My Squired mentor helped me bring out my passions in a way that stood out to the admissions committees and brought together my whole application. The video session gave me a chance to ask questions and get a deeper understanding of how to improve my essay that went beyond simple editing.

It was a great experience for me! Eesha went through the application process with thorough consideration of the stage I am at right now. Getting advice from Eesha was very helpful. She addressed parts of the application I was unclear about such as the letters of recommendation, and gave in-depth feedback on my application plans and how to relate my interests to the application.
