Welcome from the Center Director

Nino Bitsadze

We are delighted that you have chosen to study here with us, and I think you’ll find Concordia is a wonderful place to kick-start your college career in the United States.

The system of higher education in the United States may be complicated, but this complexity brings with it many advantages. You will have a variety of options when choosing your future institution, from city schools to rural schools, schools with chess teams, football teams, dance ensembles, and everything in between. With this variety, however, can also come some differences in the application process. I am here to help you decipher, and ultimately master, each school’s process.

The college application process in the United States has many steps. Among other things these steps will include:

  • Choosing which colleges to apply to
  • Writing your personal statement and supplemental essays
  • Obtaining transcripts from your high school and Pine Manor
  • Asking your professors to write letters of recommendation
  • Taking standardized tests such as TOEFL, IELTS, or SAT and ACT

We will hold events and presentations throughout the year that will help you get a better grasp on specific parts of the process.
