How Career Israel helped me gain acceptance to NYU | Atara Jacobs

Prior to my decision to go on Career Israel, I had applied to several Graduate Schools in the NYC area and despite my impressive academic record, I was wait-listed. I decided to amp up my record and spend 5 months in Israel on Career Israel through which I received expert coaching and placement by an unbelievable staff and internship coordinator.

While in Israel I honed skills in my field of study and reapplied with my added and diversified experience. I was recently accepted to my top-choice school in NYC, NYU’s School of Occupational Therapy, one of the most competitive programs in the country. I attribute my acceptance this time around to the wonderful experience I gained during what was a life-altering semester in Israel. Thank you, Career Israel!
