Our College Club progra at Chez Alpha Books, is dedicated and passionate about supporting students throughout their university search with a focus on identifying a quality study opportunity that best meet their academic, financial, social and cultural requirements. Together we assist them to navigate their way through that often complex and incomprehensible application process, support their writing a strong personal statement, assist with the submission of required documents and educate them on whether they should take the SAT or ACT. With experienced instructors in house, we also provide SAT, TOEFL and GMAT test prep. And when required, the overwhelming transcript evaluation process is addressed. What is unique about our process is that while it would be easy to do everything for the student, our objective is for the student to best learn how to successfully navigate through the admissions process.
Once the application is submitted and the acceptance letter is in hand, we exhale. While the visa process looms ahead, given the fact that we have worked closely with our students, we are confident that they understand many of the factors that will influence the decision to grant them the visa. The financial documents and transcripts submitted in order to obtain the I-20 are a first step in the process. Certainly we will take the time to review questions that may be asked, however dress, communication, attitude and ethics were all discussed throughout the application process. When the day comes, the student will enter the embassy seemingly alone. They are not really alone because we prepared them as much as possible.. No, we don’t guarantee the visa, but we do work to empower our students sufficiently so that during the visa interview process they are their own best guarantee.
