Basketball scholarship in the USA
“Now I can live MY American dream! Until recently it was just a dream, but now, thanks to the valuable help of UNI Student Advisors, this dream has come true”. The UNI Student Advisors team is proud to have helped Sami achieve his dream: to study in America while continuing to practice his sport!
And it is thanks to the sport he has been practicing for many years, basketball, that Sami has been awarded a scholarship to cover 100% of his tuition, room & board, health insurance and travel expenses.
Choosing the most suitable colleges according to Sami's preferences and aptitudes was the first step we took. The work was long and challenging, just as Sami himself says: "We contacted hundreds of universities throughout the United States. This helped me to have a better chance of finding the college that best suited my needs. I was particularly impressed with the college knowledge of the UNI Student Advisors team. America has thousands and thousands of colleges that are not easy to find if you don't rely on the advice of professionals; I am very satisfied with the options that UNI Student Advisors team has offered me".
Another important step was to manage relations and negotiations with the coaches. "I think that the help of the UNI Student Advisors team was fundamental while contacting the various coaches, I must thank them for always being available and on time. The e-mail conversations were handled entirely by them, while during the telephone and Skype conversations, with them by my side, I always felt comfortable managing these contacts. The UNI Student Advisors team and the CEO personally suggested what to say and I was also prepared for the answers to possible questions that coaches usually ask during phone conversations with athletes. The CEO's long experience has certainly played a key role in enabling me to face the interviews with the coaches in the best possible way".
Last but not least, UNI Student Advisors supported Sami in the many bureaucratic procedures that the admission process requires: "The help of the UNI Student Advisors team in the bureaucratic part of the process has been crucial as there are many complicated formalities to follow, and without their explanation and support I would not have been able to follow them all correctly".
The support of UNI Student Advisors has allowed Sami to achieve important results and make his dream come true.
"...I knew that without good help it would have been difficult to reach my goal. If you are an athlete and your goal is to study in the United States and continue to practice your sport at the highest level, I absolutely recommend that you use the services of UNI Student Advisors for efficiency, kindness and support, as well as professionalism. UNI Student Advisors has given me an end-to-end support throughout the process. Being followed by professionals like them throughout the process definitely makes a difference to the end result".
After 12 months of hard work and over 100 universities contacted by our team, Sami has obtained a scholarship for basketball that covers the entire school fee and the costs of room and board.
