Grad School Admissions Consulting

 

We also help students with more than just essays.  Having been through it ourselves, we can help students walk through the process of selecting and applying to graduate school.  

We provide guidance and feedback on what tests to take and when, how to choose schools, how to present yourself, what to write in the essays, how to manage the recommendation process, and more.  We've helped our friends, family members and other students successfully navigate the grad school process.

Unlike most other admissions advisors, we've seen the career outcomes of students after graduate school firsthand, and are happy to share the anecdotal experiences of us, our friends, and our families.
