CollegeLAH is a website by the students for the students, featuring the honest story of applications and university life as told by Malaysians. It’s a non-profit social project to help Malaysian students to achieve their higher-education dreams and inspire them to reach their full potential. We aim to become a hub of resources to students – it’s easy to find out the steps of a process, but what we want to do is to bring real experiences and tried-and-tested advice to students who are both in the midst of planning their higher education route and who are going through the process now, so that they are better equipped and more prepared when the time comes.
Has the time finally come for you to make those college decisions?
“How’s life studying in a country 9000 miles away from home? Will I have a culture shock?”
“What are the differences between education systems in various countries? Which one suits me the most?”
“How do I know which subject to major in? What if I make the wrong decision?”
“How am I supposed to write admissions essays on topics like ‘How are apples and oranges supposed to be compared?'”
“It’s so expensive to study overseas! How can I secure a scholarship?”
At first glance, the decisions you have to make for pre-university and university applications may look daunting, but remember, you are not alone.
We know how you feel because we are a team of students who have gone through the exact same phase in our lives. Now that we’ve “pulled through” unscathed (almost), let us help you debunk college application myths and answer any questions you have on applications, college life, or even just life in general.
But first, let’s get this straight: we don’t have crystal balls, nor do we claim to be admissions gurus. However, we do have first-hand experiences and opinions that we would love to share with you!
