Throughout the year, University Admission News will celebrate the successful applications of our seniors, spotlighting each of the 36 seniors on the occasion of his or her first acceptance. The students in the Saint Maur Class of 2016 have completed approximately 250 applications to about 150 universities in the United States, Canada, Britain, France, Spain, Australia, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, China, and Singapore. Depending on the national calendar, deadlines and decisions vary widely. As the seniors finished their regular class schedule and entered the intensive phase of exam preparation, three 12th graders received long-awaited news of their acceptance by high-priority universities. Shimpei Hara, whose achievements were profiled in UAN # 21, was accepted by International Christian University (ICU) in Mitaka, Tōkyō. Shimpei hopes to study Engineering or Business at a university in Japan, Australia, or the United States. Yūri Noguchi, who has been accepted to six other universities in the U.S. and Canada, received his acceptance to the University of Toronto in Toronto, Ontario. Yūri is the eighth Saint Maur senior to be accepted to this world-class university so far this year, with several other decisions pending. Read more about Yūri in UAN # 18. Asif Faizan Rahman, who was also described in UAN # 21, received his third acceptance from a major U.S. public university, when he was invited to join the freshman class at the University of Texas in Arlington, Texas (near Dallas), with the goal of studying Mechanical or Aeronautical Engineering. He had previously been accepted at Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona, and at West Virginia University in Morgantown, West Virginia. Congratulations to Shimpei, Yūri, Asif, and their families!
