With schools accepting less than 10% of students in a particular cohort, the competition to secure an admit to study abroad at a top university has become even more fierce. For the class of 2018, Harvard University will admit 5.9% of applicants; Princeton will admit 7.28% and University of Pennsylvania will admit a generous 9.9% of its applicants. However, it is important to not let the statistics distract you from your goal.
If you are a college applicant, looking to study abroad, here are few practices which successful ReachIvy applicants have adopted in the past to convert their study abroad dreams into reality.

These are the top ten successful study abroad application strategies:

1) Start early. Getting a head start is the best advantage to have – be mindful of the time and energy needed.
2) Crack the GMAT/GRE. Keep adequate while planning your study abroad application for a second attempt in case your scores are not as expected.
3) Research your schools — it is imperative to find the right fit.
4) Adhere to deadlines. There is no recourse once you miss an application date.
5) Consolidate your finances to fund your program.
6) Find your most productive time of day to ideate.
7) Falling and getting up is going to be a part of this journey.
8) Don’t fabricate your story. Schools want to know the real you.
9) Get help. It is always helpful even for the most proficient writers to get another perspective.
10) Edit, edit, edit and edit some more.

Dream big. Plan well. Hustle hard. Success will be yours!
