[Testimonial]感謝David Lee 李大衛 生涯諮商有機會interview with Google
這時候是MBA一年級尋找Intern的季節,雖然每個學校都有career center,不過跟david Lee談過之後,再修改履歷或許會有比較清楚的方向。David會從交談中幫你分析人格特質,並從你工作經驗或者社團經驗去挖掘自己以往沒發覺有興趣但符合市場需求的職位當作未來生涯努力方向。例如原本我的履歷上是尋找Market Analyst Intern但是與David談過之後,依據個人經驗與興趣以先切入Product Management為比較可行方向。而有了這個方向之後,再修改履歷才有辦法將尋找Product Management與相關工作經驗呈現在履歷上面。或許也是這樣才有機會與Google interview,雖然結論未知。目前在尋找Intern的各位,若在履歷上有困擾,不妨可以與David Lee聯絡!

Luke Hello Ming ,
Thank you for taking the time to talk with one of our Google engineers! I have your phone interview scheduled based on the availability you gave to Marisa .

[再狂賀一間命中]一間就拿USC面試
Dear David,

前幾天剛接到USC的面試通知 想跟你說聲 我們努力一個月的essay總算過了第二階段 很感謝你當初幫我這麼多

最近陸續接到幾家面試 USC UCI USCD 都是加州系的 繼BU被拒後總算重燃動力 [註:大衛只處理最難的USC,其餘學校非大衛處理] 本來一直擔心是托福問題 不過剛剛看了你在傷咖po的文章 (關於某位IT工作的朋友 面試率100%, 槓龜率100%) 想想自己不能老是陷在托福不到100的中國人式思惟 應該多往前看些 哈

大概這樣,跟你報告個近況 希望你最近身體好點

Hello David:
This is Jamie. I was consulting with you last week. It's Adam introduce my case to you.
Frankly speaking, you made my eye-opened. I really enjoyed the personality you show me in the consulting even it is a business service and only for 30 miniutes. I found fullfillment in your leadership. I hope I could be "somebody" as you in the future. It is not just business, but also guide some confused people.

I would like to puchase the In Depth Career Explorer. But I will have my Tofel test in June.

After that, I might contact u. Just let u know in advanced.

Testimonial from China
Hi David:
Thank you very much for your reply.

Your comparison in the Academic education really offers me another perspective when comparing these schools. I kind of narrowed in the placement perspective. And luckily for me, your opinion enhances my preference to Kelly.

I used to worry that Simon is like little Chicago in Finance concentration, and Kelly is strong in Marketing. So that's why I hesitated to make a decision. I think your analysis in the depth and width of academic education really makes a good point.

I talked with many students, alums of Kelley and Simon. I found that Simon people are very warm-hearted(out of my expectation). The Director of MBA office talked to me by phone, and provided me lots of information on their alum networking. Surprisingly, some alums even called me to describe me their life in Simon. Anyway, I know that every B-school would have its alum networking. And as far as I know, Kelley is doing kind of much better than Simon in the Intern hunting of Class 2010, and also in the Job hunting of Class 2009.

I think placement plus academic education are almost enough for me to make a decision.

Thank you very much again for your time, consideration, and help. You are very helpful. I really hope that I could do something for you just like you helped me. I would let you know my going on.

Your sincerely
He T. T.

Testimonial from Jerry
Dear all

今天我剛好遇在台大到學弟 我剛好要跟DAVID在台大討論寫學校的ESSAY 知道學弟很煩 就叫學弟來跟DAVID聊一下 如果禮拜日學弟有去的話 可以問他一下大概的狀況

老實說我覺得代辦到現在感覺都不錯 當初找DAVID主要是我覺得人生真的很沒方向 什麼都是用分數定高低 分數決定你未來的出入 分數決定你的一下 三月初的時候 因為已經準備快五個月了 都沒有什麼進步 對自己超沒有自信的

所以我把跟DAVID第一次會面當作是看心理醫生 後來進而了解到DAVID主要的強項是幫你找到自己的人生方向 再依據你的興趣 專業 個性 去找適合你的學校或是職業 我覺得還滿開心的 一直再挖以前的歷練 原來我做過不少事情 一大推ESSAY的點一直跑出來 所以覺得自己的自信心跟目標的力量也越來越強大 我也越來越知道我現在的努力是為什麼 有一種我現在蹲下 只是為了要跳更遠的感覺出現 應該是DAVID幫我歸納出一個明確的目標吧

跟他談完的人 搞不好會發現你根本就對這個東西沒有興趣或是沒有動力的 我想有的人可能會覺得 如果我根本不喜歡現在所做的事情 會不會太晚了 我都幾歲了 我以前是什麼科系的 所以出入就應該是這些科系

我覺得有趣的是 DAVID是透過言談間慢慢去找出你的方向跟學校 (她姐好像是心理醫生-應該是在這邊做個產業結合) 所以你所進要念的學校 都是在加強你的不足或是興趣的方面 對我而言 感覺比較有方向了 當然你也越來越知道自己缺少什麼 或是你的強項是什麼 老實說!寫這封信 就是想問你們大家 想不想跟DAVID聊聊之類的 因為我覺得這筆錢花得還滿值得吧!(295美金) 對!!真的很貴!! 但出國念書都不止這個錢了 更別說去念了你一個完全沒有興趣課程的學校還要花個一兩年的時間

主要我是覺得還不錯啦!! DAVID跟我也是代辦的關係而已 但我會挺他跟挺讀書會的道理是一樣的 所以有意願的 我可以幫大家私下約個時間一起談 唉!!搞得我好像再代辦 但我真的滿推薦的

Dear David兄弟, Thank you again, David!你熱心的用你的才能幫忙了和我一樣的許多人! 你在挖掘別人的潛能超有天分,還好當初趁你老兄出國前有把握住一次essay諮詢的機會,在那次短短的時間內學到寶貴的“倒三角”essay撰寫心法!現 在回想起申請第一間馬里蘭寫的essay內容,簡直是$%#,哈哈哈..還好有先找你指點,在大幅修改內容後送出申請文件,才能順利被錄取。 與你討論過馬大的essay的方向後,有捕捉到一些撰寫essay的基本邏輯,本來想申請時候可以好好尋求你的幫忙,可惜那一次後,過沒多久你就飛去T- Bird深造了,也正式開啟你忙碌的MBA生活。嘿嘿,雖然說你很熱情可以用網路幫忙,但是我知道你每天忙碌的生活後,實在不好意思再麻煩你幫忙看其他的 essay文件。 撰寫essay的過程讓我挫折到想找專人諮詢,但是因為時間、金錢及心理感覺等因素,我並沒有找坊間的代辦分擔這些勞務,我所採用的是藉由網路獲取的資料 摸索逐步前進,繁瑣的申請文件全部都經由自己撰寫及修訂,再申請摸索的過程花了太多的時間,導致能丟的學校跟輪次並非最佳,甚至有些真正想申請的學校都過 了期限無法完工,只好放棄申請。 真的是千金難買早知道,我總共申請9間學校,目前為止也幸運的拿到6間的admission,但自己看看最後所有申請的學校組合起來實在奇怪!! 我這種閉門造車的申請學校方式真的很沒效率。回顧自己在DIY申請MBA過程中,我發現可以改善的空間很大,尤其是選取學校的部分。假使能藉助對學校深刻 的認識,一開始做好選校的申請規劃,我想我申請的學校及時間點一定會不一樣。現在回頭來看自己所丟的學校跟時間真的太隨性,太欠缺良好的策略規劃。 總之,在漫長的DIY MBA申請過程中,我獲得了寶貴的經驗與教訓,透過別人的幫忙,真的可以減低很多錯誤摸索的時間。David你的潛能分析能力很可貴,除了幫大家申請 MBA時候非常有用外,還可以想想怎麼發揮更大的效果. 祝你一切順心如意...
 
Admitted by UT-Austin--感謝David顧問教室
話說我只是申請MPA,沒想過要請留學顧問-又貴又沒用 就自己搞了許久 但SOP始終搞不定.. 一直在版上有看到David的文..想想這人講話有時候還蠻機車的. 不如請他給個建議好了..應該會一針見血.. 眼看David就要飛出去了 終於提起勇氣就請這個陌生男子幫忙.. David先讓我填了張問卷,然後看問卷再問我問題.. Why MPA? 這個問題我也思考過許多次..因為很多人問我Why not MBA? 在跟David聊過後 堅定我選擇MPA的心,也對未來理出個方向... 再來就是改SOP了,關於順序跟表達的方式 David幫了許多忙 當然我最後還是有請在國外的人潤稿,但基本上比我的原版精簡多了(UIUC只要三百字) 我一直對自己沒信心..覺得 Austin大概是白繳錢的..沒想到居然上了.. 總共申請四家UIUC, UT-Austin, UT-dallas, Texas A&M TAMU沒上. 其他都上了 ~~感謝David~~

UT-Austin (Accounting #1), UIUC (scholarship, Accounting also #1), UT-Dallas (scholarship)

I was about to apply MBA, never thought about hiring agencies, waste money and useless, then I did it by myself for a long while, I still couldn’t fix my Statement of Purpose (SOP).

I always read David’s articles on the website, and this guy was quite outspoken, why not asking for his help? It should be very sharp and to the point.
While David was about to study abroad, I finally encouraged myself to seek help from David.
David first asked me to fulfill the Career Assessment Sheet, and then asked me “Why MPA?” while reading it. I thought about this question many times, because others always asked me “Why NOT MBA?” After consulting with David, I made up my mind to study MPA, and figured out my career path.

Later, I revised my SOP and consulted David about sequence and presenting my idea, and of course I asked someone oversea to review my materials, but it was basically much concise than my original draft. (UIUC required only 300 words.)

I was always not confident of myself, and I thought applying UT-Austin was a waste of my money…but I got admitted!

I applied for four schools, UIUC, UT-Austin, UT-Dallas, and Texas A&M. I only missed TAMU, and got admitted by other three schools.

~Thank you, David~
 
申請經驗分享+對傷咖及大衛李的感謝
分享心得遲了點,但是還是希望能夠提供未來申請的朋友一些參考
Profile: GMAT 710 Work experience: 5 yrs (2yrs military), last was PM in a high-tech company

申請結果: 2006~2007 second round Admitted: Indiana University – Bloomington (Kelley) --- Accept offer
Ohio State University (Fisher) University of Minnesota – Twin Cities (Carlson)
Rejected: University of Michigan – Ann Arbor (Ross) Duke University (Fuqua) University of Texas – Austin (McCombs)
感 覺申請上競爭比前一年(06)激烈,不過還是能申請到各方面都很均衡的Kelley 申請過程中最困難的(除了GMAT…)就是選校及Essay撰寫了,我並沒有找代辦,我認為傷咖的許多文章討論對我幫助非常大,節省很多摸索時間,但是我 要特別感謝"大衛"(davidlee), 大衛在課業繁忙中仍熱心抽空幫助我! 簡單來說選校及Essay撰寫就是圍繞著”Fit”,在進入Kelley這幾週以來,我越來越能夠體會大衛當初再三提醒Fit的重要性,大衛當初對 Kelley的認識,也非常的正確 大衛也幫助我釐清許多申請的迷思,幫助我了解各校的資源強弱,讓我順利錄取理想的學校 David, you are really exceptional!!! 心得: FIT真的非常重要! 建議多思考自己的興趣結合可以提供資源的Program, 並和校友請教該校的文化及學校發展方向 祝大家都能申請到”FIT”的學校!

[分享]與大衛閒聊後有感
眾所皆知,大衛在版上的熱心是有目共睹,我也在GMAT中的RC版獲益良多, 在面臨出國申請學校的繁雜手續及忙不完的ESSAY中,我厚著臉皮向大衛請益,雖然他的課業繁忙,但還是願意跟我分享他的申請經驗.
我自認我自己的學經歷不差,分數也還可以,但在寫ESSAY時總是覺得缺了什麼,在跟大衛聊過之後,我必須說他的觀察力幫助我找到自己所忽略的事項,雖然這些事項對我們來說沒什麼,可是對老外來說可是一個重點,這時才真的了解文化的差異對申請者來說有很大的影響力.

我 相信有很多很優秀的申請者也面臨跟我一樣的問題,在沒有找代辦的情況下,一個人申請真的很像瞎子摸象般無助,雖然我很enjoy申請的過程,因為就像站上 很多大牛說的,申請的過程是對自己人生到目前為止的檢視,但我也擔心若因此沒上該怎麼辦?因此我建議要自己辦的申請者在申請過程中,一定要找有國外mba 經驗的人幫你審視文章,我相信這個過程更可以補足你所缺乏的文化劣勢.
最後趁這機會跟大衛道聲謝,希望我有機會可以請你喝個酒,還你這個人情

MIT applicant
Everybody knows, David is enthusiastic on the website and well-recognized, I also gained a lot from his reading technique for GMAT exam. Facing the miscellaneous application process and ever-lasting essay writing, I asked for David’s help as a stranger. Even though he was busying on his MBA academy, he was still willing to share his application experience.

I was confident of my experience and academy power, and my scores were pretty competitive, but I always felt something missing in my essay package. After talking to David, I have to strongly recognize him that his delicate sense about details helped me figure out the missing part, although it was not a big deal to us, those elements may mean significantly to Westerners. At the mean time, I figured out the cultural intelligence can make great difference on applications.

I believe lots of competitive applicants are facing the same obstacles as I did, without application agencies, it was really helpless in the dark. Although I enjoyed the application process, but just like lots of “celebrity applicants” on the website, the application process is an examination of your life to date. While I was also worried about what if I fail? I suggest self-applicants seeking help from experts who studied MBA themselves to revise your application package, and I believe it’ll greatly help on your cultural intelligence.

Finally, I have to thank David for your great help, and treat you a beer party, I owe you one.
 
謝謝大衛的熱情分享
Actcard

謝謝大衛的熱情分享, 有問必答, 有忙必幫, 全力協助解決每個人的疑難雜症. 很多時候自己看不到的盲點, 在別人的眼裡卻是非常的清楚! 昨晚藉由閒聊的方式, 大衛引導大家透過一步步抽絲剝繭的問答方式, 從中發掘自己的motivation與core competence, 這樣的方式不僅是申請學校, 對於尋找工作也很有幫助.
 
大衛的說明真的很精彩
大衛的說明真的很精彩....很明顯感覺得出來他對這方面的passion 經過整個討論後,對我最大的收穫,主要在如何去重視與發掘自己內心的聲音,加上david的多家學校特性說明,可以讓我在apply的路上感覺更清楚、更 具體了些。 畢竟MBA是個工具,但必須首先真實面對自己的性格、興趣,進而利用這個工具讓自己發光發熱,甚至樂在工作、樂在生活.. 真的是蠻棒的一次經驗啦。

大衛講座太精采啦! 我找到了自己最想要生涯規劃 了解到寫essay的盲點 大衛也給了我很多其他的建議和靈感 很感謝大衛無私的熱情分享^^
