This week, for our final US Colleges Event of the season, Admissions Directors from Columbia, Princeton, Georgetown, Northwestern, Duke, and Vanderbilt gave us an insight into the vast range of learning opportunities offered at these universities. The speakers took us on an exciting journey all the way from Chicago to Nashville, stopping off at New York and Washington D.C., and in New Jersey and North Carolina along the way. The talks, presented to an audience of nearly 400 students and parents, covered holistic admissions, the financial aid process, early application policies as well as the unique strengths and characteristics of each university.
Last week our US Event focussed on the Boston area with Admissions Directors from Babson College, Boston College, Northeastern and Tufts Universities. The talks focused on academic studies, extra-curricular activities, community service, research and internships, as well as the ethos of each institution.
