    • The CEG team has been phenomenal in this whole process. When I approached Ethan in late November, I was really distressed as the application deadlines were around the corner. Despite the late timing, Ethan and the CEG team welcomed me with open arms and trudged along with me every step of the way to complete the process. It's rare to find strangers who truly care about you and want to help you in every way possible, and I think the CEG team really challenges those stereotypes with finesse.

    • Working with College Essay Guy, specifically Nicole was truly fantastic. As someone who considers myself an average writer at best, I had a lot of fear when faced with the 25+ essays I had to write. CEG broke it down into manageable pieces with clear examples to inspire me and, after many rounds of feedback and revisions, I was able to write deeply personal and finely-crafted essays that showcase all the parts of myself that make me who I am.

    • This course has truly changed my life. I now feel that I am prepared to tackle my Questbridge essays, supplemental essays, and any other college essays to ensure that I've tried my best and hardest for my future. After all that this course has provided me with, saying thank you feels inadequate, but still - thank you so much, Ethan. You have truly changed my life and my perspective on writing a personal statement.

    • Starting these courses, I thought I was prepared to put together a good application, but I'm able to recognize now that my application and essays would have been pretty lifeless. Now I have strong, unique essays and a cohesive application that I hope will help to make me a much more competitive applicant at selective schools.
