I GOT THE ACCEPTANCE LETTER FROM POMONA COLLEGE TODAY!! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR HELPING ME THROUGH THIS PROCESS!!!!!!!!!! Thank you so much for helping me get into Pomona! You are awesome! And you said that you were harsh or critical in your email but I think I really needed all of that motivation. I hope you and your family have a very happy and safe holiday! THANK YOUUUUUUU!!!!
Cornell! accepted me!!! I am soooo thankful!! You definitely helped me through the whole application process and made it 309583 times easier for me than for all my friends who didn't have a college counselor! Gosh I'm so relieved, I can finally breathe normally again! I feel like I've been holding my breath for the past month! Thank you thank you for everything! I'm very much looking forward to college!
Hi Dr. Lee, the past few days have been a bit hectic with everyone congratulating me on my acceptance. Due to such festivity, I felt like I didn't take enough time to thank you for helping me. I know that many times, I procrastinated and rushed many documents at the last moment. Regardless, you thoroughly looked over them. Through your truthful criticisms and comments, I was able to improve my essays and finish them on time. Without your help, I am not certain if I could have gotten accepted to my dream school. So I sincerely thank you!
My parents started dancing and calling everyone hehe 🙂 It's all because of the time and effort you spent on counseling me that I got accepted to UPenn. I'm so thankful to you for the UCLA research opportunity and the Science Olympiad idea you found for me, and the encouragement you gave me to take harder classes. Thank you so much for helping me with all the college essays and applications and putting in time to look over them. I am truly indebted to you and am so grateful!
I just want to thank you for all the effort and time you put into me. Your constructive criticism and words of genuine encouragement really made the difference in this difficult, rigorous college admissions process. Another area that I received great help in was interviews. In this admissions process, I think the interviews played a large role in my gaining acceptances in the top universities. I still have that extremely long e-mail you sent me a while ago with all the questions and the advice on how to handle an interview, and in using those, I was fully prepared for whatever the alumni had to ask. If you notice at the bottom, I gained acceptance to Princeton and Yale. I can honestly say that I had the most fun with these interviewers. Not only was I really relaxed, but the conversation flowed smoothly. Both interviews were just great experiences. THANK YOU SO MUCH MR. LEE!
I am very excited to be able to tell you that in addition to Cornell, I have also been admitted to NYU, UCLA (with a fellowship for full funding plus stipends), and just this evening Columbia! All schools have excellent programs in public finance and international economics. Also, fortunately, I have yet to receive any bad news (*keeping fingers crossed*). Needless to say, I am very happy with the way things have turned out so far this cycle. As always, thank you so much for everything! I owe all of my success to your guidance and advice. I am just extremely happy to be sharing the good news with you and wish that I will be able to continue to deliver more good news to you soon!
DR LEE I GOT IN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AH I AM SO EXCITEED!! I THOUGHT I MIGHT NOT CUZ I DIDN'T TELL THEM THAT I GOT INTO YALE BUT I GOT IN!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! AND I THINK I'M GONNA GO TO HARVARD!! GAHHH!!!! SO EXCITED!!!!!!I'M SO HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY!! THANK YOU!
I cannot thank you enough for helping me out with my application. You will not believe how much money I wasted cycling through different counselors before I ran into you... After 8 essay revisions, it looks like we prevailed — I just got into the University of Chicago (: I’m so ecstatic. I really appreciate you helping my illiterate self getting into school.
I just wanted to thank you for your tremendous help in writing my personal statement. I had a lot of pre-medical experiences that I wanted to talk about in my essay and you helped me to pick and choose the right pieces. Thanks for helping me connect them together and formulate a statement that really conveyed my story effectively and powerfully.
Thank you so much for all your help with my application, especially the Harvard app. I'm sure that without your help I wouldn't be going to such a great university! I hope you have a great year and I'll be sure to keep you updated on all the college news! Thank You!

I should have sent this earlier, but this week has been hectic with lots of work) Thank you for all your efforts and time with getting me into Harvard! I was ecstatic the day I found out.
아직 발표 안난 몇 학교 빼고 거의 모든 학교가 다 발표가 난 것 같네요. 우선 의외로 UC Berkeley가 됐구요, 그 외 UCSD, UC Irvine, U of Michigan, Case western, Carnegie Mellon 이렇게 합격 했습니다. 듣기로는 올해 경쟁율이 가장 치열했다고 하는데 consulting 하신 학생들의 결과는 어떠셨는지요? 아이가 오늘 학교 갔다와는 하는 말이 counselor 가 "You are really blessed" 라고 하면서 이번 입시 결과가 최악이었다고 하더랍니다. 제작년 까지만 해도 원하는 대학에 붙고 남을만한 애들이 많이 떨어졌다구요. 나중에 학교 결정을 어떻게 해야 할 지 다시 한번 조언을 부탁드립니다. 그동안 도와 주셔서 감사합니다. 또 연락 드리겠습니다.
I have gotten all my decisions, and I got into all the schools I applied to except Claremont McKenna (I was waitlisted). I was accepted at Wellesley, and I am most likely going to go there 🙂 Thank you so much for helping me throughout the entire college application process, and thank you for always answering the many questions I had. It feels so relieving to be finished with college apps, and I guess all I have left right now is to successfully finish my last semester of high school. Thank you once again!
