Hosted in conjunction with The American Club
Overworked and weary admissions officers at elite universities sift through soaring heaps of applications and often spend only a few short minutes assessing each applicant before rendering a snap judgment. As an applicant, your challenge is to stand out against your competition, which means seizing the attention of admissions officers by strategically crafting a unique personal brand that embodies your greatest qualities, character and achievements. And that’s where we’re here to help!
In this fun and interactive workshop, you will learn to:
- Identify your personal strengths and weaknesses
- Devise an action plan to enhance your strengths and mitigate your weaknesses
- Communicate your personal brand to the admissions officers in a compelling manner

AAS asks our members to continue to follow the current official MOH guidelines:
Do not attend AAS events if you have visited Mainland China; Iran; Northern Italy; Japan; and Republic of Korea in the last 14 days. Do not attend AAS events if you feel unwell. Wash your hands frequently, or use hand sanitizer when soap and water are unavailable.
The following advice was released regarding large scale events:
Advisory for businesses on large-scale events – (February 15, 2020)
Businesses should maintain normalcy, as long as the necessary precautions are taken.
- As advised by MOH, businesses are advised to cancel or defer nonessential large-scale events to reduce the risk of community transmission of COVID-19. The importance of the events differs according to the needs and priorities of the respective organisations.
- Large scale events refer to events with more than 1000 attendees. As a rough guideline, non-essential large-scale events refer to events like Dinner and Dance and Family Day with more than 1000 attendees.
- Smaller-scale events such as training and development courses and internal town hall meetings can continue.
AAS will be continuing with events from March 1 as our events do not meet the threshold of large scale, unless otherwise specified. We thank you for your patience during this time. As a non-profit organization we will do all we can to limit disruption, and ask for your support and consideration in the event of cancellations or refunds.
We will continue to monitor the situation and check government health site every day for updates. The health and well-being of our members and guests is important to us, and we will continue to follow the advice of the MOH.
