    "I worked with Erin for medical school applications. She helped me transform my personal statement into an essay I was extremely proud of and supported me in writing supplemental essays for 23 schools. Erin is brilliant, kind and charismatic. She made me feel very comfortable from the first session. I loved spending time with her and she made working together fun and enjoyable. While working on essays, Erin helped me think critically about the structure of my essay and my word choice. She helped me reword ideas to make them sound great and helped me come up with anecdotes that jumped off the page. She also asked me thoughtful questions to further unpack why I am interested in particular topics or how my experiences have informed my professional vision, for example. Erin was reliable and very responsive, kind and professional. I would recommend Erin highly to anyone and hope to work with her again in the future."

    "Overall the experience was great. I had little to no knowledge of what my application should look like to be competitive prior to working with my coaches. My premed advisors weren’t as helpful as my coaches were. I also really enjoyed that my coaches were students as well. Erin was very helpful in strategically ordering details within the writing portions to have the best flow and deliver the most meaningful takeaway. She also helped with cutting word count but retaining meaning. I attribute much of the success I made this cycle from working with Erin and my strategy coach. The admin staff was super helpful and supportive as well.”
