SAS Senior Lien Morcate Chosen for Special Programs at Amherst and Williams

Morcate Lien

Miami, September 2, 2014 - School for Advanced Studies (SAS) senior Lien Morcate has been chosen to participate in two special programs next month in Massachusetts. Both Amherst College and Williams College have invited Lien to participate in their all-expenses-paid, 3 day, weekend visits.

The program at Amherst is called the Diversity Open House (DIVOH) and the program at Williams is titled Windows on Williams (WOW). These programs typically only invite 100 high achieving high school seniors from around the United States for these visits. Lien was chosen because of her outstanding academic record, an essay that was part of the application process, and the fact that both Amherst and Williams are likely to admit Lien with a generous financial aid package in the coming months.

Lien will have the opportunity to meet the faculty and staff at both institutions, eat in their dining halls, stay in on campus dorms with current students, enjoy performances by student groups, and attend workshops on the application process and financial aid.

Amherst and Williams are private schools and are traditionally ranked #1 and #2 in the United States each year in the U.S. News and World Report ranking of the "Best Liberal Arts Colleges in the USA".

Late News!

As of Friday, September 12, 2014 Lien Morcate was invited to attend the 2014 Dartmouth Bound STEM Exploration Program. This Ivy League institution informed Lien that she is a potential match for Dartmouth due to here exemplary record of academic and personal achievement. Lien is one of only 50 high school seniors in the United States to receive this all expenses paid trip to visit Dartmouth.

Lien will be at Dartmouth September 27-30 and will meet with the admissions staff to discuss ways to enhance her Dartmouth application essay and learn about the academic programs that are available. She will also explore the campus and facilities that Dartmouth has to offer.
