Applying Beyond the ivies

 

Did you know there are approximately 6,000 colleges and universities in the United States? That leaves you, the college applicant with a plethora of choices and opportunities. I’m willing to bet, many you’ve never heard of, but could just be your ideal fit. Often students are “sold” on a college’s “name” and what they’ve heard. The college may have a high ranking and famous alumni. This does not necessarily mean you’ve found the school of your dreams. Someone’s right fit does not mean it’s the best fit for you.

 

Northeastern University located in Boston, MA is rated as first in the country for students from India according to the website www.collegefactual.com . An analysis of student visa data suggests that in 2018 as many as 183,312 Indian students came to the U.S. to study at American colleges and universities. From this pool of 183,312, Northeastern was home to approximately 2,111 Indian students. You also get the chance to connect with current and prospective Northeastern students on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/NortheasternUniversityNUFall2017Indianstud/about/

 

What kind of school makes you feel at home? Large and urban? Small and rural? Would you like the opportunity for co-op? Do you want to go to school where many of your friends will attend? There are many things to consider. There’s an amazing group of schools listed as Colleges That Change Lives. These schools were chosen because they “ help students frame their search to find a college or university that cultivates a lifelong love of learning and provides the foundation for a successful and fulfilling life beyond their degree.” https://ctcl.org/

 

Additionally, there are 28 Jesuit colleges and universities in the U.S. with Georgetown being the oldest. A Jesuit school lives by the motto to be of service for others. We can search for schools by major, cost, location, academic rigor and scholarship availability. You can view many campuses virtually right here:https://www.strivescan.com/virtual/ If a specific school interests you and you’d like more information, please let me know and we can reach out to the school. I’m so excited to be on this journey with you. It’s going to be a great year!
