Description

“Die wichtigste Person der Welt ist der Geschichtenerzähler. Der Geschichtenerzähler gibt die Vision, Werte und Agenda einer ganzen kommenden Generation vor.” - Steve Jobs

Top-Universitäten interessieren sich nicht nur für einen Einser-Durchschnitt.

In diesem aufregenden und informationsbeladenen Talk wirst Du:

  • Lernen wie Du Deinen Weg durch das Gymnasium um Deine Leidenschaften und Interessen herum planst
  • Herausfinden wie Colleges Deinen persönlichen Aufsatz und Deine zusätzlichen Aufsätze verwenden um Deine Bewerbung zu bewerten
  • Lernen wie andere Teile Deiner Bewerbung wie Deine Lehrerempfehlungsschreiben zu Deiner Story beitragen
  • Erfahren wie Du schon früh anfangen kannst dein Profil zu entwickeln


Verpasse nicht diese seltene Gelegenheit tiefe Einblicke zu erhalten und die Besonderheiten Deiner Reise zu den Top-Colleges zu durchdenken!

“The most powerful person in the world is the storyteller. The storyteller sets the vision, values and agenda of an entire generation that is to come.” - Steve Jobs

Top universities aren’t just interested in straight A’s.

Take MIT, for example, one of the top 5 universities in the US, which admitted only 13% of applicants who scored above 1500 in the SAT. What happened to the remaining 87% who are clearly high academic achievers with SAT scores of 1500+? Universities care about so much more than just your number! They want to learn who you are and see you are making a difference in areas that you love.

The problem is: an admissions officer will likely spend only about 3 minutes reading your entire application.

Your passions and experiences are diverse, but you only have limited space to communicate those on your application. Every item you submit, from your GPA, to your essays, to your teacher recommendations, can be crafted as part of this story.

If you tell your story wisely and effectively, you don’t need to be a hyper-motivated overachiever to get into a great university. Show that you have what it takes to be a leader on campus, that you boldly follow your passions, and that you aren’t afraid to dive in and get your hands dirty.

With decades of collective experience and hundreds of admits to the world’s top schools under our belts, Crimson’s talented staff of mentors, advisors and counsellors are here to help!

In this exciting and information packed talk, you will:

  • Learn how to carve your path throughout high school around your passions and interests

  • Find out how top ranked colleges use your personal statement and supplemental essay to evaluate your application

  • Learn how other parts of your application, such as your teacher recommendations, contribute to your story

  • Discuss how to start developing your profile from early on


Don’t miss out on this rare opportunity to get deep insights and think through the specifics of your journey to the top colleges!
