They were always extremely patient, considerate and responsible. Their extensive knowledge of US universities and rich experience with college applications helped me tremendously in selecting suitable colleges, designing strategies and choosing extracurricular activities that demonstrated my unique qualities and wide interest.
Ms. Ruan and Professor McAndrew offered great help in editing my essays. I significantly improved my writing skills. They also helped me prepare for interviews and apply for scholarships. From them, I learned how to communicate with admission officers, how to reach out to colleges and how to find useful resources.
Ms. Ruan and Professor McAndrew taught me to stay focused, learn from my mistakes and that I should never do anything last minute. In addition, I became much more independent under their guidance, as I made many decisions on my own and learned to consider everything holistically.
