Julian is a diligent student and a community-oriented person. Throughout his high school career, he’d collected many awards, honors, and participated in various high-impact activities in his community. Julian couldn’t shake the feeling that he was “bragging” in his application with every line he wrote. He sought out Quad Education to help him set the right tone and learn how to embrace talking about himself.
We began by letting Julian know that many students struggle between humility and “bragging” in their college applications. Digging deeper, Julian realized that talking about himself made him uncomfortable. We helped Julian build his confidence and own his achievements through weekly calls and continued correspondence.
As Julian’s confidence grew, his writing skills and level of introspection flourished to produce meaningful, sincere application documents. We ensured every application document was edited not only for tone, but sentence structure, word usage, punctuation/grammar, concision, and more.
Julian was accepted to his dream school Princeton University through single-choice early action.
