I have recommended international universities to students for many years now, but only recently have my students expressed an interest in going abroad or to Canada. Going to college outside of the United States is an idea that is gaining traction. In fact, in the past two years I have attended three presentations by the British Council on universities in the UK. Despite our basic understanding of world class institutions like Cambridge, Oxford and the London School of Economics, there are a whole group of schools throughout the UK that are worth looking at. In my most recent tour of McGill, the admissions office told me American applications are up by over 25% making the school more competitive for American students.
