    12. 12. Student Testimonials <ul><li>“ Among all the agencies in Taipei, Envision Prep was the only agency that encouraged me to study abroad as a junior in high school while others suggested me to stay as a sophomore for an extra year to get used to the environment and improve my English. However, Envision Prep proved them wrong. Because of Envision, I did fine throughout high school with their help and counseling (class selection, essay editing, constant encouragement, summer SAT program, just to name a few) and successfully got admission to the ideal college I had always dreamed of. Through Envision, I not only had a great time with the counselors and students there, but also learned more about myself and discovered my potential. I strongly recommend you Envision Prep!” </li></ul><ul><li>“ I first knew EnvisionPrep when I was a sophomore student in high school. In the past four years, EnvisionPrep has helped me reach my greatest extent by incessantly encouraging me to challenge my original capacity. Because of its great assistance in multifarious fields, I could surpass myself by achieving high scores in standardized exams and getting in a good college. Moreover, EnvisionPrep offered me an excellent working experience during the last summer, where I learned abundant practical social knowledge that can hardly be found in common academic readings. In sum, EnvisionPrep truly played a crucial role in my life so far, and I believe that I will still seek help from it in the future. By the way, I personally give thanks to Nancy, Jassie, Mark, Judy, and Donald. Without your help, I could never attain where I am right now.”  </li></ul>Harrison S., Northwestern University, Class of ‘13 Hometown: Taipei, Taiwan Joey H., UCSD, Class of ‘13 Hometown: Taipei, Taiwan
    13. 13. <ul><li>Lisa W., Berkeley Class of ‘12 Hometown: Taipei, Taiwan </li></ul><ul><li>“ EnvisionPrep has encouraged me to look beyond my niche, and has enabled </li></ul><ul><li>me to make life-changing decisions. Attending UC-Berkeley was not possible </li></ul><ul><li>without EnvisionPrep's superior counselors and their guidance. The process </li></ul><ul><li>for applying to colleges was rather demanding, but yet </li></ul><ul><li>EnvisionPrep managed to help me reach my goal.”  </li></ul>Student Testimonials C. Hsu, Yale, Class of ‘09 Hometown: El Cerrito, CA “ EnvisionPrep encouraged me to start taking the SATs when I was in 10th grade and also apply through Early Action. They made the application process relatively stress free and enabled me to attend my top choice of schools.”
