“I spent a wonderful year in BASIS Chandler, and thanks for your help I could stay there for a year and finish all my studies.
And now I finished my application season, and I was admitted by Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and I will enroll in their Computer Systems Engineering program next year. The year at BASIS really did help me a lot. Not only did I learn a lot of things academically, but also learned how to communicate and negotiate with other people, and how to survive in an American school. Thank you again for your help given to me when I was studying in Arizona!”
