Feiyang Liu
University of California – Los Angeles
Greetings! My name is Feiyang, and I am thrilled to work with you! I am a recent graduate of UCLA's Class of 2017 - obtaining my B.A. in Political Science and minoring in Global Studies. I have worked in higher education for a number of years - most recently as an External Admission Reader for UC Berkeley's Office of Undergraduate Admissions. That was such an insightful experience and I am eager to advise you through the admissions reader perspective. In addition, I possess native-level fluency in Mandarin Chinese and am happy to use those skills to supplement communications with both you and your admissions support system! In my free time I enjoy reading, playing guitar, discovering new music and attending festivals, running/working out, watching anime and, in general, challenging myself to grow by venturing out of my comfort zone in new and exciting ways. My goals include helping you: develop a personal vision for what admissions "success" looks like, manage stress/anxiety throughout the process and make it so maybe - just maybe - you have some fun too! With that said, I sincerely appreciate the trust you have given me and look forward to serving you - let's get started!

College Testimonials from Clients Who Were Accepted to University of California – Irvine

Slade Natale
University of California - Irvine

First off, my experience was very straighforward and smooth. The price is affordable especially considering the amount of work and time that you receive, not to mention the benefits provided by each plan. There are frequent check ins so you can review the work accomplished you have accomplished and my advisor would be on top of planning next steps for me. When writing my college essays, my advisor did not do the work for me but rather helped guide me to success. I would highly recommend all students applying to college use this recourse.
