Responsibility, self-management, self-awareness, self-love, and social skills are essential when transitioning to the United States because you need to be able to find information and resources independently. Thus the counselor empowers students with possessed skills and encouragement for the engagement.
The majority of our seniors completed at least one required test for university - 92% of the seniors decided where they were applying for priority, early, and regular decision. 100% of seniors who applied for early have matched their common application in their Family Connection and submitted at least one letter of recommendation. Ms. Abukazam advised, “A strategy for the letter of recommendation is that you have to be responsible for showing curiosity, responsibility, and advocating yourself.”
It is hard to choose one particular major among the thousands of choices. “I wanted to study animals since I was very young, so I chose the major that I had the genuine interest in, but I also have friends who are unsure of what they want to major in. They just need to find schools that are flexible in changing majors or those that offer undecided major at the beginning of freshman year. There is no need to rush when choosing your path!” said Katniss, the senior president of KISJ TAIL Club. She had a clear picture of what she wanted to do and did not hesitate to choose Animal Science as her major.
Time has a wonderful way of showing us what really matters. It is hard to believe that the number next to our email crystallized into a reality. Let’s all wish the seniors the best of luck!
