Luis Enrique Chavez Rubin

Luis from Mexico has been admitted to USC W.V.T. Rusch Undergraduate Engineering Honors Program for Mechanical Engineering (#11 national ranking).

"I always wanted to go to college in the US so I did a lot of research and then applied to seven schools, all extremely competitive. At the time I didn't get in and by then I had missed the deadline to apply to alternative schools.

So I found the Kings Pathways program in an Expo back in Mexico City and I saw that Kings had already placed students at the schools I had applied to. I talked to one of the representatives there and I saw that Marymount was the best campus for me because all the other choices would allow me to transfer anywhere but the California campus was more specifically designed so I could transfer to all the UCs (University of California).

What happened to me happened to a lot of my friends, they applied to different schools, didn't get in and ended up having to stay home as they couldn't find anything.

Here I was helped choose the courses I would need to transfer to specific schools, they helped me indentify the right universities for what I was looking for, corrected my essays and basically Kings help you present the best version of yourself and to get the things you need to go where you want to go."

Youjung Kang

Youjung Kang  "Eugene" from South Korea has received offers to transfer to UCLA, UC Irvine, UC Merced, UC Santa Cruz, UCS Riverside and UC Santa Barbara. He wants to major in Material Engineering.

"When it came to apply for transfers, I applied to all UC universities as I was very nervous about getting a place.

I got offers from UC Irvine, UC Santa Cruz and two days ago UCLA.

When I got the offer from UCLA I was screaming! My girlfriend was so happy and my parents said: "Really good job".

When I first arrived, I could only say: "Hi", "Yes", "No". I didn't know how I would survive. But time has passed and my teachers and friends helped. Kings really helped me."

Sebastian Arboleda Martelo

Sebastian Arboleda Martelo from Colombia has received offers from Boston University (#39) and Eastern Nazarene College. He wants to major in Engineering Physics.

"I really like inventions, innovation and doing new things so I think that is what I am going to pursue. After college I want to work in startups rather than for big companies because I feel that at this age it is more important to learn about passion and how to start a new enterprise. I want to learn and I want to experience.

Kings helped me a lot. Since the beginning, when I had a few problems. I think everything good that's happened to me since I got here is because of the help from Kings, without them I would be lost.

I think I have changed a lot because coming to a new country, new college and experiences, that puts you in front of new responsibilities. I like that, I enjoy change. I want to keep moving. I am grateful to everybody who has helped me get to where I am right now.

When you go to a new country, you get to know a lot more about yourself than you do about the new country!"

Jinwei Sun

Jinwei Sun (Kiwi) from China has offers from UC Irvine (#39), UC San Diego (#44), UC Davis (#44) and UC Riverside (#118), He wants to major in Business and Economics.

"I was involved a lot in the residential hall and I am currently a senator in the Marymount Student Government association.

When I first arrived to America, I could barely speak any English. Kings helped me with the language barrier and gave me the opportunity early on to communicate with American students.

There have been times when I was disappointed and tempted to give up and Kings helped motivate me, encouraged me and told me not to give up.

I wanted to study abroad but I didn't know what the steps were. Kings helped me take the first steps and get to know the American system."

"I really want to say thank you so much. At Boston University it is different because they need to take care of so many students while at Kings we have the personal friendship, we can talk to the tutors and advisors. Everything they taught me is so useful to me."

Tengyuan Liang

Tengyuan Liang (Seven-Eleven) from China has offers from University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (#44), George Washington University (#56), Purdue University, University of Wisconsin-Madison (#44). He has accepted the offer from University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and plans to major in Business Management there.

"I had two choices as I didn't have an SAT score or a high school diploma: University of South Florida or Kings Pathways. USF's overall ranking is #110 and I didn't want to go there because it is hard to transfer. So I chose Kings and I have already got offers from three universities [ranked 44 to 56].

Kings were very patient and understanding. They helped me so much with my application. I recommend to future students to communicate as much as possible with the professors and don't hang out with other Chinese students but try and speak English as much as possible."
