“Jennifer completely saved me during my last two years of high school. I was a good student, but knew absolutely nothing about the college application process. She helped me navigate the tricky college admissions process (which had multiple pieces), brainstorm strong essay topics, and write compelling essays. I ended up with a college application that I was really proud of and reflected who I really am. Jennifer is the reason I’m at Dartmouth today.  Thank you Jennifer!”
