Event description

Description

What do competitive US universities actually look for in applicants, besides great grades?

This talk provides a rare opportunity for students and parents to ask Daniel Edeza, former Senior Assistant Director of Admissions at Yale University, about what it actually takes to get into the big leagues.

With a B.A. in History from Yale University and an Ed.M. in International Education Policy from the Harvard Graduate School of Education, Mr. Edeza is excited to share his insight with hardworking students from Singapore.


Don’t miss out on him addressing questions only a former admissions director can answer:

  • What do the profiles of successful applicants from Singapore to Yale look like? Are there any patterns?

  • Do you have any tips/advice specifically for students from Singapore who are looking to get into selective American schools?

  • What about the admissions process should students know, but is little-known generally?


We will also conduct an interactive mock admissions panel to give attendees a first-hand taste of how admissions officers actually make decisions. Watch how he chooses between three equally competitive and interesting applicant profiles for the final admission spot left!


Regular Tickets are $20 but will be $25 at the door.

When: 29 May 2018, 3pm to 4:30pm
