Hong Kong, China (PRWEB) November 06, 2012
A noted American university admissions expert will share his tips on selecting and applying to the right universities in the United States with members and guests of the American Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong. Dr. Mark Montgomery, President of American Academic Advisors, will deliver a presentation entitled, “Roadmap to US University Admissions,” in which he provides practical guidance for students and parents who seek higher education opportunities in the US.
The seminar aims to equip parents with the necessary tools to plan and manage the application process for their children in a structured and efficient manner. Topics will include an overview of the US higher education system, a discussion of what is the best university and what constitutes a “selective” university, an overview of what selective universities want to see in their applicants, and strategies to help students stand out from the tens of thousands of applicants the most selective universities receive each year.
“I’m delighted to be speaking again at the American Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong,” Dr. Montgomery said. “The US admissions system is highly complex and decentralized, and many families find it hard to understand exactly what admissions officers want to see in their applicants. I hope I can shed some light on how the process really works.”
Dr. Montgomery will share his experiences in working with different students in the seminar, including many from Hong Kong and China. Any parent with school-age children considering higher education in the United States is welcome. The seminar will address concerns of both US citizens and citizens of other countries.
The event will take place on November 8th from 8 to 9:30 am at the offices of the American Chamber of Commerce. Registration is required. To learn more about this seminar and to register, please see the event announcement on the website of the American Chamber of Commerce.
