What are we looking for
More than 500 hundreds candidates were interviewed by IBL till date. In order to submit your application, you are required to make an appointment to meet our Admissions Officers and schedule the screenings and observations prior to a successful admission. Because of heavy demand for these appointments, we recommend you book your appointment on our Facebook page or Official Website. Arrangements for these meetings usually occur sometime after your application is submitted.
How Your Application is Considered
In our admissions process, we give careful, individual attention to each applicant. We seek to identify learners who will be the best educators of one another and their teachers—individuals who will inspire those around them during their learning years and beyond.
As we read and discuss your application, many questions will be on our minds. Some things we consider:
Growth and potential
- Have you reached your maximum academic and personal potential?
- Have you been stretching yourself?
- Have you been working to capacity in your knowledge and intellectual pursuits, your full-time or part-time dedication, or other areas?
- Do you have reserve power to do more?
- How have you used your time?
- Do you have initiative? Are you a self-starter? What motivates you?
- Do you have a direction yet? What is it? If not, are you exploring many things?
- Where will you be in one, five, or 25 years? Will you contribute something to those around you?
- What sort of human being are you now? What sort of human being will you be in the future?
- Do you care deeply about anything—intellectual? Extracurricular? Personal?
- What have you learned from your interests? What have you done with your interests? How have you achieved results? With what success or failure? What have you learned as a result?
- In terms of extracurricular, athletic, community, or family commitments, have you taken full advantage of opportunities?
- What is the quality of your activities? Do you appear to have a genuine commitment or leadership role?
- If you have not had much time in schooling for extracurricular pursuits due to familial, work, or other obligations, what do you hope to explore at IBL with your additional free time?
- What choices have you made for yourself? Why?
- Are you a late bloomer?
- How open are you to new ideas and people?
- What about your maturity, character, leadership, self-confidence, warmth of personality, sense of humor, energy, concern for others, and grace under pressure?
- Will you be able to stand up to the pressures and freedoms of a learner independent life?
- Will you contribute something to IBL and to your teammates? Will you benefit from your IBL experience?
- Would other learners want to room with you, share a meal, be in a seminar together, be teammates, or collaborate in a closely knit extracurricular group?
Of course, no process is perfect. Inevitably, some learners who are not admitted will see great success, and even with a 97 to 98 percent graduation rate, some admitted students might have been better served at another institution. However, we do everything possible to make the best admissions decisions for each learner.
