RSVP: Get Personalized Help on Your University Application!


Following up on our big seminar event last August, Indonesia Mengglobal is now excited to host coffee chat with US university students and alumni in Jakarta this December! This smaller, more intimate event will provide you with personalized help that caters to you, your application, and your circumstances. You’ll get 15 minutes one-on-one time with students and alumni from some of the best universities in the US. You can ask specific questions, address specific concerns, or even get feedback on your essays or applications.

The coffee chat will be held at one of the coffee shops in Pacific Place Mall, Jakarta, on December 16, 2012, from 3 – 6 pm, and we’ll have multiple 15 minutes slots during that time range.

Interested? Sign up here before November 25, 2012! We’ll get back to you by December 5, 2012 with the specific location of the coffee chat. Space is limited and we reserve the right to prioritize applicants whom we can help best, so please take the time to fill in the form carefully.
