Japan College Consulting
An Overview of Tokyo College Admissions Counseling
Welcome to Tokyo! A city where the futuristic neon lights of Shibuya crosswalk dance with the traditional serenity of the Meiji shrine. A place where navigating the subway system is just as complex as completing a Sudoku puzzle on the back of the Asahi newspaper. Oh, and let’s not forget about the exceptional educational institutions, such as The American School in Japan (ASIJ) and Tokyo International School that are nestled here, shaping young minds and future leaders in a class all their own.
Top students from Tokyo each year apply for elite colleges in the US aiming for the stars. But here’s the rub: just like trying to find a quiet corner in Akihabara on a Saturday evening, the journey from these prestigious Tokyo schools is long, complex, and at times confusing. But fear not! That’s exactly where IvySummit steps in. We’ve been guiding Japanese students to reach for their dream colleges for over two decades and know the application process inside out.
Our Game Plan
The college application process involves more than just academic excellence; it demands a well-rounded profile, strong personal essays, compelling letters of recommendation, a well-planned strategy and much more.
Here’s where a trusted guide can make all the difference. IvySummit, with our team of ex-admissions officers and alumni from elite universities, can provide valuable insights, personalized strategies and dedicated support to help you present your unique story effectively. It’s about honing your strengths, highlighting your passions, and leaving a lasting impression on the admissions committee
Writing a college essay can feel like trying to navigate the Tokyo subway system during rush hour. It’s crowded, complex, and it feels like everyone around you knows exactly where they’re going, while you’re left spinning in a whirl of questions: Where do I start? What story should I tell? Is this too cliche? How do I stand out?
IvySummit helps steer you through the maze of college essay writing. Our team will provide the roadmap you need to navigate the essay process. We help you identify your unique story, structure your thoughts, and bring out your authentic voice amidst the dash of college applications
Senior Year Timeline
Senior year, the climax of your high school journey, can feel like a sprint. In the midst of the crowd and chaos, navigating college application deadlines and processes can become an overwhelming task.
We ensure you’re not merely part of the rush, but you’re moving with intention and purpose. Our team will guide you from the early action and decision deadlines in the fall, through regular decision submissions in the winter, and all the way to the final college commitment in spring.
Creating the right college list is a task that requires more precision than preparing the perfect sushi roll. The wrong combination could lead to disappointment, while the right blend of reach, match, and safety schools could open the door to exciting opportunities.
At IvySummit, we don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to your college list. Our experts know that every student has unique aspirations and potentials. That’s why we help craft a personalized college list that takes into account your academic strengths, extracurricular interests, financial considerations, and personal preferences.
Extracurricular interests aren’t about ticking off a checklist of activities, any more than Tokyo is just about its famous crosswalk in Shibuya. It’s about finding what truly lights your fire, fuels your passion, and showcases your unique character.
We understand that every student is more than a combination of grades and test scores. That’s why our team helps students cultivate and articulate their extracurricular pursuits in ways that genuinely reflect their unique interests and contributions.
