When I discovered that the school I wanted to attend was also one of the top 15 in the nation, I knew that I was in for a challenging application process. And since I was also applying to a school of journalism, I knew that my writing was an even more essential part of my application. Working with Mrs. Kashman was a comprehensive process; she critiqued the approach, the tone, the language, and the overall interest level of my essay. She took the basic idea I had and helped me to turn it into a compelling essay. And thanks to working with her, I’m exactly where I want to be right now.
