Rohan was amazing! He made very helpful edits and has great insight on my topic..

Jaylin

Your review of my essays and suggestions really helped me elevate my story and stand out. I believe my essays were the reason I got into schools like UC Davis and UC Irvine when so many were rejected this year.

Elan

College Contact has taken away 80% of the stress in our household. I have to say this has been one of the best things that we have offered our son during this process.

Susan

Anya Gupta was the BEST!!! She was so nice to work with and provided me with so much guidance while keeping things positive and helped me get into my schools!

Meleni

Diya was super fast and helpful, almost every comment was meaningful and there were so many in a good way. I also really appreciated the positive reinforcment.

Avery

My mentor Thomas helped me shorten my essay and effectively combine sentences. He gave me great insight into what college admissions counselors look for in essays and told me how I could use examples of my impacts to make them more interested. He was great!

Caity

I got into my first choice program and school! I was accepted, and committed, to Sacred Heart University in the MSPAS physician assistant program. They only accept 42 students and I will go right through without having to apply for grad school. Thank you so much for thinking of me and for your help!

Jillian

 Isabella was incredibly helpful in editing and revising both my Common App essay and Cornell supplements. Her unique perspective as an English major at Cornell really enhanced the quality of all pieces of writing submitted for review.

Alexander

I got into my top choice at Washington University in St Louis (WashU) for a premed track. Thanks so much for your help with the application process I really appreciate it.
