“I gained a better understanding of the application process, as well as what I am capable of as a writer."
“It's less stressful with March Consulting's guidance than trying to do it all by yourself. When I finished, I felt that my application and essays were a complete and very honest representation of who I am.”
“I had complete peace of mind throughout the hectic application process. It was nice having all my applications done and it made senior year an astronomically less stressful process.”
