The International Family's Concerns About University AdmissionsIncludes a Live Event on 06/12/2018 at 12:00 PM (EDT)
Listening and empathizing is a huge part of working successfully with international families. While you cannot expect to have lived your international family’s experiences, you can learn how to best guide them by understanding and being aware of their unique concerns. We will discuss several of the most pressing worries international families have (and any others you would like to bring to the table) from rankings, post-university careers, and liberal arts education to brand-name-influence, safety (and perceived safety), and diversity—all concerns, worries, or misunderstood in the context of university admissions. We will also touch on the applications themselves and which aspects of an application can be most difficult for the international family to grasp (i.e. interviews, essay writing, expressions of humility, holistic review), and how to work through each with them.)
