Bard High School senior, going to Grinnell College ‘17

“I wanted to take the time to tell you how much I enjoyed working with you and tell you how helpful you were in my college process. Often times when I get outsiders to edit my work, it acquires a stilted quality that just, fundamentally, is not me. While that may be okay for school papers, it doesn’t fly in the college process. I really felt that I was heard and that you worked with me to preserve my authorial voice while fine-tuning my message. This was invaluable. You gave me the structure and support I needed to get it done. I feel much more confident about my applications because of you, and I thank you for that.”

“As a student athlete, my application process happened faster than all of my friends. Liz knew how to handle it and helped me every step of the way. She appreciates what being an athlete involves and how it goes together with being a student. I never felt like I had to explain myself to her; she just understood. I would work with Liz any time.”

“The common application is a critical but often overlooked component in the college process. My son is a very good student and athlete, but very good students don’t always get into top schools without the right balance of grades, standardized tests scores, athletic ability and yes, a well written common app. Working with a professional like Liz was a key ingredient to his admission into Amherst. Liz didn’t write one word of it; instead, she unlocked the creative juices in my son which allowed him to construct an essay which was lucid, concise and articulate.”
