I am aging beyond years. Why? One of my past students Sonam has invited me to her Engagement Party, she is about to be married. Where did the years go? I just remember her, a shy, young lady at Immaculate.
Sonam graduated with stellar grades from Immaculate and she completed her undergraduate studies at University of Pennsylvania. I wish her all the best on this new leg of her personal journey. I believe the young man in question is quite a lucky fellow! Sonam is the full package!
These exams are close. I have left a lot of you to work quietly through this period. These exams are important. Good results can shave off time from one's undergraduate studies.
As soon as these exams are completed, students going off in 2024, need to focus on applications and the SAT exam for August and October.
Yes, it is that time. By May 1, students should have committed to their school of choice. And we have to secure the visa appointment date. Lots of paperwork....and time is running out....
See you next week!
I am very pleased to announce that New York Institute of Technology will be offering the International Leadership Scholarship again this year!
