In HS I was Head Girl and part of the Book Club as well as "Sustainable Goals Development" Club. I love English and writing but always had an inkling I'd do Law, and that is what I am doing now :) I was very undecided between that and Psychology or something along the lines of Zoology (I even considered Anthropology/Sociology at one point haha) because I love animals and observing people. But I am happy with my choice and still aim to combine Law and wildlife. I love swimming and used to compete, as well as water polo. I still read a lot for pleasure. I was also part of the school's YouTube channel which was my initiative and turned out very fun - I'm not good at editing but liked being the news anchor :) I lived in Australia for the first 13 years of my life, meaning I am aware of schooling differences but not too familiar with the university processes there.
BSc Economics @ LSE
Acceptances: LSE, UCL, Warwick, Durham, Manchester, UofT, UWis-Mads, NUS, NTU, SMU
Hey guys, my name is Pragyan Pratyush, and I am First-Year at the LSE, where I am en route to getting first-class honours. I am pursuing a BSc in Economics but would highlight Economics, Mathematics, Physics and Business Studies as my subjects of strength. I'm part of the Cricket team here and a couple of other societies, like an executive member of a social policy podcast, and I hold roles as a student consultant.
I was the IBDP world topper in high school, getting 45/45 in the May 2022 Examinations with an A in TOK and an A in EE. Apart from that, I was an active member of the school community via my active involvement in organising student events. I organised multiple events like upwards of 30 debate events, charity runs, TedXYouth events, tutoring programmes, student start-ups, etc. I also played numerous sports, including but not limited to cricket, basketball, and football.
Here's about me! I'm an avid, highly social learner and love interacting with new people. I find great motivation in helping people, especially in academics, and I love to chat about all sorts of things like movies, sports, songs, stupidly hypothetical scenarios, etc.
I look forward to working with some of you. Hopefully, I can be a catalyst in your dreams being materialised :)

Strategy and Digital Business @ ESCP Business School
Acceptances: Università Cattolica Milano, ESCP Business School
Hi! My name is Camilla and I'm currently enrolled in the first year of an MSc at ESCP. Before coming to an international business school, I graduated in Economics and Management in my hometown (Milan, Italy), also completing 2 full-time consulting internships during the last year of my Bachelor's. Managing a dissertation, last exams, and a challenging internship all at the same time taught me how to manage stress under time constraints and a high workload.
I've now moved abroad to Berlin for my degree, spending a term in Paris as well.
Fun fact about me: I could ride a bike in any city in the world, and I've regularly been practicing Crossfit for many years, now also across countries.
Computer Science and Mathematics @ MIT
Acceptances: MIT, Harvard, Stanford, Princeton, Yale, University of Pennsylvania, University of Washington
Hello! My name is Daniel Ige, and I am glad you are giving me the opportunity to share my story. I am currently in my first year at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology looking to double major in computer science and mathematics. I had a lot of fun in high school and spent most of my time leading clubs and organizations like our Black Student Union, FBLA, Investor's Club, and varsity basketball. As an MIT Student, I have been given the opportunity to really explore areas that were inaccessible to me before. I have tried a lot this year, traveling for club retreats and company visits, and attending many of the random events MIT has to offer. I am mostly focused on the classes that I am taking right now, with my favorite being Fundamental of Programming (6.1010), a class about developing skills with Python. Outside of classes, I spend a lot of time with the National Society of Black Engineers and with my undergraduate research, working on assisting the Department of Material Science to help automate their imaging process with Python!
Neuroscience @ Brown
Acceptances: Brown University, St Andrews University, Warwick University
Hi everyone! I’m Aleksandra and I am an incoming student in the Brown Class of 2027. My academic passion is neuroscience and more specifically all things related to neurodegeneration, including neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, or Huntington’s disease. I greatly enjoy writing publicly available scientific review articles on all things neuro-related, while also spending time in the lab designing and performing experiments. In my spare time, I do my best to give back to the community by volunteering with different programs providing extensive educational opportunities for children ranging from history to the natural sciences. Finally, I am also a certified rescue diver with over 8 years’ worth of diving experience!

I am involved in a few societies, including IPAS (International Public Affaits Society) where I work as an events officer, the Swimming and Tennis Societies, or the PPE Society. Since I was very undecided about what I wanted to do in the future, my highschool extracurriculars ranged from organzing an international confrence or working at a charity organization supporting Ukrainian refugees, to interning at the Citi Bank's foundation or researching the effects of algorithmic bias on democracy. As an international student with experience applying to schools in multiple countries I have some experience navigating through this difficult process and I would love to help!
Chemical Engineering And EECS, Mathematics @ MIT
Acceptances: MIT, Stanford
Me? I just like knowing stuff. I don't really discriminate where I get my knowledge from and I have been told that I have an exceptional memory so this has led me to being a walkign contradiction of sorts (I dont think so) it would be honestly easier toname things I am not interested in: Greco-Roman History, Fixing my Life, and High School Forensics.
Psychological and Behavioural Science @ LSE
Acceptances: London School of Economics (LSE), King's College London, University of Amsterdam (ranked 58/2700 in the selection test for psychology), University of Manchester, Ashoka University
Hi! I'm Arusha, and I'm doing a BSc in Psychological and Behavioural Science at the LSE.
I did a strictly science-based curriculum in high school (advanced level maths, physics, chemistry, psychology), and I do a very essay and stats-heavy course now, so I've had a very good exposure to a wide range of subjects! My academic interests lie in the interdisciplinary nature of psychology with computer science and economics, and I'm particularly fascinated by the quantitative methods used to study human behaviour.
I'm someone who gets interested by everything, so I'm never bored, but I've always had a penchant for reading fiction, and science. I also love writing, travelling and photography. I'm a really talkative person, and I love discussing hypothetical scenarios and making puns. I'm also obsessed with coffee, and never go a day without having at least a cup!
I don’t think I'd have gotten to where I am now if I hadn't had all the help that I did from various seniors and upperclassmen that I reached out to, and so I hope to be able to do the same and help your college dreams also become a reality. Super excited to be working with you :)
