As for the college preparation months which every high school student approaches with anxiety and fear, I know that my college application process would not have passed as smoothly or successfully without Mrs. Kashman’s guidance, eagerness to help, and patience. Mrs. Kashman sat down with me until we thought of the best topic for me to write about for my college essay. She revised several drafts of it until it was ready to be sent to colleges. Besides her excellent knowledge of vocabulary and grammar, her suggestions truly led my college essay to great heights. She also assisted me with any other supplements which I was required to write for college applications. Mrs. Kashman always returned my writing revisions within a day or two of submitting them. She was always willing to help me and answer any questions I had during the application process. Mrs. Kashman has many years of experience helping students prepare for college. She is an intelligent, fun, friendly, and sincere individual, who I was honored to have met and worked with so closely.

I remember sitting down attempting to begin my college essay. As I wrote and re-wrote, I knew it was all wrong. I couldn’t find the right words to get my point across, and it was becoming all too overwhelming. After getting advice from another “expert,” I felt as if it was no longer my essay; however, this all changed when I met with Mrs. Kashman. Everything sort of fell into place. After meeting with Mrs. Kashman, I felt that she really understood me and what I was trying to say in my essay. She told me that she wasn’t going to write the essay for me but that she was going to lead me in the right direction. She not only helped me with my grammar and sentence structure, but she also helped me to take what I thought was something impossible to put to words, and create something beautiful.
If I had to choose only one person to help me with my college applications, it would be Mrs. Kashman. Mrs. Kashman proved to be an incredibly valuable resource in the college application process. Not only did her extraordinarily critical eye help me improve my college essays, but also her astute insight and trustworthy advice regarding other aspects of my applications guided my creation of what I felt were the most impressive applications I could submit. I would not send one college application and essay without having Mrs. Kashman review it first. To put it simply: Mrs. Kashman knows what she’s talking about!

As English was not my first language, the prospect of handing in a very large thesis with many grammatical and style errors frightened me. Mrs. Kashman was able to help me even though this was a scientific paper. Not only did her help improve the clarity of my writing, but she made the paper easier to understand and she ensured that it was properly written even though it was full of scientific and medical concepts. Thank you!

Although many colleges do not require an interview, some colleges still encourage applicants to participate in a personal face-to-face interview. Some interviews are with admissions officers while others may be scheduled with alumni of the colleges to which you are applying. The interview is an excellent opportunity to learn more about a college and to allow the admissions officer to learn more about you.
