We were delighted to kick off our series of events for prospective US college applicants with an evening presentation by Admissions Directors from Stanford, University of Pennsylvania & Wellesley. Our audience of over 300 students and parents came from independent and state schools in London and further afield. These three highly competitive colleges are very popular with UK students – as shown by the speed at which the information brochures were snapped up!
The talks covered the individual features of each college as well as more general admissions information and advice. Questions posed to the speakers ranged through athletic scholarships, accommodation, and the advantages of Early Application versus Regular Decision. At the end of the formal session, the students had the opportunity to pose individual questions to the Admissions Directors.
During this term we look forward to other college presentations from equally competitive US institutions, either at lunchtime or after-school for our own students, or large evening events for students and parents from other schools.
