New York, NY (PRWEB) July 15, 2010
ApplyWise (http://www.applywise.com), the first online, on-demand college admissions counseling program, and Dulwich College Beijing (http://www.dulwich-beijing.cn), an international school based in Beijing, China, announce today that the ApplyWise program will now be available to Dulwich College Beijing high school students as a key part of their college counseling services.
“The U.S. college admissions process can be overwhelming, even for families who are familiar with the process. It’s even more stressful for families who are living abroad,” says Liz Hamburg, co-founder and co-CEO of ApplyWise. “ApplyWise’s online program gives Dulwich families 24/7 access to expert U.S. college admissions advice whether they are in China or anywhere around the world. ApplyWise provides information, advice, resources and instruction to complement the work of Dulwich’s excellent counseling team.”
“We are delighted to sign-up with Applywise,” says Graeme Salt, Head of Senior School at Dulwich College Beijing, “the online guidance to students and parents and the access to additional ‘in country’ support services is just what we need to extend our US guidance programme.”
The ApplyWise program provides college admissions guidance services for students, parents and counselors. Using ApplyWise, Dulwich students can access 12 on-demand interactive lessons that help them learn about U.S. admissions and build exceptional applications. The ApplyWise parent and counselor dashboards allow parents and counselors to track students’ progress and deadlines, communicate and collaborate and get the latest information on U.S. college admissions. The ApplyWise program incorporates methodologies used by college admissions expert Dr. Katherine Cohen and her team of counselors who have helped students get into the colleges of their choice for more than 10 years.
