STUDENT TESTIMONIALS

I will keep these essays for the rest of my life. They are truly the most prized pieces of writing I have ever done. — IN

Thank you for encouraging me and standing by me. I really appreciate your commitment to my success. — MB

Your fantastic feedback and unwavering support are what allowed me to finish my essays and get into EVERY school I applied to! — AU

You made the writing process as painless as possible. — ST

I was amazed how you understood me and my story so well and really pushed me to write from the heart and write something that felt true to me. You helped me find joy in writing essays (never thought that would happen!), and I will surely bring that to college with me. And one of the biggest gifts you gave me was knowing with every acceptance AND every rejection that I did everything in my power to put my truest self into my application. Beyond that, there was nothing more I could have done, and that gave me such peace in a challenging time. — SD

I remember going to start my essay, and I literally had nothing to write about. I probably brainstormed by myself for at least 10 hours. Finally, I called you, and you talked me through my life to find something really unique I could write about. Once we found the topic, I was so excited. I wrote the rough draft on my own, and then you read it. You helped me rewrite and rewrite to find my voice and message. Your critique really helped me write my best essay ever. — AM

I felt so confident navigating the admissions process because you made my application feel polished and deeply true to who I am. — MA
