Episode #25: How My Student Beat the 5% Acceptance Rate

In this episode of Demystifying College Admissions, I will be interviewing my student, Shivangi who got accepted into USC Marshall School of Business WBB Program (5% Acceptance rate), University of Michigan  Ross Business School, UC Berkeley, and UCLA! Tune in to hear how we were able to strategize for her college applications and essays to beat the low acceptance rate!

TUNE IN BELOW:

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN ABOUT IN THIS EPISODE:

  • The four essential components that Ivy Leagues and Top-Tier Schools look for
  • Questions to ask yourself in order to ensure inner-confidence
  • How to best position yourself in your application to authentically represent yourself
  • How my student got into a school with such a low acceptance rate
  • What kind of proven tools you will gain if you work with me

NOTABLE QUOTES:

I want all of your hard work to pay off. I believe that you have the capacity to get accepted into these colleges even though the acceptance rate is low, and that’s exactly what I’m going to teach you in the course!
If I’m going to work for it, then you’re going to work for it with me.
You were always able to catch onto that and make sure that it was really individualized and my personality came through instead of it just being another generic story that probably a lot of college admissions officers would see.
Because in the beginning, you’ll see that Julie she’s always really on top of her game.
