This is an article of not in excess of 650 words that acquaints you with the colleges you apply to. Consider it your assertion. It talks about your starting point and character. It directs what Americans will think about you. It very well may be your benefit or misfortune. Numerous understudies ignore significance and think SAT scores are more significant. Indeed, here are a few realities.

Until 2016 when the SAT was changed, far the greater part of Harvard candidates got 2300 or more and among them, thousands got wonderful scores and were valedictorians in secondary school. However, you will discover some who will neglect to get confirmation there while a youngster from no place who got 2100 on SAT gets an affirmation.

At the point when tests approach, you ought to be arranged mentally, intellectually and actually. These tests are extremely tough, stricter than the KCSE. In the event that you drop an elastic and endeavour to pick it without consent from the invigilators, you should say farewell to the Pursuit of happiness.

5. Apply for Grants.

Passing up this urgent step has seen numerous potential Elite level understudies free their possibilities. Most Kenyan understudies perform well. Notwithstanding, recollect that we are contending with understudies from around the world. Japanese and Chinese who are known for being insane savvy are in the race as well.

In this way, not all understudies will get completely fledged confirmations in American colleges. As an individual, you really want to plan for just awful. Begin looking for grants. Check the college sites for interesting grants and perceive how you can work on your possibilities. Their expenses are super-insane.

So rather than discarding your Kenyan life, keep on maintaining it. Devour the Kenyan experience with a major spoon, as a matter of fact. Accept President Trump could impel regulations against global understudies and render it unthinkable for Kenyans to concentrate on in the USA. Swallow the way that it isn't programmed that you will go. This will give you harmony. I wish I never needed to record this point on paper if you catch my drift.

There is life in Kenya, east or west, home is awesome. Indeed, even those understudies that go to concentrate on abroad will get back to complete their vocation dreams here.

7. Trust in yourself.

I picked this from the book The ability to appreciate people on a profound level. The force of the psyche mind is impossible. Say these words consistently; 'I will come to Harvard, I will seek after my college degree at Stanford.' Supplant with the college you want. I won't ensure that it will guarantee you confirmation, however assuming you accept, you could make it despite everything. What you feed your psyche is what you get. Companion, this is your time, you can do this.

At any rate, that is all I have until further notice yet I will keep on including more data this piece as I research. Keep close by for more.

I welcome every one of the people who came to American Colleges to contribute through the remarks segment with the goal that you can move more youngsters to accomplish what you did.
