Why start early?
For best outcomes, college-bound students are encouraged to begin the admissions process as early as the ninth grade. For international students the ideal and the best way to reach their “dream” college is, to make a start even in eighth grade, it is crucial! Since the US education culture and high school curriculum are completely different than Turkish curriculum, students need more time to focus on the US college admission requirements. Our target is to maximize the students’ test scores and academic success, extracurricular experience during his/her application process to be a competitive candidate to college admissions. Not to fall behind the schedule we encourage you start early and get in contact with Itir Aydin Overseas Educational Consultancy.
How do we do it?
Admission offers to the most selective schools are sometimes difficult to predict, even for the most competitive students. The good news is that there is a college for everyone and most colleges and universities maintain a very high acceptance rate among applicants. A student should almost always be accepted at several of his/her choices. The key factor is to target the list so that it includes some reaches, some competitive, and some likely schools. And of course, the student should be excited about the schools that go on the list.
An internet search for colleges always turns up interesting results. Some of the schools are possible matches, but a computer search cannot see, feel, or empathize with a student. It does not understand a fit between personalities and student values. It cannot be subjective.
