More About Beyond The States:
Hi there, I work with Jennifer Viemont, founder of Beyond The States and author of College Beyond the States: European Schools That Will Change Your Life Without Breaking the Bank. Jennifer helps American students circumvent the U.S. college admission rat race by educating them on the process of earning their college degrees in Europe. American students can save tens of thousands of dollars by pursuing degrees at English-language programs at excellent European schools. But there are more incentives for studying abroad. Jennifer argues that American “holistic” admissions is really flawed and allows for variables like legacy status, financial status, whether parents donate to the university, and whether the student is an athlete to be considered in the admission decision. At European schools, admissions decisions are based 100% on whether or not a student meets a defined set of criteria. Jennifer writes about the many differences between the American and European university systems on her blog at: https://beyondthestates.com/category/admissions/
If you’re looking to interview an expert to provide commentary on studying abroad, the recent American college admission scandals, or how European schools make the application process less stressful for students and their families, please keep Jennifer in mind.
