Amy’s Testimonial张蕊的推荐信

  

My name is Amy. I was born and raised in Chongqing China. Currently, I am in University of California Riverside for a one-year University Credit Program. I have already received 4 admissions from US graduate schools. I want to further my education in the business field and make a career as a financial advisor or an international businesswoman.

 

I got to know USCEC on an Education Exhibition in Chongqing. At that time, I was preparing for my TOEFL and GMAT and I knew little about school application. I showed my confusion and worry to the staff of USCEC. We had meetings many times either face to face or on Skype. They were very helpful by listening to all my confusion and then categorizing it in order to give me a fresh head. They assigned me to finish a personality test so that I could assess myself better to know what I want. They helped me make a specific schedule for my application. When I fulfilled all the test scores, they gave me many valuable suggestions and advice on school selection.

 

The knowledge USCEC taught me will work for all my life. I am very pleased and grateful to know this company.

 

The majority of USCEC is from the US. Some of them are in the education industry, some of them are in the business field, and others are from many other professions. This strong group context makes this group outstanding and capable of helping students more professionally and efficiently. The staff in the branch of Chongqing is also remarkable. Unlike other study-abroad services, the staff in this group is equipped with overseas experience, which facilitates communication with students and improves understanding of the oversea study experience, including possible obstacles and difficulties during application and inconvenience when studying abroad.

 

I highly recommend this service. I benefited a lot from this service and I believe it will bring you more!

 

Three most important things I learned from USCEC?

The first thing I learned was to always staying positive and confident to those well-known difficult tasks, because you will never know how it works unless you cope with those things personally. Even if you fail in the end, the lesson you have learned and the people you have met are fundamental to your success in your future.

 

The second thing I learned is the methodology to make a plan, scheduling the days backwards. From the due day, we pinpointed important dates, such as TOEFL day, GMAT day, evaluation day, school selection week and first application deadlines of each school. Then, we allocated each task some time to prepare. This is a very useful and effective way to organize my thoughts and ease my panic.

 

Another lesson they taught me is taking advantage of seeming disadvantages. For example, I am a Chinese who will study abroad as a foreigner. I can hardly express my understanding and opinions very clearly and fluently. However, if I can describe what I know with novelty, people will show more respect when they get to know my nationality. Moreover, though English is my major, it’s impossible to speak any better than people raised in English-speaking countries. However, as a Chinese, I should be proud of my nationality and I can speak not only English but also Chinese and French. I have an international background and multicultural context. I have more chance to get into the international field than many Americans.

  

    

我叫张蕊Amy,重庆人。现在正在加州大学河滨分校进行一年的交换项目。至今为止,我已经收到美国四所大学给我的研究生录取通知书。我希望将来可以在金融和商务领域工作,做一个财务顾问或者做国际贸易的商人。

 

我是在重庆举办的教育展会上了解到中美教育联盟的。那段时间,我正在准备TOEFL和GMAT考试,对申请学校的流程知之甚少。我咨询了中美教育联盟,表达了我的疑惑和担忧。从那以后,我和中美教育联盟的工作人员开始比较密切的联系,有时候面对面交谈,有时候通过Skype进行交流。他们非常耐心的帮助我。为了给我一个清醒的头脑,他们将我的问题分类,让我做了一个职业性格测试,并且帮助我为申请流程做了一个详细的规划。当我考完所有必要的考试,他们又给了我许多关于择校和择专业的建议。

 

我在中美教育联盟学到的东西让我终生受益。能了解到中美教育联盟和认识他们的工作人员,我感到非常高兴和感激。

 

在中美教育联盟中工作的人,大多是美国当地人,他们来自不同的行业背景,如教育和商业等。这样强大的团队背景造就了中美教育联盟出色的工作特点,使他们能够为学生更专业,更有效的服务。重庆的分公司的人员配置也非常优秀,员工们大多有海外留学经验,这使他们可以更好的与学生交流,更容易理解海外留学,包括申请过程中可能出现的困难,留学生活的不便等。

 

这个团队非常优秀!我从中受益匪浅,相信你们会体会更多!

 

从中美教育联盟学到的最重要的东西:

首先,我学到了无论遇到什么困难,都要保持乐观和自信。如果不自己亲身去经历,你永远不会知道会发生什么。即使最后失败了,你从中学到的东西和你所遇到的人将会为你未来的成功奠定基础。

 

其次,我学会了制定计划的方法 。我们把所有重要的日期标记出来,比如TOEFL考试日期、GMAT考试日期、评估日期、学校选课周和每所学校申请截至日期。然后,我们为每项任务分配准备时间。这个方法对整理思绪和减少内心的恐慌非常有用。

 

另外,我还学到了如何对貌似的劣势加以利用,变劣势为优势。比如我将以一个外国人的身份留美学习,而我很难将我的想法和观点用英语清楚流利地表达出来。然而,如果我把我所知的东西以一种新颖的方式描述出来,别人在知道我的国籍后就会更加尊重我。还比如说,英语虽说是我的专业,但我不可能说得比土生土长的美国人还要好。那么,作为一名中国人,我就应该为我的国籍骄傲,我不但会说英语,还会说汉语和法语呢。我有着国际化和多元文化的背景。我比很多美国人更有机会进入国际领域。
