Students' cases

Student, Kenneth, from Albright College to University of Michigan, Ann Arbor

Terry Exchange - Utah Tacoma Community College, Washington   "To live in a home stay, never expect they will have enough food for you or the host parent will become exactly like your mummy and daddy.

Long Edmonds Community College, Washington University of California - Berkeley, California   Years ago back in Hong Kong when I was studying in Form 4, I was just a normal, lazy student studying in an equally normal school.

"...第一年就轉到好學校..."

Bonny Alfred University, New York University of Wisconsin - Madison, Wisconsin   "麗斯令學校的申請過程變得非常簡單,Alfred University的環境十分適合讀書,裡面就讀的華人也不多,令我有很多機會和外國同學交流,增進自己的英語水平,也加速融入外國的文化。Alfred University的名聲也不錯,使我在第一年轉校就成功轉到一間不錯的大型公立學校,全美排名頭四十。亦因為第一年就轉到好學校,我也有時間考入校內的Business School和好好考慮究竟哪一科的專業比較適合自己。"
