Nguyen The Quynh (M.I.T & Stanford)

I was admitted to two dream schools: Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Stanford University! I will bring this “Community Spirit” with me to support the next generations of applicants.”
Nguyen Phuong Thao (M.I.T)
“Being a bewildered girl who has just stepped out of the high school gate but raised a dream of studying in the US, I know that many challenges are awaiting ahead. However, I believe in miracles and one day, I met the most wonderful counselors at APUS at the most appropriate time. “We create opportunities” is the slogan of APUS, and I hope more and more young people will receive invaluable advice from APUS during the application to the top universities in the U.S.”
Do Hoang Nam Hieu - Colgate University (#16 LACs)
“Phuong and Trung have not only been incredibly wonderful mentors to me but also truly supportive friends. Through hours of self exploring, idea brainstorming and at times casual chitchatting, they helped me realize the strengths that I myself have never noticed before and cultivate my interests into something fruitful. Trung was also a mental pillar of support when things didn’t going according to plan, someone who firmly believes in my ability despite the odds. Thanks to APUS, the seemingly daunting application process was transformed into an enjoyable and insightful self-reflective journey.”
