Since it was a last minute decision to apply to graduate school, when I contacted MK, I did not have much time and wanted to complete my application within two weeks. The quick and efficient worker she is, she responded to me with her initial comments and corrections by e-mail within 24, and we met once to finalize the essay together. I was able to send my application to the school by the end of the week, and it was one of the most beautiful and eloquent essays I have ever written. She did not take my voice out of my writing (which tends to happen when someone corrects one’s writing); it flowed more naturally; unnecessary details were removed to meet the word count, and of course, she made it a fun and enjoyable experience for me. I was accepted in to the program shortly afterwards. Thank you for all you have done for me, MK!!

Heading into the college application process, I was overwhelmed just thinking about all of the essays and applications I’d have to go through in only a matter of months. Having Mrs. Kashman share her talent and expertise with me is more than I ever could have asked for. She helped me find a voice in my writing and motivated me to keep working until I was completely satisfied with my results. Thank you so much for all of your help, Mrs. Kashman! I really couldn’t have done it without you!

It was late in the application stage when I first sat down with Mrs. Kashman, and I felt overwhelmed by the daunting personal statement application requirement. I possessed a piece of writing in which I felt no pride and no connection. Instead of simply editing my work, we spent our first meeting discussing my personal history and the experiences that shaped my development. Together, we found my “voice” and decided on a subject that supported my application. I appreciated that Mrs. Kashman didn't simply write the paper for me. Instead, we developed a theme that highlighted my strengths and she helped me build my narrative in our follow-up consultations. Several admissions counselors positively referenced details of my personal statement, confirming my belief that Mrs. Kashman had helped me find the right story to tell. Mrs. Kashman's help was exactly what I needed, and now I'm attending my dream school next fall.

Thank you for all of your help. I am very happy that we, with your help and quick work, were able to submit the applications before the November 1 deadline for Early Action. I will be referring you to my friends and family for your professionalism, quick turn-around and wonderful wordsmith skills.

Mrs. Kashman helped me to figure out what to write for my college essay and to perfect it. She certainly helped me to get into college. I couldn't have done it without her!
