Jeon Jeon-ju (Pre-Oriental Medicine 1)

Q. Why did you choose the on-time screening method? Also, I’m curious about what motivated you to apply to our university.
I graduated from a special purpose high school, but there was something lacking in my personal management and student record activities. Also, I thought it would be difficult to get into the university I wanted, so I chose the regular admissions process. As a result of applying to the medical field of my choice, I was finally admitted to Kyunghee University’s Pre-Oriental Medicine Department. Just like ‘Kyunghee University’, oriental medicine university comes to mind, I decided that the merits that could be obtained through the major department of a school would be great.

Q. Do you have your own application strategy and secret to success?
I searched for entrance exam information on my own and set aside an hour a day every day to study and analyze. In the process, I was able to objectively grasp my position. After that, I applied to the university after gaining confidence using the mock application program on the application site. Students will also apply for mock applications through various programs. You should look at your score here objectively and avoid overestimating or underestimating it. Also, I would like to say that if you are a student receiving consulting in the on-time application process, it is good to study the entrance exam to some extent in advance, such as the rate of reflection that is favorable to you and the rate of reflection of the university you want to attend.

Q. Please tell us about your past year as a college student.
It was a year in which I did everything I wanted to as it was a school that I passed after a long examination period. When you become a college student, you have more personal time and a greater sense of responsibility. However, the most memorable thing in my college life so far is the experience of cramming on the day of the final exam of my major, and I was not in good shape, so I ruined the exam.

Q. Is there anything you would like to say to prospective newbies who dream of entering Kyunghee University?
If we are to brag about our school, first of all, the campus is really pretty, so it’s a pleasure to attend. There are many places to eat around the school. When the face-to-face class starts next year, I think it would be good for newbies to walk through the cherry blossom-filled Kyunghee Land and then to the Kyunghee University Pajeon Alley. I hope that you will come to Kyunghee University and create a life that develops day by day. Be sure to pass!
