After pursuing rigorous undergraduate degree programs at both Wellesley College and USC, one of our students sought admission to some of the most selective and impactful MBA graduate programs in the country. Our student, Sarah Ifrah, found her business school admissions process eye-opening, transformative, challenging, and rewarding. Sarah was happy to share her story with the Rainbow family, providing us with a generous and illuminating interview about her process. See below for her unique insights, personally-tailored preparation experiences, key observations, bold choices, and advice for other students seeking admissions to their dream schools.
There are many times in any student’s life when it may be tempting to fall into the dark cycle of comparing oneself to others: that fateful moment when graded exams are handed back in class, during tryouts for athletic teams or stage productions, when early decisions from colleges start rolling in, when ISEE scores come out, or homecoming nominations present themselves, etc.
It is no secret that applying to college entails a considerable amount of hard work. With all of the research, supplemental essays, school visits, networking, naviance surveys, and testing, the process can seem like taking on a full-time job.
One of the most exciting parts of the college admissions season is exploring the options of where to apply. This, in turn, can also be the most terrifying part.
Your students’ college courses have been selected, the extra long bed sheets for the dorm have been purchased, the car is packed, and off they go! For many parents the last 18 years have been about teaching and preparing their children for this very moment.
Supplemental essays separate the golden college applications from the less-than-brilliant ones. A wonderful supplemental essay can provide insight to a student’s deeply held passions and curiosities.
This spring has been a tremendously inspiring journey for everyone in the Rainbow Family. After months of hard work, preparation, some tears, and a great deal of self discovery, our seniors are now ready to bid farewell to their high schools and begin anew as college freshmen.
Arielle’s story has inspired everyone here at the Rainbow Family. She recently gained admissions to 8 universities and even received a personal email from the Tulane admissions officer who reviewed her application (and offered her a $20,000 yearly scholarship), saying that her overall portfolio/personal statement was one of the best he had seen all year.
