Dr. Legatt has been an amazing help throughout the difficult college process. Her expertise and careful review made my application resonate perfectly with the school that I am applying to. Her quick response and supportive attitude has made everything about this experience smooth and gratifying. I urge anyone striving to make their application outstanding to take full advantage of Dr. Legatt’s knowledge and judgement. Thank you Dr. Legatt!
Dr. Legatt has helped us formulate college application strategy, writing an effective resume and stand out college essay, as well as building relationships with admission officers. The “accelerator” has effectively guided us on how to build a strong profile to stand out for admission to elite schools. With Dr. Legatt’s help and guidance, we have been able to focus on the right things through each stage of the college application process armed with the critical information.
With SAT scores around the 25th percentile of admitted students for Penn, I thought Wharton was a reach. However, with the help of Dr. Aviva I was able to refine my personal statement, supplement essay, and resume. I am now a proud member of the Wharton Undergraduate Class of 2021! Dr. Aviva was extremely responsive, insightful, and gracious through this process. She guided me in putting my best foot forward in my application and I could not be happier with my result. Thank you so much Dr. Aviva, you’re the best!
