Officially 4 for 4! Heard back from Harvard today 🙂 Just wanted to say an enormous thank you for all of your help in this process! I am pretty amazed at the results and couldn’t have done it without your thoughtful guidance and support…I got $50,000 for the first year at UCLA with a vague commitment for some assistance in the second, a full-tuition scholarship from USC for both years and $15,000 from Berkeley for the first year.
I cannot sing your praises enough. I am at Michigan thanks to all your help! Every time people ask for advice about the process I always recommend they check out Stratus. You have been a huge help over the past several months. There is no way I could have done it without your guidance.
I’m in the middle of my first week of classes at Lewis and Clark, and I just wanted to thank you for all of your help through the application process, as well as for helping me decide on the perfect school. I don’t think I could imagine myself anywhere else.
I realized how much I learned from my counselor. I learned to add specific details, to question every sentence and to double-check its significance in the essay… I also learned how to tell a story by focusing on the “why” and my learnings while sharing experiences.
Working with my Counselor elevated my essays to a higher level and helped me craft a unique story that wove together my passions, experiences and goals. My Counselor helped me maintain sanity through the stressful admissions process and gave me invaluable advice and inspiration when I needed it most. Ultimately, I was invited to interview at 7 of 8 schools and was accepted into my preferred program. I firmly believe that Stratus strengthened my candidacy tremendously.
