NYU's Internatinal Admissions Officer visited Seoul Scholars International on May 30th.
She talked about test scores for admission and mentioned that students are not required to submit SAT/ACT scores if they submit SAT II subject test scores or 3 AP scores end of their 11th grade year. NYU requires two recommendation letters. One from an academic counselor and one from a teacher.
One of the most important parts of the application is answering "Why NYU" and students must answer this question after carefully thinking about why they must attend NYU and must be NYU specific. She also talked about utilizing the career office, as they prepare students for internships and interviews after they graduate.
The visit was very informative for our students and they asked questions about different majors offered, difference between the NY campus and Shanghai campus, and admitted student profile.
George Mason University Korea visited Seoul Scholars on May 27th for an information session. The students who attended were able to learn about the programs offered at George Mason Korea, along with its curriculum, career opportunities, professors, tuition, and application process.
George Mason Korea offers seven Majors, which are Accounting, Finance, Management (all three under the School of Business), Economics, Global Affairs, Conflict Analysis and Resolution, and Computer Game Design. The admissions officer went over each major and its programs, and mentioned that starting from next year, all students will be taking their final year of college at the main campus located in Fairfax, Virginia. Every semester, professors from the main campus make rotations the Korean campus as well, ensuring that the students at the Korean campus are offered a high level of education.
Students who are interested in applying to George Mason Korea need to submit proof of English Proficiency with test scores of minimum 80 on TOEFL iBT, IELTS over 6.5, or SAT Evidence Based Reading of at least 500. SAT/ACT scores and teacher recommendations are optional but highly recommended. The latest deadline to apply for the Fall Semester is in June, so students have more time to prepare and submit their applications for George Mason Korea. The admissions officer also mentioned that the graduation certificate from George Mason Korea appears exactly the same as the one from the main campus.
The information session was helpful for our students, and helped them to learn more about American postsecondary education options available in Korea.
International Admissions Officers from University of Chicago and Johns Hopkins University visited Seoul Scholars International on May 14th. University of Chicago Admissions Officer mentioned that there are over 50 majors and over 40 minors offered. Some of the popular majors students choose are Economics, Math, English, Computer Science, and Political Science. However, many students come in as undeclared and they have until their second year to decide their major. Until then, they can explore and take fun classes such as Russian Literature. At University of Chicago, they have a counselor that will help with finding internships and even help with interviews.
John's Hopkins Admissions Officer mentioned that they truly value hands-on learning and research. Students can apply for research grants and can get around ten thousand dollars per year for four years.
Both schools have mentioned that they would need an official transcript and ACT or SAT test scores when students apply. Furthermore, TOEFL and IELTS scores are also required for international students. They mentioned the importance of personal statement and letters of recommendation since they explain students' personalities and character.
Overall, the info session was very helpful for our students and they asked questions about getting scholarships, making their schedules, and summer courses offered at University of Chicago and John's Hopkins.

SSLAS MUN is a student-organized and student-led MUN conference hosted by Seoul Scholars International. This event gave an opportunity to students ranging from elementary to university students from 10 schools in Seoul, Incheon, Daejeon, Gimhae, and North Jeolla Province to share their awareness of global issues and learn from the diverse perspectives of countries. In this event, students were able to roleplay delegates of multiple countries and of UN committees.
On the day of the conference, a total of 33 people showed up with smiles on their faces. Participants took part in either one of the two committees: DISEC (Disarmament and International Security Committee) and UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization).
Delegates in DISEC dealt with the measures of administering nuclear dismantlement and advocating nuclear nonproliferation in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. Likewise, UNESCO debated under the theme of preserving cultural heritage in areas of conflict.
From this experience, students were able to learn the true value of MUN. “I felt like I’m really the delegate and responsible for the country I am assigned to”, said Harry Park, a chair and swing delegate in this event.
The SSI MUN conference turned out to be a success for delegates, chairs and members of the secretariat. “It was my utmost honor to serve everyone as the Secretary General of the first annual MUN conference held at SSI.
I am proud that delegates, chairs, and staffs immersed into their roles throughout the 10 hours within each of their committee chamber,” stated Heejin Kang, the Secretary General.

University of Minnesota, Indiana-Bloomington, Rutgers
Representatives from University of Minnesota, University of Indiana-Bloomington, and Rutgers visited Seoul Scholars International on March 11th. They went over how to balance school and social life as well as making schedules and decisions on their own. Additionally, all three reps have stated that extracurricular activities are important. However, they recommend staying in one or two clubs for all four years and becoming an officer rather than joining 5 clubs. Furthermore, they made the session fun for our students by taking surveys on menti.com and talked about majors and schools famous celebrities graduated from. At the end of the session, the reps went over essay tips and topics to avoid. They told students to avoid writing about family members and sporting events, as too many students write about those topics. It is crucial to stay away from typical topics and they encouraged students to write something readers cannot know from simply reading the application.
Seoul Scholars International students took yearbook photos on March 8. All staff members and faculty arrived at school early and set up the photo zone and adjusted the lightings.
