Student Journey  |  This month

Read about B.K’s journey in developing his personal story and applying to Ivy League universities.

Pre-Uni School



B.K. studied at an international high school in Korea.




B.K. worked with IvyPrep to improve his chances of gaining admissions into an Ivy League university. He obtained a high IB score along with having impressive leadership roles in his school. His academic record was consistent and reflected his passion for STEM. Beyond school, he was involved in community projects and obtained medals in national competitions for coding, mathematics, and sports.

B.K. was confident with his academic profile but needed help with creating compelling applications. He was initially uncomfortable talking about himself which was reflected in his writing. We helped him overcome his initial hesitations through rigorous self-reflection and worked with him to establish a strong story in his writing. Strategizing on structure, content, and tone was crucial to ensure that his supplement essays reflected his compassion and unique insights. His hard work paid off when he received his acceptance to his dream university!
