Our team, having visited many of these schools, including Rumsey Hall School and Cardigan Mountain, are aware of the benefits of U.S. junior boarding schools for both international and U.S. middle school-aged students. Junior boarding schools are global communities embracing international and diverse students and faculty. Most importantly, they offer an opportunity for international students to improve their English skills. They also help prepare students for school placement into top high school boarding schools through their secondary school placement departments. Through our many visits, we found that junior boarding schools are close-knit communities of teachers, administrators, mentors, educators and parents who provide an educationally transformative experience for middle-school age/pre-high school students through character development, a nurturing environment and understanding of multiple and different learning styles and building self-confidence.

Here is a list of top junior boarding schools:

  • Bement School
  • Cardigan Mountain School
  • Eaglebrook School
  • Fay School
  • Fessenden School
  • Hillside School
  • Indian Mountain School
  • North Country School

International Students: Applying to Top US. Boarding Schools

Top US Boarding Schools Dr Paul Lowe Admissions Advisor Educational Consultant

International students studying in the United States enhance their English skills, find it easier to enter U.S. universities and have improved career prospects. These are excellent reasons why international families seriously consider an American boarding school for their child.

Students who attend an American boarding school will obtain their F-1 student visa for school. When they graduate, schools will prepare the Form I-20 transfer documentation so there is little or no delay for them to start their college education in the United States if they so desire.

Education from a top boarding school will teach him or her the education and life skills he or she needs to succeed anywhere in the world.

Parents of international students choose boarding schools for their strong academics results and university prep programs that help students be accepted to top universities in the US. They also choose US boarding schools for the unique programs that cannot be found in high schools in their own country.

At Boarding School Admissions Consultants (BSAC), we provide admissions counseling and placement to assist students and their families prepare  EXCLUSIVELY  for admission to top U.S. boarding schools – including but not limited to Andover, Exeter, Choate, Loomis, Deerfield, Lawrenceville, St. Paul’s, Hotchkiss, Taft, etc. International parents who desire the best high school education for their children choose us.

College Admissions: What’s Your WOW FACTOR?

Wow_factor_College_BS_MD_Admissions_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Educational_Consultant_Advisor

Over the past 10 years, I have been talking in my webinars/seminars and writing in my blogs about the WOW factor and its importance in successful college admissions acceptance!

As college admissions becomes increasingly more competitive, admissions officers and committees look beyond high GPAs, high standardized test scores, ESEs (expensive summer experiences), tailored resumes and achievements and seemingly amazing, but generic essays. Dr. Lowe and his team continue to use the Wow Factor Admissions Concept with their clients.

Dr_Paul_Lowe_Admissions_Advisor_Independent_Educational_Consultant

What’s your personal “Wow Factor” that will make you stand out and get accepted to the college of your choice? It’s a factor that your admissions officer will look for as well as discuss with the other admissions committee members as to the reason you should be accepted.

What is a personal “Wow Factor”? Your charisma, confidence, motivation, initial impression, appearance, communication skills, attitude, self-esteem, authenticity, presence, etiquette, manners, harmony, rhythm and vibe all contribute to your wow factor.  Your wow factor is what makes you different! It’s your distinguishing trademark, your personal brand that must be placed in a positive light to a committee of six to ten diverse people to get accepted. It’s the kind of aura that is genuine, authentic and resonates. To truly identify your WOW factor, you need an outside perspective, a third party, that understands how admissions committees will review your character.

It takes Dr. Lowe and his team hours to weeks discover and months to cultivate a client’s WOW factor. After that, we develop strategies to convey that brand to Ivy League and highly selective colleges and BS/MD programs.

Our admissions strategies help applicants spotlight their unique characteristic(s) that make admissions officers say Wow! We want this student!”

College Applications 2021-2022 Will Be Up: Our Clients Will Be Ready

College_BS_MD_Admissions_race_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Educational_Consultant

College applications are increasing based on the Common Application registrations. College applications soared for the 2021-22 school year as thousands of students are taking advantage of the SAT test-optional policy.

As more and more students apply, it will be more competitive (especially for Ivy League and highly selective colleges and universities and BS/MD programs). In a USA Today article, “At selective schools “– where the acceptance rate is typically less than 50% – the spike was largest: Applications increased by an average of 21%.” Common App CEO Jenny Rickard said,

As a result, admissions officers/committees are assessing applicants by using a more holistic-team approach and assessing soft skills, often referred to as the “intangibles”. Students however bright: high GPA, SAT scores ACT scores (and in the case of BS/MD programs -research publications and hundreds of hours of shadowing) and polished resumes still lack the “je nais se quois” for acceptance to schools. Through our in-depth admissions strategies we develop and enhance our clients’ student profiles do that their “je nais se quois” is clearly conveyed in their WOW FACTOR.

U.S. News & World Report Best College Ranking: Top 20 in 2022

Diamond_prestige_reputation_Americas_Best_Colleges_Ivy League_colleges_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Admissions_Advisor_Independent_Educational_Consultant

The 2022 U.S. News & World Report Best College Ranking is out!  So many people say that it doesn’t matter where a student attends college as long as it’s a “good fit”. Really !!!!! Why are rankings used? Why are they so important? Because as a consumer-based society a college’s vision, supportive amenities, facilities, reputation, prestige and brand must meet our expectations. Since it is impossible for an applicant to experience everything a college has to offer prior to acceptance and enrollment, it is prudent to “kick the tires” by reviewing how colleges rank according to various criteria such as those provided by US News and other ranking services.

U.S. News rankings system rests on two pillar (1) Quantitative and qualitative measures that education experts have proposed as reliable indicators of academic quality and (2) U.S. News’ view of what matters in education.

Here are the top 20 colleges and universities.

1. Princeton University

2. Columbia University, Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology

5. Yale University

6. Stanford University and University of Chicago

8. University of Pennsylvania

9. California Institute of Technology, Duke University, Johns Hopkins University and Northwestern University

13. Dartmouth College

14. Brown University and Vanderbilt University and Washington University in St. Louis

17. Cornell University and Rice University

19. University of Notre Dame

20. University of California – Los Angeles

Boarding School Admissions Season 2021 -2022

Rejected_envelope_Boarding_Schools_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Admissions_Exeter_Andover

It is hard to believe that the 2021-2022 boarding school admissions season is just about here! Just 5 months ago our clients were receiving their acceptance notifications to schools like Exeter, Andover, Choate, Deerfield, Lawrenceville, Taft, Deerfield, Loomis, Hotchkiss and similar top schools.. Blog: Elite Boarding Schools Matter

Top US Boarding Schools Dr Paul Lowe Admissions Advisor Educational Consultant

We are receiving calls from parents who are inquiring about retaining the services of an educational consultant for direct admissions to the ninth grade or for reapplication (because their child was rejected or waitlisted last admissions cycle.  Many parents were quite surprised when their child was either outright rejected or placed on (perpetual) waitlists.

Many top boarding schools, including Exeter, are now writing parents to let them know that they remain fully enrolled for (2021-2022) and as such, will be unable to offer admission to any students from our waiting list.

It’s important to note that this admissions cycle (2021-2022) will be hypercompetitive (domestic applications are expected to be up by 20 percent). Why? Because more parents became aware of the benefits and multiple advantages of a boarding school education for their children. A published article in the New York Times, “The Boarding-School Boom” confirmed what we have been advising our clients who have been accepted to top boarding schools… there is now hyper-competition in boarding school admissions.  Additionally, because of the high rejection (and waitlists) last year, more students are reapplying for ninth grade as well as 10th grade spots.

Many parents who believed that their child would be off the waitlist had to have their children attend a public school for the 9th grade and reapply for the 9th or 10th grade. We advise parents to consider using a private educational consultant who can assess their child’s student profile, review last year’s application (to find mistakes), understand the changing nuances in admissions and who have long standing relationships with admissions professionals at schools.

It’s important that you will need to consider the admissions experts – Dr. Lowe and his team for successful admissions.

It’s Possible to Get into An Ivy League with a Low GPA

Impossible_low_GPAs_Accepted_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Admissions_Expert_Ivy_League

Each year we work with several clients who are admitted to Ivy League and BS/MD programs despite relatively low GPAs.  Yes!  You have read right…low GPAs.  This year, was significant because it was during the COVID-19 pandemic and there was an increase in the number of applicants to Ivy League and BS/MD programs.

While the average high school student with a GPA weighted that are accepted to Ivy League schools is 4.10, there is no minimum requirement. Of course, it’s rare for a student with a GPA below 3.9 to be accepted, but not impossible!

Ivy League schools rely upon a holistic and committee-team approach when evaluating applications to determine whether a student is a good fit for their institution. This approach allows admissions officers to obtain an in-depth picture of a student’s potential, character, and personal attributes that they will bring to the campus community if admitted.

Holistic_Approach-College-Admissions_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Ivy_League_Admissions_Advisor_Expert

So, how do our students with low GPAs get admitted to Ivies and BS/MD programs?  This is where character, the right attitude and accomplishments beyond the ordinary and expected achievements come in.  We work with the student to ensure that the correct picture of the student is apparent to the admissions officers.

Ultimately, elite colleges like the Ivies are interested in your potential. They want to know not only what you will contribute to the campus in terms of abilities and achievements, but also how you will mature and interact with others once you get there, and what positive impact you will eventually have on the world.

Regular Decision Notification Dates: 2021

laptop_rejected_on_college_admissions_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Admissions_Advisor_Independent_Educational_Consultant

Based on our research and discussions with directors/deans of admissions and admissions officers, regular decision applicants will be receiving their decision notifications in March and early April. It will be another highly competitive year!

Ivy League and highly selective colleges are already reporting a surge in regular decision applications.  The reason for this dramatic increase is likely multifactorial.  Perhaps, this is primarily because many students who took gap years and are now applying.  Additionally, more international students are applying and the prestige and brand of elite colleges is more coveted in a market of uncertainty.  Add to these facts many colleges have accelerated planned changes their standardized testing requirements since the start of the pandemic, which has encouraged more high school seniors to apply. 

WHAT HAS BEEN THE RESULT? Harvard surged by 42% to 57,000 applicants, Brown surged by 26% to 46,469 applicants and Princeton surged by 15% to 37,000 applicants.  The increase in applications has affected the highly competitive schools as well as the institutions that top students usually considered “safety schools”.  NYU surged by 20% to 100,000 applicants, UCLA surged by 28% to 139,000 applicants and Colgate surged by 102% to 17,392 applicants (last year Colgate had 8,582 applicants).

Ivy_League_Applications_2021_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Admissions_Advisor_Independent_Educational_Consultant

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? Within a month or so high school seniors will begin to discover, after all their hard work that they will be accepted, wait-listed or rejected. In this case, many will be rejected! Specifically, based on our projections, over 95% of students who applied to the Ivies will be rejected!

Here are regular decision notification dates (and approximate times) for Ivy League and highly selective colleges and universities:

It’s A New Admissions Year – 2021

2021_admissions_with_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Independent_Educational_Consultant_Advisor

Happy New Year! Welcome to Dr. Paul Lowe Admissions Expert Blog – 2021

Happy-new-year_2021_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Admissions_Expert_Advisor_Independent_Educational_Consultant

The past year has been full of uncertainty. As a consequence of the myriad of transitions, changes, adjustments and adaptations, now there’s a whole new admissions world. Education has moved from in-person to online learning and there has been an increase in the number of applications to top private day and boarding schools, Ivy League and highly selective colleges and universities and BS/MD programs! The College Board recently announced that it is eliminating the SAT subject tests and optional essay-writing section!

The one constant we have observed last year and the beginning of this year, is that parents want the best education for their children whether it’s K-12, college or graduate school.

As families navigate through these extraordinary and unparalleled admissions times, having an expert who can help make objective decisions is invaluable. As experts, we understand the fluctuating landscape and degrees of complexity in the current admissions scenarios so that students can avoid mistakes, stay focused and attain successful admissions decisions. Our knowledge-intelligence that results in our admissions success involves our ability to plan, to know how to adjust and when to change effectively.

Following last year’s admissions season, we heard from many parents and school counselors whose students applied ED to the Ivies and were rejected, yet we have clients who were accepted ED to Harvard, Yale, Brown, UPenn, Columbia and Cornell. And our Brown PLME acceptance rate was just amazing!  Brown PLME: Early Decision Results

Year after year, parents and fellow consultants ask us, what’s your secret? How do you provide stellar admissions results? It’s actually quite simple and conspicuously obvious….We are DIFFERENT!

Dr. Lowe and his team collectively, through their insight, foresight, proprietary- knowledge, wisdom and confidence, choose the best admissions strategies to be applied prudently for the best decision results – That’s our secret!

This year, many parents will be extremely happy because they will use our SECRET!

Each year, admissions policies and strategies change, so stay tuned for my upcoming, informative, helpful and thought-provoking admissions blogs!
