自tek College Prep: Sophisticated Strategies (additional discussion)

We understand that when a student applies to college, every decision affects the whole family. That’s why we encourage parents and students to attend our workshops together. Families need a solid foundation of shared information to build a smart strategy for a successful result.

The stakes are high. Tuition is expensive. Competition is fierce: Harvard, MIT, and Princeton admit around 5% from tens of thousands of applicants. The stress on kids and the entire family can be brutal. The process itself is complicated. For example, do you know the difference between Early Action (EA), Early Decision (ED) and Regular Action (RA)? You should, because admissions rates are up to three times higher in ED versus RA.

Meanwhile, some families pay thousands for private admissions “consultants.” Private high schools have an entire staff dedicated to guiding their students, one-by-one, into the most elite colleges. And it’s frustrating that some families know the secrets of the process, having “played the game” for generations. It seems unfair – because it is.

But there is a way to level the playing field: Good Information. The most sophisticated strategies for applying to elite colleges should not be secret. This workshop teaches your family many of the same proven strategies, detailed information, and successful techniques that an expensive “consultant” would – across the whole, complicated spectrum of issues that determine admissions success – including these:

• The US system is unique. In most countries, admissions are decided by an objective exam. The American system is highly “subjective.” Therefore, the subjective half of the application, beyond SAT scores and GPA, is just as important, including depth of Extracurriculars, Essays, Interviews, “intellectual curiosity,” “personality” and “character.” It is therefore crucial for each applicant to create a coherent personal “profile” or “story” that makes sense across the full application. This process of self-awareness should start as early as middle school (it will help for everything else in life too!). It requires hard work, thought, and planning. But if you ignore it, or wait until senior year, you are at a big disadvantage.

• In most countries, only a few government-sanctioned Universities are truly “elite.” In the US, there are 25 elite colleges, and each is looking for a slightly different kind of applicant. Therefore a sophisticated understanding of the differences between schools is essential to a successful application strategy. Many families spend an enormous amount of time (and money) preparing for the SAT/ACT and achieving a high GPA, but relatively little working on a strategy to customized their “list” of schools to apply to, and why. This is a big mistake. This process often referred to as “finding the right fit,” requires research, hard work – and more even self-awareness.

• It’s important to understand the details of the application process, for example: should you apply Early Decision or Early Action? How many schools should you apply to? Should you interview? Visit campus? How do the decisions actually get made? Basic facts are important: what is the role of “legacy”? “diversity”? Athletics? What is the Ivy League, exactly? (Answer: it’s an athletic league). What is the difference between a college and university? What’s the advantage of “liberal arts” education vs “pre-professional”?
