ADDING PERSPECTIVE TO THE CURRENT HIGHER EDUCATION OUTLOOK
ARE TOP NOTCH WORLD AMERICAN UNIVERSITIES A LA CARTE THE MOST REWARDING R.O.I. LIQUIDITY ASSET FOR FAMILIES?
“BECAUSE MY FUTURE MATTERS.”
Perhaps the most crucial decision in the life of a young student, especially in the current times we live in, is the choice of education and, consequently, the university they choose. Here are several significant considerations for your review:
- How important are the previous educational decisions that a family must make to gain access to a top-tier university worldwide in America?
- What type of secondary education and high school would be advisable to choose? The Spanish education system, European options (French, German, Italian, Swiss, British schools, etc.)? Or perhaps an American high school?
Based on our experience of over 30 years, we can categorically confirm that it does not make an essential difference for top universities in the United States whether one has taken the British IGCSEs/A-Levels, the IB (Spanish, English, or hybrid), or the Dual Bachelor’s. Rather, we can assert that these curricula have irrelevant value for American universities.
The paramount factor to consider is that the subjects taken in the pre-university cycles should be as demanding and rigorous as possible to add value to the academic record, thus enhancing the overall assessment by university admissions committees.
COMPREHENSIVE SAT PREPARATION
The SAT is, in reality, the most important worldwide test for admission, especially for obtaining substantial funding and scholarships without the need for repayment, granted by top US universities to students from around the world. Due to factors related to the allocation of these scholarships based on high SAT scores to international students and the fact that the UK no longer grants scholarships to European students nor provides loans for studying, there has been a significant increase in admission applications to American universities from highly talented students worldwide.
For your information, our company has the highest SAT scores in Europe, thanks to our team of specialized tutors and graduates from Harvard and Princeton.
UNIVERSITY HOLISTIC EVALUATION APPROACH
We understand that an optimal SAT result carries a weight of more than 60 to 70% in the decisions made by prestigious top US universities regarding student admissions and the allocation of funding and scholarships. It makes sense that admissions officers at these universities, faced with the almost impossible challenge of deciphering the academic rigor of subjects from every region worldwide, closely scrutinize the results of a standardized exam that maintains the same level of difficulty and rigor whether taken in New York, Singapore, or Madrid.
Parameters measured by the SAT exam:
- Broadly measures general intelligence.
- Agility in analyzing and solving problems.
- Critical reasoning ability.
- Verbal and mathematical reflective skills.
- Evaluates students’ preparedness by focusing on skills, vocabulary, and knowledge to be used in college.

Top American universities are funded through private donations from individuals and entities. The total sum of accumulated contributions is referred to as the «endowment» and is public knowledge. Being non-profit institutions, they are tax-exempt and invest all these resources in assisting brilliant students from all corners of the world and hiring the best international faculty to ensure America is always leading in innovation and, therefore, economic development. This ultimately allows graduates of these prestigious top world universities to have a promising future in all aspects of their lives.
Therefore, 4 or 5 years of education at a top US university represents THE MOST SIGNIFICANT NET INVESTMENT THAT A FAMILY COULD MAKE for a more sustainable future that could extend throughout an entire lifetime.
One of the differentiating factors that globally distinguishes top US universities is precisely the progressive, fast, efficient, adaptable, and close connection between theory and practice, far surpassing other global realities. There is very little gap between the reality of everyday life and the business world with the university itself, as they progress in tandem. In other countries, this gap is extensive over time, which is why when students graduate and apply for jobs, they need a considerable adaptability period to become productive assets for companies that require individuals ready to contribute immediately, not with a delayed reality.
