8 Quick Guide to US Colleges Admission Process Start the process early. It takes time, and the deadlines are strictly followed. Use the following tips as a helpful guide! SAT or ACT? Decide which one is best for you and take it multiple times. Know your strengths. Use the multiple intelligences theory by Professor Howard Gardner as a guide. Take the SAT Subject Tests if they are required by the college you are applying to. Decide which ones to take and narrow your focus when studying the material. Have a resume that includes details about all your extracurricular activities and leadership positions Start thinking about which of your teachers to ask for recommendation letters. Research colleges to decide on a good fit in terms of your major, desired population, proximity to an airport, student diversity, etc. Know and keep up with deadlines for college applications, test dates, and scholarship opportunities. Know statistics about admission for several colleges. Prepare to write many essays. Decide how your education will be financed. If you are a US citizen, you may be eligible for some student loans. Attend and/or encourage your parents to attend the Pro Educators Plus seminar on 5 Tested Tips for Impressing Top Colleges in the US. These tips were put together by Ivy League Colleges and only very few people have access to this information. Mrs. Aladesanmi and Ms. Diane Tizzano will be in Nigeria in November 2013 to present at the seminar. According to the Harvard admissions office, colleges are not looking for automatons, but students who know how to learn and apply knowledge. I will expatiate on this at the seminar. I look forward to working with each student and family in creating a lifechanging experience through exposure to academic centers of excellence, as well as navigating and completing the US college admissions process. Sincerely, Mrs. Folashade Aladesanmi. Founder, Pro Educators Plus
