Join us to celebrate International Education Week with a screening of the documentary, Personal Statement.

Personal Statement follows three seniors (final year students) at Brooklyn high schools who are determined to get their entire classes to college, even though they aren't even sure they are going to make it there themselves. They are working as college counselors in their three schools because many of their friends have nowhere else to turn for support.

The following discussion with members of the EducationUSA Advising Center team will focus on the #guidancegap and similarities facing both international students and underprivileged students in the USA when it comes to what is confusing and unknown during the university application process.

 

This program will be in English.
