During a three-week visit to Hong Kong this month, independent university admissions consultant Dr. Mark Montgomery visited a number of the citys finest secondary schools to share his expertise with students, families, and other professionals. His presentations focused on the important choices secondary school students must make as they map out their future plans. Dr. Montgomery is president of American Academic Advisors in Hong Kong, as well as of Montgomery Educational Consulting, based in Denver, Colorado.
The title of the presentation is "Roadmap to University Admission in the USA." Dr. Montgomery offers this presentation to schools all around the United States, as well as in Hong Kong and China. He is also a regular speaker at various clubs and associations to bring his positive and upbeat message about the advantages of an American university education.
The presentation begins with a basic explanation of the American higher education system, with a special emphasis on the differences between a college and university. In the US, we tend to use these terms interchangeably, said Dr. Montgomery, however, in Hong Kong, college is sometimes synonymous with a secondary school, and is therefore assumed to be inferior.
