“Dos” for the parent essays:
Holly was an absolute life saver in helping us write our application essays. I was really struggling with the parent essays, and Holly helped with the content and the structure of the essays. I wrote some drafts on my own, and she gave me great feedback that helped me from straying off of topic. She also kept me on track time-wise throughout the process up until the very end. The quality of the essays was unbelievable. I had worked with other educational professionals on application essays in the past, but these essays were by far the best I had ever written! Holly puts her brain, heart, and soul into the application process with you. We were so lucky to work with her. I highly recommend her to anyone!

My husband and I were proud of all the work we put into filling out our daughter’s high school applications. We believed them to be thorough, articulate, and thoughtful. At the last minute, we thought maybe we should have Holly read it over. We are so glad we did. Her unique background in school admissions and teaching, as well as being a parent and private school applicant, gives her invaluable perspective. Her swift feedback opened our eyes to a few holes, and she urged us to consider sharing some information from a different, more effective angle. The happy ending is our daughter will be attending her first choice school. We will never submit another application without Holly looking at it first!
