Abu Dhabi College Consulting
Abu Dhabi Consulting Services: An Overview
Welcome to the crossroads of the world, Abu Dhabi! Where the modern marvels of architecture meet timeless traditions, and camels still grace the city streets as Lamborghinis whiz by. It’s a city where students at schools like The British International School Abu Dhabi (BIS Abu Dhabi), GEMS American Academy, and others are training to lead the world of tomorrow.
The first step of this journey for many Abu Dhabi students starts from applying to elite US colleges. But, even for the city that can build artificial islands in the shape of the world map, the college application process isn’t any less daunting.
It can be complex, exhausting and time consuming to navigate the process alone. Which is why we at IvySummit have been guiding students for the past two decades to reach their dream college destinations.
Navigating college applications can feel like an uphill battle. The rules seem obscure, the pressure is immense and the stakes are sky-high. That’s where IvySummit comes in.
Our team of experienced professionals – ex-admission officers and alumni from elite colleges – have mastered the enigma that is college applications. From arranging a practical timeline, to refining extracurricular interests, from assembling a tailored college list to formulating a memorable essay, we make sure no stone is left unturned.
IvySummit is not just about getting you through the door; it’s about finding the right door for you.
Creating a College List
Creating a college list is like crafting a work of art. It requires the precision of a sculptor, the vision of a painter, and the patience of a potter. And just as no two works of art are the same, no two college lists should be identical. They need to reflect your unique aspirations, interests, and capabilities.
At IvySummit, we understand this. We believe that a great college list is more than just a compilation of big names and popular choices. It’s about finding institutions that match your academic goals, support your extracurricular interests, resonate with your values, and can genuinely set you up for success in your chosen career.
We help you evaluate a broad spectrum of colleges, weighing factors like curriculum, faculty, campus culture, location, financial aid opportunities, and more. With our insights and your vision, we can sculpt a college list that is not just realistic and ambitious but also truly reflective of who you are and who you aspire to be.
Area of Excellence
An area of excellence, or as some like to call it, a ‘spike’, is a standout trait that makes you a remarkable candidate. It’s not just being good or even great at something; it’s about demonstrating extraordinary passion, dedication, and achievement in a particular area.
When it comes to college applications, demonstrating an area of excellence can significantly enhance your candidacy.
At IvySummit, we help students identify and develop their unique areas of excellence. We work with you to understand your passions and interests, and then strategize ways to deepen your involvement and showcase your accomplishments in these areas.
High school timeline
Sticking to a well-structured high school timeline is one of the unsung heroes of a successful college application. It’s like a personal GPS guiding you through the maze of high school and college admissions, ensuring you’re not just drifting aimlessly but moving purposefully towards your goals.
From selecting the right courses and extracurricular activities to keeping track of testing dates and application deadlines, there’s a lot to juggle in high school. Moreover, the steps you need to take can vary significantly depending on your academic and career aspirations, as well as the colleges you’re targeting.
At IvySummit, we help students develop a tailored high school timeline that factors in all these elements. We’ll guide you on what courses to take when, which standardized tests to prepare for, when to start working on your essays, how to plan for college visits, and much more.
Writing college essays can sometimes feel like trying to solve a Rubik’s cube blindfolded. You’re supposed to reveal your personality, passions, and potential, all while showcasing your writing skills, within a limited word count. And it’s not just one essay – there are supplemental essays, scholarship essays, and sometimes optional essays too. It can be overwhelming.
But here’s the good news: you’re not alone. At IvySummit, we know what it takes to craft compelling essays that capture your unique story and connect with admissions officers. Our team of experienced counselors will guide you through every step of the essay-writing process – from brainstorming ideas and creating a writing schedule, to polishing your final drafts to perfection.
