<대학 입학 이렇게 준비했다>

1. 본인이 다닌 고등학교 (학교이름, 위치한 국가, 주 언어)
학교: Hebron School;
국가: India;
언어: English.

2. 현재 입학한 대학, 단과(학과) 학교 단과의 특징, 장점(소개)
대학: 고려대힉교;
학과: 생명과학대학 식품공학과 – Encompasses the learning of technology surrounding food production and nutrition. The primary focus of this department is to further food technology with the help of science.

3. 왜 현재 입학한 대학과 단과를 선택하게 되었는가? 그리고 대학지원과정을 자세하게 나눠주세요.
The primary reason for choosing the College of Natural Sciences and the department of Food Bioscience and Technology was because I came across multiple obstacles during the process of applying for the College of Medicine in Seoul National University. Among these obstacles were the problem of the compulsory military service and the delay of education that resulted from not being accepted into medical college for 2 consecutive semesters. Therefore, under the pressure of starting my higher education, I decided to apply to a different department for which I had a greater chance of being accepted.
In all honesty, the application process to Korea University was almost like an emergency application. I had to complete this application in a very short period of time because I was still waiting on the results of my other applications and was waiting to see if I would have to apply to yet another university.

4. 대학입학 준비를 하면서 어려웠던 점
Once of the difficulties I came across during the application process was the difficulty of completing the application in the short period of time available to me. Another difficulty was the fact that I was in Korea while the high school I graduated from was in India. Although my school counselor and teachers were most helpful during the application period, it was difficult to communicate quickly and obtain the required documents. Furthermore, the time restraints didn’t help this problem because the application period coincided with the festive season of India, which made the postal services unreliable and excruciatingly slow. All in all, the application process was a stressful experience.

The biggest change I would implement upon my application procedure would be to have my personal statements ready well before the deadline – perhaps with about 2 weeks to spare. This would have helped alleviate some stress during the application process while providing me with enough time to revise these personal statements before the deadline.
Another change would be to make my personal statement more ‘personal’ and idiosyncratic. Reading over the essays now, I feel how detached the essay feels from me; the essays don’t tell the admission officers anything personal, such as my personality or style. If I had another chance to apply (although that seems like quite an unwelcome experience) I would want to help the admission officers know better who I am as a person.

If you ever plan to apply as 특별전형 for overseas Koreans (12-years), I would advise that you take care to collect and store safely all your school reports. Regardless of how trivial this might seem, it is vital for your application because any gaps between your reporting years will raise questions among the admission officers and reflect badly on you.
Secondly, I would advise that you thoroughly research all the universities you would like to study in well in advance of actually applying. I say this because, like me, you could find yourself in another country while applying and not being prepared with all the necessary documents and forms can be frustrating beyond anything else.
Thirdly, I would strongly recommend to any student wishing to study in Korea to thoroughly examine your motives and desires. I don’t say this lightly because I came to Korea to study medicine despite my desire to study in the West and have found it extremely difficult to accept studying in Korea. I confidently say that listening to your parents is important, but to be honest, it is your future and so if Korea isn’t right for you, don’t deny yourself the opportunity to study where you want to. I cannot stress enough how important this is in order for you to enjoy your higher education.
Lastly, and most importantly, pray. There is no one more powerful than God, and if you trust and ask for his help, he will never let you down. Seriously.

Don’t force or pressure your children. There is nothing worse than to have to bear your children’s suffering and hatred for your decisions. By the time they are of age to apply to university, they are no longer kids, they are young adults who should be able to make their own decisions and take responsibility for them. Insisting your point of view will most certainly not help them. The mild-mannered ones will consent and the strong-willed resist, but generally your children will not be happy. I am certainly not saying that you should keep out of their decisions, all I’m saying is that you should know that after expressing your wishes the ultimate decision should be your children’s.
