“Ellen was instrumental in my receiving several interviews and acceptances to medical school. Through her coaching, she taught me skills that took my personal statement and secondary applications from quite boring pieces of writing to essays that I am genuinely proud of. She also conducted and reviewed mock interviews with me so when the real interviews came, I felt more than prepared. She was very flexible and super responsive. Her compassion, kindness, and expertise made this stressful, discouraging process much easier. I cannot recommend Ellen enough!”
