Boston University / ED

It’s lucky to have PANO’s counselor working together on my essay. When discussing with Catherine, she always gave me lots of unique ideas and would evaluate them carefully to see if these worked. If I didn’t know how to write it down, she would also guide me and help me revise my first draft. Her wordings were so beautiful that readers would be impressed of it. Besides, I felt relaxed when discussing the essay and my thoughts with Catherine. And I love getting feedbacks from her. The process was highly efficient and made me feel happy. Take the essay of Boston University for instance, I felt so nervous at first because there was only one week before the deadline, but with Catherine’s help, we finished an impressive essay on time! It’s really lucky to have Catherine as my essay counselor.

Ginny Hwang

Ginny didn’t know how she wanted to present herself and what was a compelling story to tell in the CommonApp essays.
​We guided Ginny by brainstorming the prompts, going through the materials and giving her second opinions. Furthermore, we discussed the extracurriculars she has participated in high school and found out the unique points she could tell in her essays.

Cindy Hu

Cindy didn’t do well on her TOEFEL. She would need to craft her resume and application essays to stand out from other competitors.
We integrated the experience of Cindy participating in a Finland summer camp in her essay. She talked about the desire to change and her positive mind to help people. Through the essay, we let the admissions officers see her future potential.
