Hi! I'm Karen Tai and I recently graduated from Yale University, where I studied Molecular Biology. At Yale, I was involved in a number of community service organizations and spent lots of time in the laboratories conducting biomedical research. I've had extensive experience writing personal statements for admissions to schools as well as scholarships, such as the Rhodes Scholarship. I've also helped several clients gain admissions to their top school through advising and essay review session. I've studied at the University of Oxford for a Master's and am currently pursuing an MD at the Johns Hopkins University. In my free time, I love exploring new board games to play and testing out recipes in my kitchen. Excited to work with you in preparing for college and beyond! Feel free to opt into the essay review or reserve a time in my office hours for general admissions consultation or an essay brainstorming session.
