Writing a College Application Essay - Success Story from Harry Akrofi-Mantey

During the application process to US universities, Harry worked hard on preparing the required documents and soon passed the standardized tests. What he struggled with was writing an application essay. He thus got in touch with the EducationUSA adviser at AmerikaHaus NRW, who supported him by offering general tips on essay writing, explaining what universites are looking for and finally by proofreading his draft. Harry submitted applications to several schools and received offers from three of them. In the end, he opted for the PhD Program in Chemistry at the University of Kentucky. Harry received a full tuition scholarship and a stipend as a teaching and research assistant. 
The AmerikaHaus NRW wishes him all the best for his PhD studies and future endeavors!
