“I wanted to thank you so much for offering this class, and let you know that our daughter was accepted at her top choice university (U-M)! She’ll be a freshman at Michigan in the fall. As a parent, I wanted to share my gratitude for making this college essay class available. We used the resources you provided, which helped our daughter prepare and focus her essay – and they supported me in parenting my first child through the college application process. Writing is a skill that will serve her well throughout her life, and your class was a part of that development. ” -N.N. June, 2022
