Elvis Rodriguez Profile:

Elvis Rodriguez, graduated high school from Dubai International Academy with exceptional academic grades in his final IB year; and secured a 32/34 on his ACT. Elvis applied for majors in Economics and Statistics to universities in the US and the UK, and received offers from many top universities like University of Michigan Ann Arbor, University of Texas at Austin, University of Washington, UC San Diego, Purdue, UIUC, Wisconsin Madison, UM Twin Cities, Warwick, UCL, UBC and many more. He accepted his offer from University of California Los Angeles for the undergraduate program in Statistics, and Mathematics of Computation.

Elvis's Testimonial:

"I vividly remember my first meeting: entering the room, I was eager to discuss my future beyond high school and to share ideas, yet anxious to meet unfamiliar faces. I stared at the clock as it struck two, signaling the start of the meeting. In enter Varun and Roshan; with introductions aside, we got straight to business. “So, what are your interests?” Hesitant at first, I explained in detail what I intended to pursue. Noting down my inputs, they promised to accommodate my interests, and they delivered; through dedication and support, college lists, test preparation, cups of coffee, and numerous drafts of essays, I was accepted into UCLA.

There are not enough words in this paragraph to express my gratitude for Varun and Roshan, and their work. I can assure prospective students that they are in good hands at Brighter Prep."

Wishing you luck in your future endeavours at the JLT office!
