'Mrs Banning primarily supported the essay part of the application which I felt lacked originality. Our discussions nurtured diversity of thought which led to more meaningful content and helped me appreciate the strength that can be found in culture and ambition.
In addition, I also received support from her team members in achieving better scores on my SATs. The tutoring was outstanding and greatly increased my success on the test.'
