What Cydney Has to Say

“For applicants immersed in science or technical fields, identifying and communicating what stands out can be especially challenging. I love that challenge, and I love digging deeper to uncover what’s unique about each person’s path – expect lots of questions from me! My particular skill is differentiating candidates in overrepresented sectors, overcoming low/mid-range GPA and test scores, and helping ‘non-writers’ present themselves in an authentic, compelling way. I also offer my clients the peace of mind that comes with a comprehensive strategy for navigating the application season. This involves not only expert input on essays and interviews but also insights into individual programs and the entire admissions process.”
