It is the dream of every student to graduate from a reputed college and earn well. Well, these colleges don't fail to live up to our expectations. Everyone desires to be a part of Ivy Schools. With an extremely well-built environment for all round development of a person, getting into them is also not easy. Only the best of best people can be a part of these colleges and every year they receive thousands of applications but only very few extremely outstanding students can be a part of these colleges.

These popular colleges definitely come with expenses which the middle-class families may find difficult to afford, but this does not mean we stop working towards our way to these colleges as they come up with scholarship programs which can help the students with skills and talent to be a part of them.

With extremely good scores and extracurricular, scholarships can help you with your financial needs. These colleges prefer hard-working students who are cut out for them and who will be capable of withholding the reputation of the university in the market.


What are Ivy League Schools?

The Ivy League is an American collegiate athletic conference comprising sports teams from eight private universities in the Northeastern United States. The term Ivy is used to refer these eight schools as a group of elite colleges beyond the sports context. The eight members are

1. Brown University
2. Columbia University
3. Cornell University
4. Dartmouth University
5. Harvard University
6. University of Pennsylvania
7. Princeton University
8. Yale University

Ivy League has connotations of academic excellence, selectivity in admissions and social elitism.

As their athletic teams began to attract more funding and gained popularity, the standards for student performance and admission became increasingly more demanding and rigorous. As a result, since the 1960s, these Ivy League Colleges gained a widespread reputation for producing graduates with high academic performances, social prestige, and promising career futures. Even today, these universities keep up their reputation, and they have a large presence among the top-ranked universities in the U.S.


Why Should You Care about Universities abroad?

They use a lot of resources to attract smart, hard-working, and career-minded students—like you--from all over the world. 

They strongly help students in their professional careers. Looking to several fields, extending from Law and Medicine to Electrical Engineering and Business.
Getting a degree from these schools will open up many doors for you, in terms of personality development and also in terms of professional development.

However, these schools also tend to be among the most expensive schools in the U.S., with tuition rates averaging between $55,000 and $60,000 per year. Luckily, they also offer great scholarships to their best students. You might be one of them!

Things to Know Before you apply to Foreign Universities 

Admission to these elite schools is highly competitive; you’ll need to meet standards that are higher than the ones at an average public university. Remember to check the admission requirement carefully, including test scores (SAT, GRE, LSAT, GPA), recommendations, extra-curricular activities, and other academic achievements. They matter!

You should keep in mind, though, that there are many universities in the U.S, U. K., Canada, Australia, Singapore that have high rankings and lower tuition costs. This is why, when searching for universities, you should really seek the perfect fit that suits your personal needs.

A good application needs to present a strong academic record, meaningful extracurricular activities, glowing letter of recommendations and outstanding application essays. 

However, it is important to not lose hope if things do not go your way as there are many factors affecting your chances of going there, some of which might be beyond your control. A degree from a highly reputed foreign university can be a great asset but it is not the only road to success so there is no reason for despair if you don't make it. However, one can always try hard, make the right decisions, think smart and add a feather to their cup by securing a place in foreign universities.
