Loved working with these counselors!! My counselor was so helpful and even if you don’t know where to start AT ALL by the end of the zoom call she helped you narrow down a list of topics you want to write about. She helped turn my bland essay into something more creative which was just the thing my essay needed! So sweet and so helpful with feedback and how to edit and make your essays better.
