Testimonials from Parents and Students
Class of 2023
I was very overwhelmed by the whole process because I wasn’t sure how to start on my essays. Every time I sat down to try and think about the topic, my mind would go to a million different places, and I was not able to form a cohesive thought to start the writing.
Veena helped me discover the topic for the Personal Statement. I was very happy with the Personal Statement I wrote and felt that it did a great job of telling a cohesive narrative while also showing different things about me.
Veena helped me learn a lot more about the universities that I was applying to when she guided me through the supplemental essays. Our weekly meetings and the assignments Veena set for me gave me the right push to keep me on track. Based on my experience, I would recommend Veena to everyone.
Veena took the task of creating a college list that is normally overwhelming and made it very simple and straightforward. She helped me narrow down my choices and ultimately pick the university I am going to attend. I appreciate how helpful and always available she was during the entire process. Veena’s ability to make the entire process of applying to school easy is something I believe everyone could use.
Veena is such an incredible resource during the confusing college admission process. She helped me think about what values are important to me and what I want to convey in my essays. I not only learned a lot about the colleges I was applying to but also how to express myself through writing. I really enjoyed our sessions together.
Veena started working with our daughter in the ninth grade, which allowed her to understand her interests and guide her in the right direction with picking the school and extra-curricular activities. She brainstorms activity ideas with the student and gently encourages them to follow through. Veena is organized, well-planned, knowledgeable, and genuinely cares for the child’s success. Her services are highly recommended.
Veena was a big help and source of knowledge on how to write essays. Conveying my personality in the college essays helped me form a better foundation of who I am—my strengths, weaknesses, etc.—and I’ve already started implementing this into my life. It really is a big help to have someone who knows what they’re talking about guiding me through four years of high school and the college admissions process. I knew I could always go to Veena with any questions.
Veena provided support every step of the way! She was an incredibly helpful college counselor to have by my side. She gave me the right impetus to keep me motivated when, at times, I had no drive to work. Veena showed me ways to improve my writing. I love my Personal Statement and supplemental essays since they are so intricately connected to my life.
Veena helped me to put a timeline to the process, and her experience and feedback allowed me to succeed. Her encouragement helped me to actually show off my accomplishments and write my essays. I enjoyed working with Veena because she pushed me to do better. I would not have been able to navigate this process alone, and having her help me was the best thing for me.
Veena and my son worked directly together. Together they navigated the entire process together, so my husband and I were not the primary drivers. It was nice to be able to rely on Veena as the expert. We would strongly recommend her to anyone. Our son recommends Veena to his family and friends too.
Veena’s help became incredibly valuable as I entered the last two years of high school and started thinking more seriously about college. She found me online diagnostics for both the ACT and the SAT and aided me in deciding which test was more favorable, given my learning style. She curated a college list for me and advised me on determining which universities were the right fit for me. Her constant and encouraging feedback on my essays motivated me to improve throughout the process. I can’t imagine a better person to advise me for the past four years.
Veena first took me on as a client when I was a freshman and guided me throughout this process for four years. As a freshman and sophomore, she inspired me to pursue my curiosities to the fullest extent, finding me summer programs, jobs, and classes tailored to those interests. She also helped me develop time management skills as I took more advanced course loads. I was thankful to have Veena supporting me as I made the transition to high school and started looking into the college process.
