“We met with students this week as a group and I asked them if anybody took the courses and what they thought, and I heard from everyone that it was very helpful and they all loved it... So many students came back from summer close to being done with their essay. I’ve never had a class that far along so early and I can’t wait to see how it opens up their schedules and mine this fall.”
— Piotr, Counselor (2018)
I followed every step from you’re videos for the Main Personal Statement essay and my college advisor was wowed by my first draft. I made some small changes and now it’s finished. I just wanted to thank you for that.
— Tea, Student (2018)
