  • The Ivy League consists of eight prestigious
    learning institutions in the northeastern United
    States Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Cornell,
    Columbia and Brown Universities, the University
    of Pennsylvania and Dartmouth College. Seven of
    these were established before the American
    Revolution. Which one was founded last?
  • Brown
  • Princeton
  • Cornell
  • Dartmouth

3
  • Cornell
  • Cornell University was founded April 27, 1865, in
    Ithaca, New York. Senator Ezra Cornell offered
    his farm as a site and half a million dollars as
    the initial endowment for the school. He also
    gave the school its motto "I would found an
    institution where any person can find instruction
    in any study". Incredibly, Cornell was the first
    Ivy League school to enroll women, beginning in
    1870.

4
  • Which Ivy League school, established in 1754, was
    originally named King's College, after receiving
    a Royal Charter by King George II of Great
    Britain?
  • Yale
  • Princeton
  • Brown
  • Columbia

5
  • Columbia
  • The school was renamed Columbia College in 1784
    and Columbia University in 1896. It is located in
    the borough of Manhattan, in New York City. The
    American Revolution was not friendly to Columbia.
    All programs were suspended from 1776-1783 as
    control of the area changed hands, and the campus
    was used as a military hospital by American and
    British forces during these years. Former U.S.
    Presidents Theodore Roosevelt and Franklin Delano
    Roosevelt attended Columbia but did not graduate.
    Barack Obama is the first President of the United
    States to graduate from Columbia University.

6
  • Computers are an integral part of a university
    student's life. Which Ivy League school made it
    mandatory for every student to own a personal
    computer in 1991?
  • Dartmouth
  • Harvard
  • Cornell
  • University of Pennsylvania

7
  • Dartmouth
  • Dartmouth prides itself on its high level of
    technological advancement. In 2001, it became the
    first Ivy League institution to offer complete
    wireless internet access in all buildings and
    most outdoor spaces, providing over 1,400 access
    points. "Blitzmail", is an e-mail network created
    by Dartmouth. On campus, there are over one
    hundred terminals in place for Blitzmail use. The
    students use it for communication just as much as
    cell phones.

  • Liberal arts colleges are small institutions
    focusing on teaching undergraduates that are not
    well-known to the general public. What three East
    Coast institutions were the three top liberal
    arts colleges in the United States according to
    U.S. News World Report's "America's Best
    Colleges - 2007"?
  • Williams, Amherst, and Swarthmore
  • MIT, Stanford, and the U. of California -
    Berkeley
  • Princeton, Harvard, and Yale
  • Reed, Oberlin, and Sarah Lawrence

9
  • Williams, Amherst, and Swarthmore
  • Liberal arts colleges are four year colleges
    which generally have few if any graduate programs
    or professional degree programs. Princeton,
    Harvard, Yale, MIT, Stanford, and the University
    of California - Berkeley are in the National
    University category in U.S. News and World
    Report's college rankings. Reed, Oberlin, and
    Sarah Lawrence are all excellent liberal arts
    colleges with politically liberal student bodies
    but did not rank among the top three.

10
  • Many excellent schools are not well-known by the
    general public. What were the three top
    engineering programs at institutions without
    doctoral programs in the United States according
    to U.S. News World Report's "America's Best
    Colleges - 2007"?
  • MIT, Stanford, and University of California -
    Berkeley
  • Grinnell, Oberlin, and Macalester
  • Ohio State, Michigan State, and University of
    Florida
  • Harvey Mudd, Rose-Hulman, and Cooper Union

11
  • Harvey Mudd, Rose-Hulman, and Cooper Union
  • The Massachusetts Institute of Technology,
    Stanford University, and the University of
    California - Berkeley were cited as the three top
    engineering programs at universities that offered
    doctoral degrees.

13
Did you know?
  • Located in Boulder, Colorado, Naropa University
    is based on Nalanda University. Nalanda
    flourished in India from the 5th to the 12th
    centuries. At Nalanda University, Buddhist
    philosophy and the discipline of meditation
    provided the environment in which scholars,
    artists and healers from many Asian countries and
    religious traditions came to study and debate.
    Nalanda is known for its joining of intellect and
    intuition, and for the atmosphere of mutual
    appreciation and respect among different
    contemplative traditions. This was the
    inspiration for the development of Naropa
    University.

  • How they compare with the typical profile of
    accepted students
  • Recommendation letters
  • Typically English/Math, also Humanities/Science
  • Short answers and essays
  • Activities and interests
  • How a student presents him/herself

37
Standardized Testing the tests (US)
  • Standardized testing is an important factor in
    admission of using new procedures at most
    colleges and universities, however, they
    generally count less than the curriculum and
    grades.
  • SAT Reasoning Measures aptitude and potential
  • SAT Subject Many schools require three SAT
    Subject tests
  • English, Math IC or IIC and a 3rd of your
    choice
  • ACT Measures actual learned knowledge
  • TOEFL Test of English as a Foreign Language
  • required of international students by a large
  • number of universities

38
Standardized Testing which test?
  • Different philosophies
  • Some colleges have made standardized testing
    optional (Bates, Bowdoin, Dennison, Dickinson,
    Drew, Franklin and Marshall, Goucher, Guilford,
    Lake Forest, U Miami, Mount Holyoke, Providence,
    Saint Johns, Union).
  • Some will not require SAT or ACT if you submit
    SAT Subject Tests (Connecticut College, Hamilton
    College, Middlebury College).
  • Most schools will give you a choice SAT or ACT.
  • Some scholarship programs will require specific
    SAT or ACT.
  • For more information on which schools have made
    SAT/ACT optional, see www.fairtest.org/university/
    optional.

39
Standardized Testing which test?
  • It doesnt hurt to take both.
  • If uncertain take each one once, then retake
    the one you like better.
  • Remember
  • SAT Reasoning measures aptitude
  • ACT measures acquired knowledge
  • Many students who do not test well on
    standardized exams may do better on the ACT.
  • Compare school success with success on the SAT.
    If you are an A student but scoring in the lower
    500s on the SAT, you might consider taking the
    ACT as well.
  • You can always elect to take the ACT and not send
    your scores.

40
Standardized Testing the TOEFL
  • A note about the TOEFL
  • Increasingly, the more competitive universities
    will want international students to take the
    TOEFL no matter what independently of whether
    the student has studied in an English-language
    school since kindergarten, or whether the student
    is in IB HL English.
  • Students are encouraged to take the TOEFL before
    the end of 11th grade. This will take off some
    of the pressure in 12th grade.

41
Standardized Testing SAT Prep?
  • Should you take an SAT Preparation course?
    Consider the following
  • Is the SAT optional?
  • How competitive is the university?
  • How did you do on the PSAT?
  • Add a 0 to your PSAT score to get a rough idea
    of how you would do on the SAT
  • 50/50/50 on the PSAT would be more or less
    equivalent to 500/500/500 on the SAT
  • Several options
  • ASM-based SAT Prep course Alpha Review
  • Spring session leads to May exam.
  • Fall session is intensive and leads to October
    exam.
  • Outside SAT Prep course e.g. Kaplan, private
    tutoring

42
Typical Testing Plan
  • 11th grade
  • ACT with Writing April 4, 2009
  • SAT Reasoning May 2, 2009
  • SAT Subject June 6, 2009
  • TOEFL offered monthly take before end 11th
    grade
  • 12th grade
  • SAT Reasoning October 2009
  • SAT Subject November 2009
  • SAT Dec 2009/Jan 2010
  • ACT with Writing December 2009
  • TOEFL monthly

You can take the ACT without writing, but if
you will likely be submitting only the ACT and
not the SAT, you should plan to take the ACT with
Writing.
43
Final notes on standardized testing
  • HOW MANY TIMES CAN I TAKE THE SAT?
  • No more than 4 times, typically 2 Reasoning tests
    and 3 different Subject tests taken only once
    each.
  • WHICH SCORES WILL THE COLLEGES SEE?
  • Default All scores for all sittings are sent,
    and colleges will pick the highest in each
    sitting for each subject area
  • e.g. May 09 590 CR 650 M 630 Wr
  • Oct 09 650 CR 620 M 680 Wr
  • NEW Mar 09 Score Choice Allows you to select
    the scores from a particular sitting
  • e.g. May 09 590 CR 650 M 630 Wr
  • Oct 09 650 CR 620 M 680 Wr

    campus have a much better idea of the kind of
    school they want.
  • There are organizations that offer tours, such
    as The Princeton Review, and College-Visits.com
  • Virtual Tours
  • www.campustours.com free online
  • www.ecampustours.com free online
  • www.collegiatechoice.com (walking tours, 15 per
