With only three weeks until college application deadlines, my computer screen was blank. I had made little progress with my college essays, except for a few scattered ideas I failed to cultivate. I found myself not only lost but also flustered by the seemingly dreadful task that is writing college essays. Working with Margery was undoubtedly the key to my success in the grueling college process. She guided me through every stage, from developing a strategy and brainstorming ideas to writing powerful essays of great impact and substance. In the few weeks we had, we managed to go above and beyond. Thanks to Margery’s guidance, great communication, constructive criticism and expert editing skills, I was able to work to my full potential – not to mention to mature as a writer.
