US University Admission Consultation Services

Students who are interested in applying to US universities usually start their admission planning three to four years before the year of admission. Early planning enables students to gain greater exposure to different activities, allowing them to boost their credentials. In addition, students can start preparing for the standardized tests demanded by most US universities (SAT or ACT, and SAT Subject Tests) two to three years before the year of admission. Below are the main criteria that US universities look at when assessing the students' applications.

  1. SAT or ACT results
  2. School report cards (grades 9 – 12.5) and SAT Subject Tests
  3. Extracurricular activities
  4. Personal statement and essays
  5. Letters of recommendation
  6. Interview

The IB was tough and grueling program, but I credit my peers, teachers and the wonderful tutors at Cana for providing a challenging and fulfilling environment for me to learn. Cana tutors are not only knowledgeable in their fields but also approachable; willing and able to answer any questions I had on hand. Overall, I'm really happy with completing the IB and I can definitely say that the feeling of accomplishment after receiving my score made all the hard work worth it.

Cana provides valuable advice on college selection which helps my daughter to develop an appropriate college list and find a best fit college. We have a better understanding of the U.S. college admission processes. Cana also provides good guidance in selecting essay topics and approaches which allow Esther to articulate who she is and what matters to her in a genuine and impressive way.
