Korea College Consulting
Seoul Consulting Services: An Overview
Living in Seoul is like being on a high-speed KTX train, always moving forward, ever vibrant, ever evolving. As a Seoulite student from esteemed institutions like Seoul Foreign School, Korea International School, and others you’re part of this energy, this momentum. Your future is as bright and exciting as the neon lights of Gangnam, but then comes the challenge – navigating the world of college applications. It can feel like deciphering a jigsaw puzzle where the pieces constantly change. But don’t worry – IvySummit is here to help, serving as your navigation guide on this important journey.
Stepping into the world of college applications is like embarking on a hike to the summit of Hallasan. The terrain is challenging, the path full of unexpected twists and turns. But with the right guidance, the journey can be both manageable and rewarding. That’s where IvySummit enters the scene. With our team of experts, composed of ex-admissions officers and alumni from elite colleges and two decades of experience, we’re well-versed in turning seemingly steep inclines into gentle slopes. Over the years, we’ve helped countless South Korean students navigate college applications by focusing on the different parts of the process.
Establishing a well-structured timeline is crucial for success, it’s a balance between managing the present (maintaining grades, participating in extracurriculars) while preparing for the future (SAT/ACT tests, college essays, and applications). With IvySummit, we ensure your timeline is not just efficient, but effective too. Our expert team will guide you step by step, ensuring that you’re not only meeting all key milestones, but also optimizing your high school journey to stand out in the eyes of admissions officers.
We know the ins and outs of this process and we’re here to ensure you hit each note perfectly.
Building Out Extracurricular Interests
Your extracurricular activities are like Seoul’s vibrant street markets: diverse, energetic, and rich in substance. Colleges want to see this vibrancy in your applications. They’re keen to understand who you are beyond your grades, and your activities outside the classroom speak volumes about this.
Investing time in what you love, be it a hobby, community service, or a club at school, adds depth to your application. It’s not about ticking off a laundry list of activities but about demonstrating commitment and growth in areas you’re genuinely passionate about.
Remember, it’s quality over quantity that counts.
Let’s transform your application into a unique story.
The College List
Creating your college list is like standing at the top of N Seoul Tower, looking out at the city below and deciding where you’d like to visit next. There’s so much to consider, from the fit and feel of the campus community to academic offerings, location, and financial considerations.
Choosing the right colleges to apply to is a significant part of your application journey. It’s important to be realistic about your chances, but also to reach for schools that may seem a little out of reach. We recommend a balanced list of reach, match, and safety schools.
Remember, each college on your list should be a place you’d be happy to attend. It’s not just about getting into college, but about finding a place where you’ll thrive, grow, and reach your full potential. So, take the time to research, visit (virtually if not in person), and really get to know the colleges you’re considering.
Writing an admissions essay is like performing on stage – it’s your chance to shine, to show your unique voice and perspective, to dance to your own beat.
Yet, despite its importance, many students dread the essay writing process. The blank page can be intimidating. But remember, every K-pop star started with a single note, a single step. Start small, start personal. Your essay doesn’t need to be about saving the world – it can be about your family, your experiences, or a special moment that changed your perspective.
Think of the essay as a chance to tell a story only you can tell. It’s not just about what happened, but how you reflect on it.
And don’t worry, we at IvySummit can help guide you through the process, from brainstorming and drafting to revising and polishing. Because everyone can use a good producer, right?
