Overall excellent. The feedback and revisions were right on. I came in with what I thought was a good personal statement but left with what was really something special in my mind.
I got so many complements on my personal statement during the interview trail. Sahil really helped me develop my voice and bring out my story.
The personal statement comments were extremely helpful. Both Sam and Amy gave me really constructive criticism without shattering my confidence.
