I feel like the luckiest person in the world that I found you! Selina came home from school crying about the negativity she was experiencing in the college application process. After her first meeting with you she was so relieved by your expert knowledge and calm demeanor. You came in, took charge, and I am happy and proud that Selina can now attend the college of her choice. –Tammy S. (parent), University of Washington

You blew me away, Dane. I thought my college essays were pretty good. But the way you broke the prompts down, dissected what I had written, and created a template for my personal statement showed me what true excellence is. Thanks so much for helping me get into my top choice college. –Minh T., UCLA
