WHAT WE DID
Janet wasn’t happy at Connecticut College and wanted a school that had more depth in the English department and a varied social scene.
We helped Janet drill down and become more specific on what area of English was of interest, then sharpen that. She identified South African poetry as her passion and had background to support that theme.
We gave her clear ways to take action in her Personalized Transfer Report and supported her in our conference call in specific ways to take action.
She understood how to approach her professors at Connecticut College and how to best flourish in her time there
Testing was an issue so she focused with our tutors and pushed up her SAT scores and added some Subject Tests.
She crafted essays that showed her target school, Brown, what it had that she wasn’t finding at her current college, specific professors, etc.
Though transferring to any Ivy is extremely difficult, Janet did get into Brown and happily flourished as an English scholar there.
