Date: 28th May 2012

The United States-India Educational Foundation (USIEF) Kolkata presented a special seminar for undergraduate students, their parents and school authorities at the American Center on May 4, 2012. A special presentation on 'Undergraduate Admissions: What The University of Chicago, Brown University, Bernard College and Columbia University expect from applicants' was made by Natalia I Ostrowski, senior admissions counsellor, The University of Chicago; Panetha Theodosia Nychis Ott, associate director of admission and director of international admission, Brown University and Carolyn Middleton, director of admissions, Barnard College. 

The seminar began with an introductory session by Panetha, who said, "College education is all about finding the right note." All three representatives spoke of the different curriculum at the institutes, the mode of teaching, the student teacher relationship, the activities and the co-curricular activities for the students on campus and also the housing system in their respective institutes. 

The main focus of the seminar was why students should study in US. The answer to that was excellence, global orientation, flexibility, financial depth and the choices offered. "It is all about the journey, the experience rather than the place," said Carolyn. 

The University of Chicago aims at "philosophy of the mind and the body," said Natalia. Brown University allows the students to choose their subjects of study according to their interest. Barnard College is in partnership with the Columbia University, it focuses on liberal arts and science education. Columbia University provides a wide variety of courses and focuses on intellectual diversity and the feeling of community. 

During the question answer round parents and students cleared their doubts. Questions related to medical schools, SAT scores, application procedures, and admission forms, criteria for selection and financial aid were asked and answered. 

"I am interested in Brown University and The University of Chicago, so I wanted to know more about it," said Shivani Agarwal, student, Modern High School for Girls. Her friend, Aastha Tibrewala, student of Modern High School for Girls said, "My doubts were cleared in the question answer round. It was very helpful."
