College Talks February: Defining Your X-Factor

February 25 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm JST

With college admissions more competitive than ever before, crafting your high school profile to really stand out is increasingly essential. A great GPA, excellent test scores, and strong leadership are not enough to distinguish your application from the hundreds of thousands of students who also have all of those things. How can you ensure your application is memorable when admissions officers are only going to spend 8-10 minutes learning about you? In this special seminar, Tokyo Academics’ Founder and CEO, Neil Nguyen, will share tips and insights on how to level up your high school profile and ensure that you stand out to admissions officers.

The talk will include:

  • Neil’s insights from over 15 years of college application experience on what admissions officers are looking for.
  • Successful strategies and TA alumni case studies that illustrate what can and needs to be done.
  • An open opportunity to ask your questions and receive concrete answers.

An intentional, ambitious strategy is necessary to succeed in this increasingly competitive college admissions environment. Do you have a plan? Register today and learn how to brainstorm, identify, and refine what makes you unique. Spots for this event are limited. Sign up today!
