On October 30, 2013, at the Information Resource Center, U.S. Embassy Vientiane, Laos organized the second Education USA presentation of the month. The presentation was given by Amy Jarich, Assistant Vice Chancellor and Director of Admissions at the University of California; Berkeley. Ms. Jarich spoke generally about the U.S. university admissions process, and gave details on the specific steps that students who are interested in studying at her institution should take. She also gave pointers on finding the right degree program, as well as what admissions departments are looking for in an application. Over 40 students attended the presentation. Laos has received a handful of visits from U.S. university representatives this year, a telling sign that an increasing number of Lao students are interested in studying in the U.S.
