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.
