What do you look forward to the most about studying in the US and at your university in particular?
What is the best memory or experience you have had during your years as a CCC member?
The best experience for me was meeting with my mentor who had attended my top choice university. Not only did she help me to write essays but also to learn about college life in the US and what things I should think about when searching for colleges and completing my applications.
What has being part of the CCC meant for you? How has it helped you?
What would you say to the students who are going to start being part of the CCC next year?
Start early and don’t set your hopes on just one school because the competition is tough and even the best students don’t always get accepted to their dream school. Show universities that you are interested in attending by reaching out to admissions, attending college fairs, visiting the website. Apply early action if possible, so you don’t have to wait so long for decisions. CCC offers great advice so attend all the sessions and do your homework to make the most of the CCC experience.
