COMMON APP PREPARATION

With rising global competition, university applications are increasingly competitive. Top schools in the U.S like Stanford, Harvard, or Columbia typically have an acceptance rate below 5%. Admissions advisory has become par excellence for many students to get every advantage possible. QC’s Personal Statement courses for the Commonapps and supplementary essays helps each mentee to brainstorm, plan, and edit, for a unique narrative that impresses the admission officers. This will be customised to the countries and specific colleges applied for. For instance, a student applying for a Computer Science major should write about his or her interests in coding, hackathons, and opinions on relevant contemporary affairs.

Pursuing Artificial Intelligence and machine learning has always been my passion. I did research attachments, olympiads and online courses. However, I did not have experience navigating the complex Commonapps and Supplementary essay systems. I was very fortunate to have the experienced mentors at QC who helped me to shortlist and rate my chances, analysed the admission statistics, shaped my personal statement angle and portfolio. This definitely played a part in my successful applications.

I come from Shandong China and was recommended by my family friends that QC had a very good track record. I really appreciate the help James, Fung and Yixing gave for my commonapps and supplementary essays. The breadth and depth of experience for the mentors is truly amazing- no where can one find a Columbia PhD, Harvard masters and a Pscyhology PhD coaching me. They helped me to navigate the quirks and intricacies of the US system and the sheer amount of essays. They have been instrumental in my application, especially for Computer Science- which is such a competitive field.

The US Commonapps consults really helped sharpen my ability to construct cohesive and structured narrative essays. I must say that for the most part, Dayna has been super responsible and helpful. She would look into the lines of my essays and give sentence-by-sentence suggestions. We would talk in Skype and each session would last about an hour or so, with 3-4 sessions each. QC Mentors have been responsible, kind, amicable. She even had to travel a few kilometers to reach a place with the internet in China to carry out our sessions during the last phase of our mentorship.
