2016-17 Undergraduate & MBA applicant successes!
The Red Pen team gave tremendous time and effort to my applications something I feel really distinguishes them from others. Stanford would not have been possible without their guidance! I started this journey with no idea about the things I needed to do for applying abroad. With The Red Pen’s help I was able to prepare a comprehensive timeline of activities and select colleges that would be a great fit for me, in the US and Singapore. Collaborating remotely with the team was never an issue.
When it came to writing the college essays, the team helped me brainstorm ideas and reviewed my drafts to ensure that I was communicating my experiences effectively. I found their team-based approach very useful, because I had the benefit of feedback from multiple consultants. I participated in mock interviews in preparation for meeting alumni from different universities. By the end, I was able to speak more confidently and articulate my thoughts in a more structured and purposeful manner.
