Princeton University

Princeton University was founded 1746 and is a private, Ivy League, comprehensive university.

It is located in Princeton, which is around 50 miles from New York City.

The reason why Princeton University Acceptance Rate is so Low because its an IVY league University and everyone wants to study at IVY. Only if you have a strong profile and a strong application , think of applying to this university.

We would in fact advice you to book for a virtual tour offered by Princeton and speak to few ambassador before planning to choose this university for applications.

Indian student below 90 % should not apply to the main campus since the application pool is strong.

However, if you have a good SAT score & for some reason you scored lesser, then you should apply to another campus and get transferred after the first year.

We got enough time to build there profile.

We created best set of Portfolio of Universities and started working on the essays at a very early stage.

Starting early and building your profile by connecting with relevant  students is one of the key steps.

My students was invited for a party. However, he was’t feeling well, so he decided against it.

Secondly, my student is a very nice guy. He took us out for a campus dinner, for instance. Thirdly, I enjoy his company because he always take me to a campus tour. He tried really hard to entertain me. Similarly, he put all his effort in dinner. My student pushed me. As a result, I fell over. She is not found of rain. However, I do like it. Now I am tired. Therefore, I am going to my dorm. In Conclusion. I am letting my staff go. In other words, they are fired. He has essay to share, but nobody listens. But the essay is plagiarized. And he knows it will not work.

Arvind has essay to share. But nobody listens. He was happy with his essay because of his editor. Earlier he was angry because he only had one draft which was not good.
