USA For Students - 14th June 2008

I'm busy with USA For Students these few days. So, there will be fewer posts.

The event is 14th June 2008, 10am to 4pm at Wisma MCA.

First of all, would like to invite those of you who haven't visited the site, to visit it here . It has most, if not all, of the info needed.

On that day, things would happen at 2 places.
a) Level 2 - Dewan San Choon
- 69 Booths would be there (Refer to layout map at the website above).
- Essentially, it is like PC fair that you can visit the booths. Everything that you need to know about studying in US are there.
- Booths on US Embassy, MACEE, about 200 alumni and current students from 51 US Universities (including 7 Ivy League), a general U.S. Universities Applications FAQ Booth (this is manned by Kevin Sim, counselor of Raffles Junior College, Singapore and many others who have gotten into Ivy League and Ivy League standard universities this year), various american transfer program. For those of you who are going to Inti and Taylor's, your program director would be there. So, ask them questions there.

b) Level 3 - Auditorium
- Seminars
- Refer to Seminars tab in the website
- 8 Seminars
a) Seminar 1 (10am) - on US Education System - So, your questions like what is credit hours, what is fall break, what is quarter system etc.
b) Seminar 2 (10:45am) - on US Visa - self-explanatory. This is given by Consul General himself.
c) Seminar 3 (11:30am) - on SAT Reasoning Test, SAT2, TOEFL etc - by MACEE and The Princeton Review
d) Seminar 4 (12:15pm) - on tips to get into top US Universities (by Kevin Sim). Kevin Sim has helped many hundreds who got into Ivy League!
e) Seminar 5 (1:00pm) - get into PhD program in US (by Lin Lee who got into MIT, Harvard and Stanford - again no need to question her ability. :))
f) Seminar 6 (1:45pm) - Ivy League interviewers (MIT, Princeton and UPenn (including Wharton) interviewers). They are the people that will partly decide your fate to those universities.
g) Seminar 7 (2:30pm) - How to make use of US Universities opportunities - things like public speakers, seminars, conferences, research, courses etc. (I'm co-speaker in this seminar!)
h) Seminar 8 (3:15pm) - How's job market? What's marketable? Can you get a job after graduate? (by Chook Yuh Yng, Cambridge alumni and Head of Sales of

Really hope that all of you would be there!
