To Writing Specialist Ethan:

“You’re definitely one of the first people that I have to thank for making my dream become reality. I really enjoyed working with you, exchanging ideas, and bettering drafts slowly and slowly. I truly appreciate all the thought you have put in for every single draft we exchanged. I can not possibly imagine what my application season would be like without you. With your help, college apps really wasn’t as scary as I thought. ”
