Event description

Description

Did you know that Harvard received a record-breaking 42,742 applications for the Class of 2022? And that last year’s regular applicant round had an acceptance rate of 3.4%?


What separates the thousands of highly-qualified applicants who are rejected from the few who are accepted?


Everyone knows that you have to have good grades and an impressive CV to stand a chance in today’s fiercely competitive admissions landscape. But this doesn’t change the fact that top schools on average still reject eight out of ten students with perfect SAT scores.

In order to translate your academic and extracurricular success into a an acceptance from the school of your dreams, you will need to know how to represent yourself the right way in your application.

If you want to find out how to put your best foot forward so that your dream schools see your strongest application, this is the talk for you!

In this exciting and information packed talk, you will hear from two of Crimson’s most successful admissions consultants as they:

  • Share in-depth insights about what makes a successful application to top universities by analysing “before and after” case studies of Crimson’s students.

  • Discuss how their students chose the best fit schools and tailored their applications to showcase their experiences and achievements in thoughtful and engaging ways.

  • Discuss notable milestones that successful admits have achieved in their application journeys to gain admission.

In addition, one of Crimson students, Sarah, who recently gained admission to Oxford and all four of her other UK universities will also be sharing about her application and (intense) interview experience for Oxford.


Don’t miss out on this rare opportunity to get deep insights and think through the specifics of your journey into the best universities! Register now, as tickets are running out fast!
