Get Accepted at a University in the United States- 3
Lindsay: This is an All Ears English Podcast, Episode 22: Meeting Monday.
Gabby: Welcome to the All Ears English Podcast, where you’ll finally get real, native English conversation. Now here are your hosts, Lindsay McMahon, the ‘English Adventurer’ and Gabby Wallace, the ‘Language Angel,’ coming to you from Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
Lindsay: In today’s episode, you’ll learn our top three tips for getting into the university that you want in the United States.
Lindsay: So Gabby today we’re talking about the top three tips that you have for, to help students get into universities in the United States.
Gabby: Yeah. I’ve been teaching this class called “The College Application.” It’s all about applying to college. It’s for international students, (um), who want to go to the college of their dreams in the US.
So that’s what I do is I help them out with applying. So I wanted to share some of these tips with you, our listeners, today.
Lindsay: Awesome! So the first tip is to clean up your social media accounts. Can you say more about that?
Gabby: Absolutely. So Kaplan just did a study where they surveyed three or four hundred college admissions counselors and about 30% said that they do check applicants online.
Lindsay: (Ah!) Seems high. Seems like a lot of people.
Gabby: Yeah. Well and you have to realize they don’t have time to do this for every applicant, but if there’s (there are) any doubts or if they need more information, it could happen, so it’s better to be on the safe side and check your name online. (Um) Google your name, check (uh) your Facebook profile and make sure that you have the privacy settings where you want them to be and just make sure there’s no unflattering information on you out there and on the Internet.
Lindsay: Definitely. And the next one is to stay on top of deadlines and to have some kind of a checklist or a system in your calendar where you can actually hit those deadlines.
Gabby: Yeah. There’s (there are) so many deadlines to keep track of (um) if you’re applying to several schools, if you’re taking several standardized tests, maybe TOEFL, SAT, or ACT. (Uh) there’s (there are) just so many deadlines and things to do, so it’s a good idea to make a checklist and then put those items into your calendar.
Lindsay: Okay. Great. And the last one is to make sure you find the right fit in the school that you choose.
Gabby: Super important. I know that a lot of students would love to go to an Ivy League school, (you know) the school of their dreams, maybe like right here in Boston we have Harvard, MIT, (um) Boston University, Boston College. We have so many great universities, but just because the university has a high ranking or a great reputation doesn’t automatically mean it’s going to be a good fit for you. So you need to ask a lot of questions and find out about the university. Find out about its culture, maybe even go visit that school so that you can see firsthand what it’s like because college in the US is not just about taking classes and getting good grades. It’s really about that social environment. You’re gonna (going to) network. You’re going to take part in extracurricular activities, maybe live in a dormitory. So it’s so much more. You wanna (want to) make sure that you feel like it’s the right fit for you.
Lindsay: Yeah for sure. So take some time with that and just make sure that you’ve got the right place.
Gabby: Yeah. Cool. So those are my top three tips. (Um) just briefly explained right here, but I actually have a lot more information about each tip and actually I have several more tips about getting into a university. (Um) I just launched the college application class on Udemy.com that has several video lectures, hours of material, (um) videos and text, and audio interviews with experts. So if you really want to learn more about making your best successful college application go to udemy.com. That’s u-d-emy.com and you can search for The College Application by Gabby Wallace.
Lindsay: Sounds great. Thanks for the tips Gabby.
Gabby: Yeah. You’re welcome. And (um), next episode on Tuesday, we’re gonna (going to) get together and talk about some of the vocabulary that were used in this episode just to make sure that (um) you are able to use it in your conversations.
Lindsay: Yeah, so come hang out with us tomorrow.
Gabby: Cool see you then.
Lindsay: Hey. So I’ve heard that a lot of students get stuck at the intermediate level and they’re looking for a way to push through, break through to that advanced fluent level of English. One of the best ways that you can do this is to listen to the podcast we have here but then also check your listening by reading our transcripts. (Um) it’s the best way to get the most out of your All Ears English experience. So you can find all of our transcripts, everything we say, word for word, on our website.
