Breakfast & Learn Workshop: US Liberal Arts Colleges vs Universities – What are
the differences and how to find the best fit for your child
First 15-20 minutes is for networking Light breakfast included Are your children applying to US colleges and universities in the next few years? Do you have questions about how to best support them and ensure the process is thoughtful instead of stressful? Going to college in the United States is an intensely enriching, exciting four-year educational experience. There are many different types of colleges, and benefits to both large universities with vast facilities and large student populations, as well as close-knit communities at smaller liberal arts colleges where students know everyone on campus and enjoy small classes. Finding a school that’s a good fit for your child can help ensure they are happy and thriving in their ideal environment. Getting admitted requires navigating a complex, multi-faceted process that differs from university admissions in most other countries. In the informative workshop, Ms.
Carole Bird of Apply Ivy will share strategies to maximise your child's chance of admission. Join us to get all of your questions answered, including: - What are differences between various types of colleges and universities, and how do I choose those that represent the best fit for my child’s academic interests and personality? - Case studies of actual Hong Kong students (past clients) who have achieved admission to great schools, both liberal arts colleges and universities - What kind of role do leadership positions and community service play in the application process? What kinds of extracurricular activities are colleges looking for? - How to write compelling college admissions essays? (Yes, they are a very important part of the application and do make a difference!) - When should my child start working on applications to ensure everything gets completed in time? - Trends in college admission - why does admission keep getting more competitive each year?
