The Ivy League is a collection of 8 of the most prestigious universities in the world. Home to academic excellence, outstanding facilities and many famous and successful alumni.
These colleges are also some of the hardest to get into with the lowest acceptance rate being 3.4% for Harvard University.
Crimson are lucky enough to have many Ivy League alumni within our network and for this webinar, we asked 3 of them to join us and let us in on all the tricks of the trade.
Martin (Harvard), Sohum (Yale) and Jennifer (Cornell) are all Crimson Strategists and help many students gain acceptance to the Ivy League. They shared what Admissions Officers look for and showcased some of their students and what they did to make it to the top!
Applying to top US universities is a difficult and stressful task which is why so many students seek external support.
Each of our programmes are tailored to the student and are delivered by a carefully selected team of mentors who provide focussed support with each and every aspect of the process - from university selection to essay writing and SAT preparation.
By signing up for this webinar you will get a 1:1 university strategy meeting for you and your child with one of our expert Academic Advisors. They will review your child’s academic and extracurricular profile, provide tailored guidance as to suitable university pathways and outline what they need to do to achieve their goals.
