Milika Scholars is a program designed to help you through your junior and senior years in order to get you to the college you want! Seniors Jannatul Anika and Milan Patel are the Creators of Milika, who after their process with college applications, decided to try and better the process for future seniors.

 

The program plans to help Waterford Juniors by providing them with monthly reminders of things to get done during the month. For example, for the month of March, a focus was placed on AP test preparation, SAT studying, and beginning to fill out the Common Application. Furthermore, Milika Scholars has compiled a list of Scholarships to apply to for both Juniors and Seniors, so that they are easier to find. As the year progresses, however, each Scholar will start to receive more personalized guidance, which means advice specific to interest scholarships and help with college research. During the application season, the program will also provide mentorship essay writing  and other components of applying to college.

 

In the words of Jannatual Anika, founder, “Milika Scholars is a service we provide out of the kindness of our hearts. It is purely to help juniors and make applying to and getting into college a bit easier. Juniors should join no matter where they want to go, as I am sure we can help them in some way.”

 

Another unique feature of Milika Scholars is the network it has created. Milika provides a list of contacts of people already in college at a variety of universities and studying a variety of programs that Scholars can ask questions and talk to in deciding programs and schools. Aside from that, one of the most compelling reasons to join Milika is that it is FREE!!!! College consultants cost about $200 an hour, so juniors, please take advantage of this opportunity!

 

Another staff member, Olivia Billis also suggests that “[t]his program is a conduit to accessing the wisdom of the people who come before you. We the staff of Milika are committed to providing as much help as possible and are here to answer any questions. We are going to be staying with the current juniors throughout their senior year and hope to greatly influence the outcomes of the college application journey in a positive manner.”

 

Overall, joining Milika Scholars is purely beneficial to you!
