College Admissions — The 5 Most Important Things You Need to Know as a High School Junior

Short introduction of Admissions Hero: 

Admissions Hero is a US college consulting and test prep firm consisting of top tier college students from some of the hardest schools to get accepted to (e.g. Ivy League, Duke, MIT, Stanford, Caltech, UChicago, and more). Over the past 3 years, we have helped our students gain multiple acceptances to every top 30 university. 74% of our students get accepted to an Ivy League or top 10 school, and 85% of our students get accepted to a top 20 school. Over 91% of our clients would recommend our services their friends and families.

Introduction of Speakers:

Johan Zhang was named salutatorian of his graduating class with a 4.0 GPA and scored a 2400 (first take) on his SAT. In addition to taking 11 AP classes throughout high school, Johan also self-studied 4 AP tests during his junior year. He is the winner of various awards, including the National AP Scholar Award, the National Merit Scholarship, and the Nordstrom $10K national scholarship. Outside of the classroom, Johan served as Class Vice President for 3 years and President for 1 year. Also, he co-founded a music charity that has donated over $12,000. Johan was elected Boys Nation Senator by 976 of his peers at New Jersey Boys State. As 1 of 98 Senators nation-wide, Johan was flown down to DC to meet various famous politicians, including President Barack Obama in the White House.
