Why Us

With over twenty years of experience in university admissions, and over ten years at the helm of Arbor Strategy Consulting, Alexandre Tabet has developed a keen understanding of the admissions practices at institutions of higher learning around the world. He has lived in the UAE for 40 years, and attended the Lycee Français Louis Massignon in Abu Dhabi, as well as the American Community School of Abu Dhabi before graduating from Choueifat Abu Dhabi. As such, Arbor has a unique understanding of the various secondary school systems and a personal appreciation of the cultural sensitivities and needs of international students seeking to study in the United States and the United Kingdom. Arbor takes a personalized approach and not only does all the work ourselves, from responding promptly to parent inquiries and advising students on selecting universities and revising essays, but we also take on a limited number of students each year, ensuring a great deal of individualized and personalized attention. Our policy of meeting weekly with our students, totaling a face time of 35-40 hours, has guaranteed a 100% placement rate in tier 1 universities and 42% enrollment rate in elite colleges and universities.
