Description

EducationUSA Singapore is pleased to announce the fourth cycle of the college admissions training program for Singapore school counselors. The training program will take place on Thursday, August 24th from 3:30-6:30 pm at the EducationUSA Advising Center.

At this session, in addition to general sharing, we have also arranged interactive presentations on the following topics;

Common App Review- The Common App has just been released for the 2017-2018 year. Chances are, your students will be sending the Common App to a majority of the colleges on their list. How do you help them put their best foot forward? What’s new with the Common App? What resources you can use to make your life easier with those new changes and more.

Essay Writing Workshop- How often have you worked with students and heard the same thing. “I’ve got all of my applications done- except the essays”, only the most important part of the application? This session will give you helpful hints on writing the essay and understand what colleges look for in an essay, how to get started and different types of questions asked.

Case Studies- Wear the hat of a college admissions rep and make those tough decisions. Sounds fun! Isn’t?

Counselors will also receive 30th Edition of “International Student Handbook 2017” published by College Board (one copy per school) to help you continue to do the amazing job you all do!

Please coordinate with other counselors at your institution to send a maximum of 2 representatives from each school who work most closely with U.S. college admissions. Keeping the size of these sessions small will allow more hands-on activities and practical training.

We look forward to welcoming you down again to our EducationUSA Advising Center soon!
