Developing Young Leaders for Prestigious Academic Institutions
Attending a prestigious academic institution is an impressive achievement. Therefore, it is critical for young leaders to start grooming early.
A high GPA and ACT or SAT score are not enough to get you into an Ivy League school. Since the college admissions process has recently become very competitive, most highly intelligent and qualified students are rejected due to low acceptance rates. Therefore, to gain admittance, you must show that you are not only smart, but also highly unique.
Apply Early Decision/Early Action: Making an “early decision” means that you have selected the designated college as your top choice, and will definitely attend if accepted. “Early action,” on the other hand, refers to the process of applying early to a college, typically by November 1 of your senior year.
The most important difference between the two is that if your early decision is accepted, you must withdraw all of your other applications and attend the school to which you applied; whereas, if a college you applied early to accepts your application, you can still choose to attend a different school instead. Your chances of getting into a prestigious Ivy League school increase significantly by applying early decision for one school; however, you should only make an early decision if you are committed to enrolling in that school.
Stellar Personal Statement: Crafting your personal statement offers a unique opportunity to connect with admissions committee readers on a deeper level. You will want to highlight something unique and special about yourself in a way that encourages the reader to want to fight for you. Part of this process involves proving to them that you will be an excellent return on investment, figuratively.
Attend a Top High School or Participate in Magnet Programs: Selective programs and exclusive high schools provide access to a wide range of competitive classes and exceptional college admissions counselors who can help guide you. However, implementing innovative strategies can help you put together a stellar story and application, even if you attend a regular high school.
Seek Professional Help: Rather than reinventing the wheel, you can always choose to follow in the footsteps of the giants who have come before you. To get ahead of your fellow competitors, you must work smarter and more strategically than they do. You will want to ensure that you work with a professional who has a proven record of success to help you throughout your school application process.

In today’s world, we are all connected on a global scale; therefore, you must develop a global perspective to thrive in the 21st century. A global perspective is an inclusive view through which you see the world, which shapes how you assess and understand your own identity and the identity of others.
