Ameson Senior VP Doris Davis to tour China for Ivy League admissions seminars

Doris Davis


he Ameson Foundation has organized a series of three seminars to be held in Beijing, Shanghai and Nanjing between March 13 and March 18. Geared towards Chinese high-school students, parents, and college juniors and seniors, the seminars will discuss strategies for applying to Ivy League schools, the standards used by Ivy League Admissions Departments, and an overview of American education theory. The leader and guest of honor of these seminars will be Doris Davis, who recently accepted the position of Senior Vice-President of the Ameson Foundation. Ms. Davis has previously worked as the Associate Provost for Admissions and Enrollment at Cornell University, the Dean of Admissions at Barnard College of Columbia University, and as a consultant to the U.S. Department of State’s Office of Overseas Schools travelling to sub-Saharan Africa each year to provide information to students on applying for admission to colleges and universities in the United States.

Students attending the seminars will also have the opportunity to meet and participate in question and answer sessions with the deans of several famous American universities. In Nanjing, Ms. Davis will be joined by Ameson Chief Counselor Vivian Jo Fiallo, who will focus more on how students can most effectively navigate the admissions process. According to Ms. Fiallo, “we’ll be taking a two-tiered approach. I’ll cover the admissions requirements as they need to be understood by high school students, while Doris will cover the requirements from the perspective of the Ivy leagues.”

The seminars will focus on the following areas:

  • Data and Records: the importance of the AP courses when applying to Ivy League universities
  • Research: a renowned educator’s take on the basics of American education theory
  • Student Success Stories: statements from students who changed their lives through education
  • Leadership Perspectives: in-depth conversations with deans from famous American universities
  • Application insights: the key considerations for students applying to American universities and the standards these schools use in selecting students.
