"Over the last week, I found out that I got into Stanford and Wharton offered me [a grant]... needless to say, I am very happy and going out to dinner tonight and to celebrate. One last thought I had regarding the W grant: your help went beyond helping me obtain admission to actually increasing my chances of getting offered a merit-based fellowship--talk about unexpected ROI :)"
"Yesterday, I got the good news, and it was from Harvard! I am absolutely thrilled. Amidst the euphoria, I want to take out a moment to thank Accepted for all the help, and in ways that went beyond admissions consulting - from motivating me when I received a bunch of rejections to almost yelling at me when I tried to make last minute tweaks to the essays."
"Jennifer has been such a great support to me during the application process. I would like to call out her resume edits specially, she shaped my resume into one that was crisp and yet very effective. She was very responsive and was supremely professional." - Accepted to Stanford GSB with a full scholarship!!
