Event description

Description

Gain exclusive insights into the most competitive application process in the world from a former Stanford Admissions Officer.

Find promo code in the description below.

Are you aiming to secure a spot at top US colleges, such as Harvard, UC Berkeley, Duke or Stanford?

Even if you do have a perfect 1600 on the SAT or have done truly outstanding extracurriculars, there is still no guarantee you'll receive a coveted letter of offer.

So who are the gatekeepers of every college?

The Admissions Officers.

These are the people who read applications in a matter of minutes and determine the future of high-flying students from around the world.

That's why if you're serious about studying in the US, you don't want to miss the chance to hear from Martin Walsh.

Whether or not Stanford is your dream school, Martin Walsh has inside knowledge about the college admissions process and can tell you what will - and won’t - improve your chances of acceptance.

At this seminar Martin will cover:

  • Who gets in: what qualities US College Admissions Officers look for and how applications are evaluated
  • Case studies to discuss in detail what makes a student application stand out and how students can develop a narrative throughout their extracurriculars, personal essays and references
  • Trends & insights that could increase an application’s chances of success


This event is for students in Grade 9/Year 10/Sec 4 or above, who are interested in finding out more about the US College application process, as well as parents of these students. Counselors are also welcome!

Martin's visit to Singapore is sponsored by Crimson Education.

About Martin

  • Former Asst. Dean of Admissions at Stanford University
  • Former Director of Admissions at Santa Clara University

Martin has over 12 years of experience in college admissions and has spent 10 years training international school college counselors, and is also a current member of the University of Chicago’s Counselor Advisory Board.

Martin shares more of his story below.




"From 1994 to 2004 I served as a teacher and coordinator at international schools in Cambodia and Venezuela. After working with literally thousands of talented students, I became intrigued by the university admission process. Who gets in and why? Is there any method to the madness? My questions sent me back to California where I accepted a position in the admission office of my alma mater: Santa Clara University.

"I spent the next few years pouring through thousands of applications determining who to admit and, sadly, who to deny. Moreover, I served on a committee to help the university update their evaluation rubric. Next, I moved on to Stanford University where I was named Assistant Dean of Admission, charged with evaluating submissions from New England’s famous boarding schools and, of course, applications from international students in South America, India and Europe.

"Over the years I am not certain how many applications I reviewed, perhaps 5,000, perhaps more? Trust me: the reading cycle is exhausting and a bit of a blur. Happily, many of my questions about the mysteries of the admission process were answered.

"Since leaving Stanford I have shared my knowledge with students, teachers and counselors at international schools in South Korea, Japan, China and Italy. And, I serve as an instructor each summer with the Counselor Training Center. I enjoy taking some of the mystery out of the college admission process; while also providing tips, guidance and insight to parents, students and teachers."
