Me and my family have planned forever for me to attend university in the United States. However, there are various tasks to complete the process and it is very intimidating to take the first step. I know I wanted the US, but where? Which college can fulfill my curiosity and let me grow to my full potential? With thousands of universities and colleges in the US, it is hard to pick one, let alone apply and finish all the required application process. Fortunately, I met JACK Study Abroad when I attended their education fair once. It was nice to be able to talk to person who have the experience and can assist me in the process. With their assistance, I am able to be enrolled in the university transfer program in Edmonds College. They also gave me some tips for studying abroad and shared some experiences from previous students, which really helps me in getting used to the US and the education system there.
Finally, in January 2019, I was enrolled in the university transfer program at Edmonds College. There, I met dedicated professors, enthusiastic friends, and when I graduate, I brought with me a handful of beautiful memories. Edmonds College had a lot of international students as well, which helps me feel less homesick. At Edmonds College, I lead my first research group (though informal, still a proud achievement for me), I got my first job, and went to my first science symposium. It is also where I chose my major, chemical engineering. However, Edmonds College does not offer a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering, I must transfer to another institution. The advisors in Edmonds College are super helpful in assisting my transfer. They helped me choose coursework, fight for scheduling conflicts, and give their opinions on my personal statement. With their assistance, I am currently transferred to UC Berkeley – one of top US university. Without JACK Study Abroad and Edmonds College staffs, I would never be here. Thank you for leading me to this wonderful journey!

I have never thought of studying in the USA until I met the education consultant called JACK Study Abroad. When I consult with them first time last year, they asked me what am I planning to do and what I’m passionate about. At that time my answer was Music and performance. They quickly then suggest me to consider studying in the USA as there many good universities offering music courses as well as USA is the greatest industry music after all. I am so convinced with the suggestions and then we go through the whole process of selecting the right university for me that fits my financial, apply to the university, preparing my English requirements, search for the accommodation as well as they helped me to prepare my student visa even the run mock test for the interview which as amazing, thus I can depart smoothly in the end. They really help me in every process and put their 100% effort in what they did.

At first, I wasn’t sure if studying abroad is a right choice, and then I bumped into JACK Study Abroad during university fair held by my school last year. JACK Stud Abroad helped me to decide on which path suits me best for my further study. JACK Study Abroad provided an amazing list of universities options based on my background which was really helpful. They also made the whole application process so simple and easy. Another thing to point out is that they prioritize the student’s goal and support any decision the student made. Now I have been studying couple months at Columbia College in Vancouver, I’m studying UTP and plan to transfer to top university in Canada afterwards. I enjoy my study and life here so much.

Studying and living in the US has been a life changer for me. Previously, I was confused and lost in what to do after A levels and where to go. Thankfully I stumbled across JACK Study Abroad and was able to get some really helpful guidance and direction towards taking my next step. Personally, I wasn’t prepared to deal with the registration and the entire process of looking and applying to a school, and JACK Study Abroad has offered and given the utmost and best assistance throughout the entire process. Not only that JACK Study Abroad opened up my mind, but the guidance they provided was able to give me new choices and options to take option such as community college. I was still unsure of choosing my major which means that community college is a great choice for students in my previous position. I am currently studying in Edmonds Community College in Lynwood and has chosen business administration as a major. If you are ever unsure in taking the next step after high school, JACK Study Abroad is a great education agency to refer to as they are passionate in guiding and helping us towards our future.

When my time to choose a university came, it was very hard for me to choose the right university for my future. I aim to study in the USA and there are lots of universities in USA to choose. And there are a lot of things to be considered as well. Then, I visited one of education expo held by JACK Study Abroad. JACK Study abroad gave me a lot of information through consultation and recommended me Oregon State University as one of the options. They also help me through admissions process until the student visa application process, and it went very well.
I have been studying in Oregon State University for 2 weeks now and I enjoy studying here. The environment is very conducive for studying. OSU has a lot of facilities, such as sports center, gym, library, and many more, that all students could have access to use. Corvallis is one of the safest cities in the US, so I do not need to worry about the safety being a student. There are a lot of good food too around the campus.
Thank you JACK Study abroad for giving me this opportunity to study at Oregon State University.

I never thought that one day I will study in America. Like most of us, I was confused on what major I should pursue and where. I did my research about different kinds of major in hope that I would find something that suits me, guess what, no luck. Then one day I found out about JACK Study Abroad while I was browsing.
I tried to contact them and discuss for the study options after my O level. Turns out, there are a lot of choices, which confused me even more. Never have I thought that I could go to university straight using only my O-level qualification. Thankfully, they guided me through it and asked me simple questions like what subjects I’m currently taking and which one I prefer the most. One of the choices they gave me was chemical engineering. They then introduced several universities from around the world which offer a good chemical engineering program. We stayed in touch even during my exam period. They always update me with new information and also invite to attend the education expo to find out more information.
It was finally time to make a decision and thanks to their fast response and guidance, I am currently studying at Oregon State University in Corvallis – USA, majoring in chemical engineering. Without JACK Study Abroad’s assistance, I may not be where I am now. Thank you!
