Recent College Admissions Student Success

I wanted to take the opportunity and thank you for your support and effort during the last couple of weeks, especially as you have also committed time on the weekends and during holidays!! This is much appreciated. I think that we managed to produce some very good essays in the end, which will hopefully be recognized by the schools.
