Learning about some ideas of the culture behind the evaluation criteria; E.g.: (1) What kind of students are looking for? (2) If some parts of my application don’t look very good, can I still stand out if my other parts are excellent? (3) Where can they find my merits? (4) They value the diversity of the cohort, and what does this mean? (5) They run the school with an educational approach and in a commercial and political way.
Getting into a better university, and getting into a better company. E.g.: (1) You can many ways to enhance your international experience. (2) The idea and possible outcome between college education and graduate study. (3) You have other ways to live a better life. (4) What kind of alumni (students) they are looking for?
