“With your help, I resolved my AP Physics fiasco … and got into my dream school, UC Berkeley! Talking to someone so knowledgeable about the UC application process lifted a lot of my stress…. There are many in-person counseling services around my area, but they are very expensive. They also don’t spend that much one-on-one time with very student…. Thank you so much for all your help! I really don’t think I could’ve gotten in to so many of the UCs without you.”

“Accepted to UCLA!!! Thank you so much Ms. Sun!!!!!!!!!!! I still cannot believe it!! I know so many very well qualified friends who weren’t offered admission, and I know this year had the largest applicant pool and probably the most selective admissions process!! I cannot thank you enough for helping me get into my dream school! I really would not have been able to do it without you!!”
T. – March 21, 2015
 
“Since we’re from out of state we had no familiarity with UC admissions and we really needed good advice and counsel about their procedures…. in retrospect the service was worth every penny of the cost because you helped so much with getting admitted to UC, it was not possible for us to know this in the beginning; at first the cost seemed pricey and it was hard to justify paying it. But now we are glad we did and it was not too expensive after all. I am really glad I signed up to your service and would be lost without your guidance. You helped me get into my dream school [UCLA]! I was almost 100% sure they wouldn’t accept me. Thank you so much Ms. Sun!!!!”
A. – May 6, 2013

Transfer UC Application Service – Berkeley Haas School of Business

 

 
“I Got My Haas Admission Decision … AND I GOT IN!!! Thank you so much for the tremendous help Ms.Sun! You’re the best!”

“I GOT INTO HAAS! Thanks so much for all your help. This wouldn’t have been possible without you.”
S. – April 28, 2017
 
“When I was a senior in high school last year, I googled many questions regarding the UC application and often found myself on your website. I didn’t use your services last year (I didn’t have a college counselor), but often visited your blog to guide myself through the application process and make sure I was on track with everything…. Because this was my second (and probably last) time applying to college and I was a one-year transfer, I thought I could use as much guidance as possible. Having been a frequent visitor of your blog last year, I knew you provided services for junior-level transfers and knew more about the UC application process than other counselors…. I remember emailing/facebook messaging/speaking with you before actually signing up, and learning some very important things that made me a stronger applicant…. Thank you for everything you provided for me during this past year. I don’t think I could have gotten into Haas or even UCLA without you.”
S. (one-year transfer) – June 9, 2015
