A Note from Our Founder

"What do I love about admissions consulting?

I've always been fascinated by people's life stories. Ever since I was a young child, I have loved reading biographies. And everyone – not just the famous – has a story. Discovering that story, and helping applicants articulate it, is a fascinating process.

Additionally, the editing process is a game to me. I was a writing tutor as an undergrad at UCLA and received excellent training there. I found then, and still find today, that figuring out the best way to express a phrase or tell a story is like solving a puzzle. Almost as good as Sudoku. Finally, I love hearing, ‘Thank you. I’m in!"

Client Feedback
A really big thank you for taking pains to understand my profile, editing all the brain dumps into winning essays. And more importantly you've kept the communication channels open and answered silliest of doubts I had and that to me was invaluable. I should thank my friend who recommended me accepted.com and I am definitely going to recommend your services to my friends/acquaintances. Read more
