Higher Ed [staff knows] the rules of the game, and were eager to share them… What they did, which I appreciate fully, was get to know who I am. My mentor was especially welcoming from the start… even bringing in UCI students, advisers, and alumni to talk specifically on their areas of experience or expertise. I am forever indebted to Higher Education, for being the map to guide me through the tangled jungle of applications, and the outline to the story that all the colleges would read: the story of me. Overall, Higher Ed Webinar was a phenomenal program for taking all the questions in my head and answering them with expertise and counsel. I would recommend it to anyone who seeks… a personalized, flexible service that draws out the best of students in their applications.. and a caring mentor who offers their hand to anyone seeking reliable guidance in the college admissions process. I appreciate the personal focus of Higher Ed…. Higher Ed was there by my side. Caden Campbell
