My daughter was accepted at her first choice

I am so grateful for the help my daughter received from Mrs. McCracken. She encouraged my daughter to stick to a certain time-line, and with each edit from Mrs. McCracken, my daughter understood better and better what she still needed to do. By the end, my daughter was confident she had written an excellent Common App and felt her supplements really showed her individuality.

English is my second language

English is my second language, and I am a Math/Science person, so when I was applying to college, and saw how much writing there was, I felt really kind of lost. I also wasn’t clear about how personal the answers could be. Mrs. M helped with me during the process, really guiding me by making suggesting and making me think differently. By the end, I felt really good about what I had written about myself, and my interests. I think she gave me a better understanding of who I am. Thanks so much!

Thanks to Ahna, I managed to get into my dream college.

Before I met Ahna, I was apprehensive about the college process and about her sessions. Yet, after I met her, she reassured me with her kind and friendly nature. For my supplements, Ahna didn’t tell me exactly what to write, but instead guided me toward what I wanted to say and then helped me make it sound good on paper. During my interview, I was brimming with self-confidence because of the techniques and questions I reviewed with Ahna. Thanks to Ahna, I managed to get into my dream college.

I was paralyzed about what to write

Thank goodness for the calm presence of Ms. McCracken during the application process. I was paralyzed about what to write, and she asked me all the right questions, and then, suddenly, I knew what I had to offer. I ended up really enjoying writing the Common App, and feeling proud of my accomplishments.
