UStudy helped me to set up an American-style resume, and their application specialists assisted me in composing proper application letters. I also took part in their ACT prep workshops, which led to my ACT test score going up. Without UStudy, I probably would not have succeeded; you have to take care of so many things!

I started dreaming of going to college in the US when I was 12. I got in touch with UStudy and that is how it all began. Now I am a junior at Manhattanville College in New York, where I major in Business management, with a minor in Economics.
My mother encouraged me to go to the GO USA Education Fair.
After talking to Marina about all the different options,
it came down to two places: Seattle or back to California – such a hard decision. I made a list of pros and cons.
That’s when I knew I had to go to Cali.
