Bendegúz Dörnyei, a student at Illyés Gyula High School in Budaörs who graduated last year, has been accepted to Yale University. Dörnyei told Telex:
It took many years of work, hundreds of hours of application time, failures, but it all paid off in the end. In addition to getting in, I also managed to get the maximum scholarship, almost 98%, which means $86,300 for next year.”
Of the many prestigious universities, he applied to Yale because of its flexible education system. “After a year of undergraduate studies, I have the time to decide which major to pursue,” he explained. “Moreover, you don’t have to give up any ambitions, because, in addition to being very supportive of your major, you can take courses of a different nature and have the resources to do so.”
