Being different to the first interview, in which students were mainly from the Southern of Viet Nam, in the second interview, many Northern, Middle and High Land students also came to TTU to participate in the interview, some of the provinces namely: Hà Nội, Hải Phòng, Thanh Hóa, Đắk Nông, Khánh Hòa, Lâm Đồng…and some from the Southern: Hồ Chí Minh, Long An, Vĩnh Long, Tiền Giang và Cần Thơ.
Accompanying with the participants, their parents had carefully found information about TTU before letting their children taking the enrollment. Some of them had only knew about TTU some months or even some weeks ago.
Mr. Phạm Thiên Sơn – Faculty of The Pedagogical College of Da Lat, and his son Pham Quang Hien had luckily knew about TTU 1 week ago when he was anxiously confiding with his relative about his son passion of being trained into a doctor in a high-standard university, which is promising very hard to become truth when the Ministry of Education and Training conducts the new method of higher education admission. His relative proposed TTU School of Medicine as one of the safe choice with the suitable entrance requirement but unique and exceeding quality of training. Then Mr. Phạm Thiên Sơn and his son were attracted by the training program, faculty and the U.S standard education of TTU. He shared his experiences: “When I first came to visit TTU, I found that every thing is good. I have taught and visited some Vietnamese Universities, among which TTU’s infrastructure is the best. I believe in the training quality of TTU and hope that my son will be recruited. ”
Mr. Phạm Quang Hiền (from Đà Lạt, Mr. Phạm Thiên Sơn’s son) confidently said: “Although I know that TTU is a new born university, but I do not take this into my consideration. I think that: the gap between the winer and the loser in not only their knowledge, but also their willpower and determination. Maybe, as a new established university, TTU certification is not highly appreciated, but I strongly believe in the training quality of TTU”
After a thousands-km North-South journey, then is over 40 km from Ho Chi Minh to TTU, Mrs. Phạm Thị Hương (a teacher from Thanh Hoa Province) and her daughter – Đào Huệ Linh have underwent a lot of feelings. 2 months ago, her family had taken a very important decision to allow her beloved daughter to enroll in TTU in Long An province, where is very far from her hometown. It was the first time she went to Long An, so she decided to come 1 day before the interview. Leaving behind her fear when being driven across deserted streets, she felt happy to stay free in TTU dormitory for some days.
Mrs. Phạm Thị Hương excitedly answered when being asked about her reason of choosing TTU: “My husband is a doctor, he highly appreciates the U.S education model, which encourages students updating the development of science in general and changes of medicine in particular. In fact, I have witnessed the difference in education at TTU: TTU talented high school offers full scholarship for all students. In the morning, students wake up early to do morning exercise or to learn; they straightly line up at the school-bus stop ; Every people I met is very friendly. I am sure that many parents want to send their children to TTU to learn. I see Mrs. Dang Thi Hoang Yen’s great dedication for our country’s education in what she has been doing at TTU. I now intend to let my youngest child to enroll in the TTU Talented High School, because I can feel family warm at TTU.”
