Many of the international students I talk to are aiming for a spot at an Ivy League university. The need for an exceptional SAT or ACT score is imperative in order to reach this goal. That’s not an easy task for students who may not have access to updated prep tools, who speak English as a second language, or who may not even know how far in advance they should begin to study.
I’ve had conversations with high school students from India to South Korea, and they all want to attend a university in the U.S. And for good reason: the U.S. maintains the most attractive university system in the world. Our universities attract the best professors, who are doing the most innovative and well-funded research in the world. The facilities are top-notch, and aspiring students have a wide array of degrees to choose from.
