Project Description

I first began working with Dr. M and Ms. Ingerson near the end of my junior year. They were wonderful! From filling out the “Additional Information” section of the Common Application to explaining how college interviews work, they made sure to thoroughly explain all parts of the college application process. One area in which I’m particularly grateful for is their help with essay writing.

Writing has never been my strong suit. But Dr. M and Ms. Ingerson relentlessly worked with me to improve my essays. They pointed out parts of my “Why Essays” that were too vague, helped me find the perfect ending to my Common App essay, and worked miracles to help me cut down my supplemental essays to under the word limit. With their help, weeks before most of my applications were actually due, I had essays I was proud of.

I’m excited to say that, when March came along, I was accepted to my dream school!
