Interview With Jennifer Aquino, Author, The International Family Guide To US University Admissions

Jennifer Aquino
Jennifer, you've recently written a guide to US university admissions for expats. Tell us about the book and its aims.

Yes! There was a huge need in the market to help international families and expats through this very complex and complicated process. An ethical, thoughtful, comprehensive, knowledgeable and easy-to-use guide did not exist. I knew I needed to write this. Now families will gain, for the first time, a full understanding of the process and also be guided through every step they need to take for applying to US universities, including the interviews, the writing, their activities, filling out all parts of the application…all from their unique perspective and experience.   more ...

The Stress-Free Guide to Studying In the States; A Step-by-Step Plan for International Students

Posted by: Carole on Wednesday October 02, 2013 (13:56:59)
Expat Focus talks to Toni Summers Hargis about her latest book, “The Stress-Free Guide to Studying In the States; A Step-by-Step Plan for International Students”, which covers the entire process from thinking about, applying to and finally arriving at, an American university.

Toni, please tell us a little bit about yourself?

I'm a Brit who came to the States (via marriage) 23 years ago. I have three kids and a dog, (and the same husband) and we're in Chicago, Illinois. I was raised in the north east of England, went to university in Bristol and lived and worked in London before I moved here. I have now lived in Chicago longer than I have lived anywhere in my life, which is very weird. These days I spend my time writing books (see below) and posts for Expat Focus and the BBC's "Mind the Gap" web site.   more ...
