Barry's support and guidance in my MPH application process has been invaluable for several reasons. As a corporate professional for many years, I have been away from the academics context for a long time, and Barry helped me understand what the admissions committee might be looking for, and how my materials such as Resume should look like. Given I had done my previous degrees outside the United States, it was also extremely useful to get Barry's thoughts and advice on how academic institutions and their review process might be. Barry's advice around all this gave me tremendous confidence that I was not shooting the dark without context.
I also appreciate Barry's style of reviewing my preparation. He was subtle at dropping hints to improve my essays and actually making grammatical changes to the sentences without actually changing the entire story or intention I wanted to convey. He also offered advice around extracurriculars and additional experiences that might increase my chances of acceptance at the schools.
Overall, Barry's support and review gave me the confidence that I was putting my best application forward. In the end, that also secured me acceptances from the majority of the top schools I was targeting, including the Ivy-leagues.
I wanted to let you know that I got accepted into Upenn's Master's of Education program.
Thank you very much for all your support and understanding during the process. You exude professionalism and empathy. I'm grateful that I have worked with you and the accepted team. Thank you again.
I had the privilege of working with Carol Drummer from accepted.com on my application for a masters program in Speech and Language Pathology. I was very nervous about the whole process, because SLP programs are extremely competitive, I had some poor grades early on in
college, and I had previously been rejected. Within 5 minutes of talking with Carol, I knew that hiring her was the right decision. She had insight and suggestions that I would have never considered on my own. Her essay editing and overall coaching were excellent and I was accepted! When I learned I got into SLP school, Carol was one of the first people I called. I thanked her and told her that she had literally changed my life. I know for a fact that I could not have achieved this milestone without her help.
Thank you for your kind note and my wife and I are super excited about going back to school; especially to UC Berkeley.
Dr. Barr was such a great help to guide both of us through the process, we were very happy to work with him. -- Accepted to Ph.D. programs at UC Berkeley and UCSC.
I hope you are doing well!! I just wanted to update you on my admissions process. I was able to get into USC, Seattle University and UW! ... I just committed to UW and am very excited! Thank you again for all your help, I really appreciate it!!
I am happy to say that both my scholarship applications are officially submitted with all pertinent documents! I really enjoyed working with you. I like the options you gave me in the beginning as to how to approach the papers. I feel that I had good practice writing these papers with you, which I definitely need to continue to work on in my program. You were very timely getting back to me, and were patient with me when I didn't return the papers/emails on my end - so I really appreciate that! And at last, the end product was beautiful. You helped me tie all my thoughts together and I felt that you edited it a perfect amount, so my voice was still heard in the essay. Thank you so much - these essays were beautifully put together and I could NOT have done it without you. I believe my writing has improved along the way too.
I WAS AWARDED THE MUJICA SCHOLARSHIP, THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!
