May 1st is National College Decision Day. It is the day in which scholars across the country are required to have sent in their college admission notifications.
Here at New Ambitions, it is a day where we honor students' commitment to their college ambitions. Often times, commitment is the most challenging decision to make when there are so many different options to choose from. In life, there are countless paths to take, but the right one is the path that helps propel your ambitions and helps you grow as a human being. To all of our scholars, we will continue to celebrate your growth and you have our support! Continue to reach out to us with remaining questions or concerns.
Seek the academic environment that will drive your ambitions.
Rachel Johnson, Founder and President of New Ambitions, recently spoke to a vibrant and ambitious group of scholars who have been selected to join New York University with an esteemed honor.
NYU Scholars' Weekend hosts a series of events for a diverse group of admitted students who are also recipients of one of NYU's most prestigious scholarships (including the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. award). The scholars were selected from NYU's applicant pool (over 60,000 applicants this year!) and, in terms of their outstanding academic and personal achievements are the most dynamic, diverse and talented of NYU's admitted students.
Rest assured, colleges and universities across the country are competing for this group of scholars to join their educational organization.
Ms. Johnson participated in the NYU Scholars' Alumni Panel and reflected on her experiences at NYU as an MLK Scholar, the experiences that the scholars program provided, and the lessons that shaped her professional path. Above all, she advised the prospective scholars on how to maximize their education and how to choose an academic setting that cultivates their ambitions.
At New Ambitions, we know that a quality education teaches you that there is always something new to learn and that the journey is just as important as the place of arrival.
