Is the US for Me?
How to Choose Your Dream College!

An exclusive Crimson Education webinar
Thursday 14th January, 6:30-8:00pm (UK time)

Where do you see yourself?

Why Are Crimson

Increasing numbers of UK students are studying at US universities, and its no surprise why. They offer an outstanding education, extracurricular opportunities and incomparable career opportunities. Did you know that graduate salaries often far exceed those in the UK?

One of the defining features of US universities is the liberal arts curriculum, which allows students to explore a range of subjects in the first two of years. This flexibility appeals to the growing numbers of students who are, understandably, unsure what they want to study, or those who are good at a range of different things! It's no wonder the US is such an enticing study destination.

The question is, how do you decide where to apply? With over 4,000 colleges to choose from, this can seem a daunting task. In this webinar, we will walk you through the key things you need to consider when weighing up your options - from academic strengths, campus life and location to links with industry and research opportunities. In doing this, we will also introduce you to some of the most popular colleges out there, and share you into some of their best-kept secrets.

Martin Walsh was named Assistant Dean of Admission at Stanford University, where he was charged with evaluating submissions from New England’s famous boarding schools and, of course, applications from international students in South America, India and Europe.

"Over the years I am not certain how many applications I reviewed, perhaps 5,000, perhaps more? Trust me: the reading cycle is exhausting and a bit of a blur. Happily, many of my questions about the mysteries of the admission process were answered."

Former Stanford Admissions Officer

George graduated from Harvard College with a degree in Sociology and secondary field in African American Studies, his journey to the East Coast was prologued by a quick hop over the Atlantic, all the way from Brentwood, England. Applying only regular decision to a host of top colleges, he received a likely letter of acceptance from Harvard, and needed no selling on where to enrol! He performed in and music directed various musicals, played clarinet and saxophone in college orchestras, and sang for the Harvard University Choir and the annually-touring Harvard Krokodiloes, but he also managed to squeeze in positions with a Boston after-school tutoring program, a drug and alcohol peer advising committee, and an annual fashion show.

Anika has always had a passion for linguistics and is thrilled to tap into all the resources UPenn has to offer on the subject. She even wrote her common app essay about it. She refers to linguistics as, “the music that binds me to my past but also how it can push me to the future. How I can move away from my heritage but still remain linked to my past and my mom at the same time. ”

UPenn houses the oldest modern linguistics department in the US, and offers an abundance of resources for Anika.
