A Crimson official says the presentation this weekend will be a great opportunity for Kiwi students to learn the ropes of applying to Ivy League colleges and other top US universities. “The session will break down the process of enrolling into tertiary level education at elite schools like Stanford, Harvard, MIT, and beyond.” 

Crimson’s Chief Operating Officer Arkesh Patel underscores the importance of studying at a top US college.  “Attending a prestigious university can significantly influence your career and personal growth opportunities,” says Arkesh, a Westlake Boys High School alum who went on to study at the University of Cambridge in the UK and pursued an MBA with distinction at Harvard Business School.

In New Zealand, Crimson students have significantly increased their chances of an acceptance letter. During the 2023/24 admissions cycle, Kiwi students working with Crimson received an array of offers from top-tier universities, says a company official. 

“These included 13 Ivy League acceptances, with three students gaining entry to Harvard, 13 offers to the top 10 US universities, 26 to the top 20, 53 to the top 50, and 28 offers to the top 10 UK universities. Crimson’s New Zealand branch boasts an extraordinary 47 per cent acceptance rate to the Ivy League.”

“Globally, Crimson students received 262 Ivy League offers and 600 offers to the top 20 US schools. These are industry leading results and place Crimson as the world’s most successful admissions firm, which we are incredibly proud of.”

Crimson attributes its success to its team of talented academic professionals and network of former Admissions Officers who provide world-leading advice. Their expertise ensures that students and their families are well-prepared for the rigorous application processes of top US universities.

The Auckland event this weekend is sure to enlighten many who are weighing up their next move towards tertiary education and perhaps thinking outside the box of the traditional Kiwi pathway.
