We were impressed with how well Gaby understood our daughter and family and was able to help us articulate ourselves in an eloquent yet authentic way...We are thrilled to have received a spot in our top school and we know we would not have gotten it without Gaby.

Application essays are a critical part of a family’s admissions file. They help provide the admissions committee with a clear sense of how a family’s values align with a school’s mission and convey to a school why a student and family would be a good fit for the school. With our experience having read thousands of admissions files and knowing what makes a parent statement and student application stand out, we help both parents and students write impactful statements that clearly convey their core values and the student’s strengths.
