I've just received decision letters from USC and am happy to report that I've been accepted into the CS MS program! In fact, I got into all three concentrations that I chose! I can't thank you enough for guiding me through the application process; I couldn't have done it without your help.
I worked with Esmeralda Cardenal during the admissions process and applied to four schools. I had worked with consulting services before, but have always been kind of disappointed with the results. I was definitely a little doubtful at first but decided to give it a shot because I wasn’t confident in my ability in submitting an application that brought out my best. I realized after going through the process that I absolutely would not have achieved what I did without her assistance and support. She was an integral part of my applications, especially with the multiple essays required by the schools. I needed help crafting a story that highlighted my strengths and depicted why I need a graduate degree, and that’s exactly what Esmeralda did. Sometimes we sent the essays back and forth four or five times, but she was detailed and patient each time in pointing out the things that could be further improved.
I didn’t think I was a very strong candidate because I didn’t have a stellar GPA and have never worked in large companies, but with her help, I got accepted to McCombs’s MSM and Fuqua’s MMS program. Still waiting on one more, but I already know I’m going to Duke because I also received a pretty great scholarship!! I definitely never imagined I would be a scholarship candidate, especially since I applied during the second to last deadline. It’s hard to put into words how amazing she’s been during this process. If I were to pursue further studies or have friends that are looking for consulting services, I would undoubtedly recommend Esmeralda and Accepted to them. Many many thanks to Esmeralda and the Accepted team. Please continue to do what you guys do so that students like myself are one step closer to their dreams and goals!!
Later updated: I received a $30,000 scholarship [to Duke], which would not have been possible without your help! As I said, I wouldn't have been able to accomplish what I did without your guidance. You've helped so many people so you might not be able to feel the impact, but this essentially changes the course of my entire future! So thank you once again, and let's absolutely stay in touch!
- Accepted to McCombs and Fuqua
Dear Ms. Abraham,
I hope this email finds you well. I am writing this email to express my deepest gratitude to you and Dr. Barry Rothman. Over the course of the last five months, I have been working closely with Dr. Rothman on my graduate nursing application for Nurse Practitioner school. Dr. Rothman provided a safe, non-judgmental space for me to vocalize my feelings and experiences. His feedback throughout this process was thoughtful, and often pushed me to be a better writer.
However, his support did not end there, he was an excellent resource during my interview process by providing mock interviews. With the guidance, I received from Dr. Rothman, I was allowed to create a clearly written personal statement full of passion, maturity, and growth. In fact, the head of the program sent an email stating how much she enjoyed reading my personal statement. Initially, I was very hesitant to apply to any program, I possessed a severe lack of confidence due to my not so stellar grades from my first undergraduate degree.
In fact, I was hesitant to apply to Duke University, after some encouragement from Dr. Rothman I applied and was accepted. I am truly grateful for all of your help, and you are nothing short of amazing. Thanks for believing in me at times more than I believed in myself.
- Accepted to Duke University & Drexel University
And with that, I am beyond excited to say that I will be attending Stanford's MSCS program this fall!!
I honestly didn't think it was possible and am still in disbelief sometimes that I got into my top choice, but somehow it's real and I couldn't have done it at all without your help. Thank you so, so much for your support and time in helping me apply, especially when you had your hands full with helping so many other people who were also going through a similar experience.
I can't express my gratitude enough - I truly do appreciate everything you've done to help, whether it was being so responsive and patient with me during the application process, providing advice and support, or even being someone I know I can just simply fully trust and rely on for any help.
