Know thyself:  

  • What are my strengths, talents & interests?
  • What kind of learner am I?

There is no one-size-fits-all solution

It’s not about the name, but about the fit

We are here to help ask the right questions...


Land of Opportunity:

  • HUGE importance placed on college/university degree
  • Plans for admission and financing are made VERY early
  • “Elite” universities & colleges (ivy league, liberal arts colleges, seven sisters)
  • students spend much time researching, touring and learning about schools
  • strong academics, extra curricular & test preparation
  • Most students live “on campus”
  • Involved application process with deadlines:
    • early admission: November 15th
    • regular admission January 1st
  • Application is centralized by the UCAS
  • Elite is similar to USA elite 
  • not as much focus on college entry testing
  • strong academics coupled with extra curricular activities
  • Scotland is different: free tuition for EU students
