What People Say

Helen’s expert guidance and personal touch were crucial to my application success. She gave me nuanced insights about my profile, empowered me to meet deadlines, and gave great suggestions on writing my personal statement. For a while, I wasn’t sure how to best capture my story, but Helen aptly identified the strongest parts of my background and talents, and helped me weave that into my writing. Thanks to her, I was accepted to Columbia, NYU, UCLA, and USC schools of law. I can’t recommend her enough!
