Look into the future…

Why do I post these events every Friday? Because I know that the process of applying to study in the U.S. is daunting, and getting financial aid can seem impossible, and we’ve all heard horror stories about visa rejections. But information is power – the more research you’ve done and options you’ve explored, the more you’re setting yourself up for success – and free webinars like these are some of the resources you can take advantage of to empower yourself.

And just so you know, I don’t have any relationship with these organizations offering webinars, and I don’t even know if they’ll be good or bad or indifferent. My goal is just to make you aware that they’re out there as a thing to take advantage of.
