I found myself struggling to put together a creative and persuasive personal statement. It was only thanks to Barbara's remarkable skills and her genuine desire to help students that I was able to organize my ideas, accentuate my achievements, and present a creative and articulate statement to the schools. Barbara and the entire team at IvyLeap were extremely helpful and made the process much less stressful.
