The Top Ivy League Winning Tips for High Schoolers – 2023

January 31 03:36 2023

Over the past decade, Caroline Linger and her small team of counselors have assisted high school students in gaining admission to over 2000 of the United States Top 50 Universities and Colleges. Among these schools are 145 Ivy League, 389 University of California, and other prestigious institutions.

And here is the No.1 rule of their incredible success: “To win the top tier institutions, you need to start doing things you don’t see anyone else doing.”

This is the primary tactic for distinguishing oneself from the hundreds of thousands of academically qualified applicants who compete each year for a limited number of spots at the nation’s most prestigious educational institutions. The Ivies and other top 20 schools are always excited to learn about extraordinary achievements that they have rarely or never witnessed. “Top schools are looking for students who stand out from the crowd,” so if you are involved in an activity that many of your classmates are also interested in, this is probably not going to be an activity that will get you noticed as a top applicant. “Top schools are looking for students who stand out from the crowd.”

One of the main reasons why most students with the highest GPAs and the best Standardized scores fail to win the top universities and colleges is because their extracurricular profile is seen as average. “Showcase those activities that are uncommon; one example was a student who showcased her skills as a prolific Wikipedia editor; she won UPenn, JHU, and Caltech. Another built a low-cost prototype solution for the early detection of amblyopia (an eye disorder); he got into Stanford. Standing out in one way is the key to getting in.”

Caroline states that another reason is often that high school counselors and teachers do not know their students well enough, so they write only average recommendations. “To win the top schools, students need their teachers to write recommendations that suggest they are exceptional. They need to be one-of-a-kind or Outstanding. However, for most, this can be a challenging process. Planning to tackle any potential issue with recommendations should start early in eleventh grade and continue during and after the Junior Year summer break.”

Students at Ivy Central are encouraged to write about something that has genuine significance to them and that they believe would be original. They also advise against using the same supplementary essays for similar prompts at different schools. This is due to the fact that prompts are not always as similar as they initially appear.

Caroline and her team have written some great content that every parent and student should read: “Planning for College First & Last Steps,”Writing your letter of continued interest after being deferred/waitlisted,” and “What’s an Extracurricular Spike?” are some of the most popular items.
