship automatically. In many cases, you do not have file a special form or application for merit aid.
7. Admission Interview
All of the basic application requirement are important for admission process such as standardized testing score, GPA,
Teacher's recommendation, essay, activity, award, community service based on the assumption that each student
prepares all of above application requirement well, the admission interview is a major key to be accepted or not.
