Episode #63: Interviewing My Ivy League Formula Students (Part 5!)

Every time I interview students from my most popular consulting program, The Ivy League Formula,

I get goosebumps!

Okay, Julie, maybe it’s time to chill out. Interviewing your students about college admissions can’t be THAT exciting…

That’s where you’re wrong!

My students in this program gain clarity and understanding of what they’re passionate about, then use their academic interest, personal interest, and SPV (strengths, personality, and values) to create their own Passion Projects AND land research and intern positions from schools like Brown, UPenn, and Stanford.  

It reminds them why their dream to attend an Ivy League or top-tier college is so important and it also reminds me why I mentor hundreds of high school students with their college admissions process. And of course… Why I LOVE this job! 

So I can’t say I mind the goosebumps.

In this episode, you’ll hear from my students Fiona and Roma about how they created and scaled their own Passion Projects, the steps they took to become more competitive college applicants, and what The Ivy League Formula taught them that they will carry for the rest of their lives!

The Ivy League Formula is a 6-month group college consulting program where students receive direct, hands-on coaching and guidance from me to form a Passion Project that will STAND OUT from other applications. You can find more information on the program HERE or in the links below!

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN ABOUT IN THIS EPISODE:

  • What it’s like to be a student in The Ivy League Formula program (and just how much you’ll learn!)
  • How to trust the process when creating your Passion Project
  • The best ways to connect with college professors — that will actually get a response!
  • How Ivy League Formula students turn their projects into lifelong pursuits, and their peers into lifelong friendships

NOTABLE QUOTES:

Just having that brainstorming process there, kind of reassuring yourself, getting all of your thoughts together was so helpful.
Having people to collaborate with and (...) having people that are academically competitive, but not at your school (is) so nice.
It kind of clicked in my head that, even if I don't get the most amazing results out of this, I still would've found a direction that I'm going into. And I'll be able to expand my platforms and do something that I really like doing for the next while until I find something new.
You really hone in on what you care about. And it definitely did give me a sense of direction, because it felt like I was putting time into something that I really did care about and that I wanted to do something about.
