Emily Polanco

Emily PolancoWithout a doubt, School for Advanced Studies was the driving force that both integrated and acted as a transition from secondary school to university life. From taking the varied courses available in an extensive curriculum, to the more thorough relationships with teachers, these two years have developed my expectations to the point that ultimately led me to choose where I could possibly spend the next few years of my life. Looking at the prospects and experience as a graduate of this school is highlighting the advantages gained in a demanding career market, where I am confident my skills will excel.
