Class 101 helped me feel way more confident in the college application process! I am so grateful I was able to be a part of it and receive guidance while crafting my applications.
First of all, thank you so much for all your help and support during my application process. I couldn’t have done it without you and I am so grateful for all if your advice and guidance throughout it all. Class 101 was an amazing help with both standardized test preparation and completing college applications. The biggest help for me was the constant review and revision that you offered and your guidance through applying to college for the first time.
