Song

Bio

Song graduated cum laude from the University of Southern California, where she studied Sociology and was a research assistant studying economic redevelopment in South Central Los Angeles. After college, she moved to Seoul for a bit of soul-searching, while working for the then leader of the progressive party in Korea. Song went on to receive her J.D. from NYU School of Law, and upon graduation was awarded the Kirkland & Ellis Fellowship. With her law degree, she practiced as a civil rights lawyer for five years, and was recognized as one of 100 Leading Women Lawyers in New York by Crains New York for her work. Song is now a first year MBA candidate at the Yale School of Management.

Even when she was a practicing lawyer, Song’s favorite moments day to day involved mentoring and teaching students. Previously, she taught SAT classes for the Princeton Review in Seoul. Now, she tutors students on standardized tests including the GRE, SAT, and TOEFL. Song also coaches students on their college and graduate school applications. Having gone through more than her fair share of application cycles, she cares deeply about making the process as minimally anxiety-producing as possible for others.

Outside of school, you can find Song at the ice hockey rink, painting her favorite sports action shots, or facetiming with her human and puppy nieces.

Testimonials
  • Testimonial Citation: 
    "I worked with Song on general MBA application strategies and to prepare for an MBA interview. Song struck the perfect balance between being personable and professional, and provided exactly the type of help I needed (and more!) as a non-traditional MBA applicant. She went above and beyond with her service delivery, sending me materials that I wasn’t able to find on my own and helping me really figure out what aspects of the school’s culture that I wanted to match my personal narratives to. I can confidently say that, without her help, I would not have been nearly as confident during my interview, and I am very glad that I got to work with her during my MBA application process. I wholeheartedly recommend her as an MBA strategy and interview prep coach to anybody fortunate enough to come across her during their MBA application journey."

    "Song is fantastic. Her knowledge of the hiring process from the hiring manager’s perspective provided keen insight on how to make my resume stick out from the pack. And her advice on interviewing was equally great. During an interview, the interviewer took a moment to stare at my resume and exclaimed “this is incredible.” I got the job. It’s hard for me to put into words how great she is, but that’s what we have Song for."
