One of the most rewarding parts of my tenure in admissions has been the opportunity to work with international students. I have spent much time learning educational systems from around the world, developing cultural understanding and building networks of international educators. Helping international students understand the basics of the application system, and the ways in which their backgrounds will be viewed by admissions committees, is the building block of supporting a successful application.
International students bring so much talent and depth to an incoming class; and in my personal exposure to students from all over the globe, I have been able to experience this incredible impact first hand.
Technology allows us to stay connected; via phone, email and video skype, international students can feel confident that they are getting the kind of support they need- regardless of time zones or distance.
