"All the schools that I applied to placed great import on the essay submissions of the applicants, and because of this I believe that Susan Wolf was essential to my success in the admissions process. It was great to have her look over my essays because her insistence that I write essays constructed specifically for the admissions staff helped me stay focused, and fully transfer my experiences into an essay format that would help ensure success. She put an amazing amount of effort into helping me, whether it was calling me up constantly to keep me on track, helping me edit in real time on Google Docs, or taking time out of her vacation to meet with me. She is great! " ~ Brian Joseff, Dartmouth Class of 2014
