What People Say
With Vaishnavi’s help, not only did I get my essays complete, but I also felt that my writing improved. One of the things I really enjoyed when working with Vaishnavi was that she looked at the early action deadlines and set me up with a plan that would ensure that I get the applications turned in well before the deadline. All in all, VR College Solutions is the go-to place when looking for help on the college application journey or even if you are looking for where to start.
