Writing a solid diversity and personal statement do not begin to measure the aid Ann provided during my application cycle. And while the multiple, multiple revisions were critical to my application experience, Ann’s work only began there.
While she was always positive and caring, her most valuable trait was her honesty especially in her comments in my writing and applications. Responding to all my questions at definitely some unreasonable hours of the day (for her!) while simultaneously reviewing my essays and applications until they were what she deemed perfect. But, that is what was so necessary because she knew what was crucial to highlight in an application.
Lastly, the guidance didn’t stop once my applications were turned in. She acted with kindness and care, even advising in the actual selection, based on me, individually. Suggesting some schools over others because she could see me there. That is the type of individual attention Ann gave.
