Testimonials for Ben:

"Ben provided invaluable insight and support throughout the application process. He never let me settle -- when I hit a roadblock, he pushed me to think differently and discover aspects of my stories and myself that I had never contemplated. Without a doubt, Ben's counsel made my essays significantly stronger, and I was thrilled with the final product and results. I interviewed at Stanford and was accepted to HBS and Wharton!"
