6.1s well informed and ready to apply Stateside

Eager 6.1s gave up their long leave to attend the Fulbright Commission’s increasingly popular College Day. This is the forum for those who think they may like to study in the US to get a taste of US college life and for those who know they wish to study across the pond it is a chance to refine their search by quizzing the International Admissions Officers of the schools and colleges (universities in the UK!) they are interested in applying to. Over 300 institutions were represented, from the Ivy League Colleges to small specialist technical schools such as the New York Film School, with just about everything in-between. The students found the process informative and exciting but were a little overwhelmed by the choice. However, everyone managed to utilise their maps to make targeted assaults and they feel better informed as to the opportunities open to them Stateside and are now ready to take the next steps towards application.
