Two Letters of Recommendation For College & Internships
Many colleges and universities require letters of recommendation from applicants. The LI staff offers each of its program participants two letters of recommendation. Our team will work with each student over the course of 12-24 months, getting to know both the professional and personal ambitions of every student.
This personal connection allows college admission officials to see a non-academic side of the student and the benefits of extracurricular activities within the balanced life of the student. Written specifically for each individual, the recommendation is guaranteed to highlight the qualities of each student, while separating his or her application from the rest.
The letters of recommendation are written by LI staff, mentors and the business leaders with whom the student’s partner. The relationships between the students and these individuals are developed over time, allowing each to grow and learn about the other. This guarantees that each letter of recommendation highlights who the student is as an individual as well as what he/she has achieved by being a part of the International Business Alliance Program. Each letter showcases the problems the student worked on to solve and the lives transformed as a result.
In addition, each IBAP team of students will create a website showcasing their collaborative efforts with their business partner. Additionally, each team will have a video highlighting the experience as a whole and the lives they have helped to change forever.
Personalized College Acceptance Probabilities
When applying to colleges, most students make a list of their dream schools. A few people go a step further and look up the requirements for actually getting into these schools. Even then, the likelihood of being accepted into that number one remains a mystery.
We decided to take the guess work out of it. Our partners at Parchment have come up with a system personalized to each student as they get ready to begin their college journey.
Parchment takes the applicant’s desired schools along with test scores, GPA, and other pertinent information and compares it to the gold standard for being accepted into a chosen school. It shows percentages of who is admitted and provides comparable schools that have similar standards along with other school choices that may be more likely to grant admittance.

Exclusive College Admissions Training
Learning about college and actually experiencing college are two very different things. In July 2017, we will be hosting our summer program at Georgetown University. This is your chance to visit the campus of one of the top universities in the nation while learning about college life from a variety of speakers.
While learning about college is great, we thought it might be helpful to actually go through the process of how to GET ACCEPTED!
Most students don’t know what to include in their personal essays and how many extracurricular activities are needed in order to diversify their college applications. In order to help our students get into their dream schools, we have assembled a panel of admissions experts from Ivy league institutions to develop a curriculum aimed at helping you get noticed when you apply to college.
These experts will discuss the basics of filling out your application, content for inclusion and exclusion, and what items colleges love to see when looking at applications. College is hard enough–let us make getting into it a little easier.
