I felt lost and ignorant of the application process, and I heard about Passport through a family friend who is a college counselor. [The most valuable part of working with Passport was the] personal statement help and having a trustworthy source of information for the questions I had.
Woof! The admission process is long! It will probably be a full year from when I started the applications to when I know where I will be going/living for the next four years. I wrote many many drafts of my personal statement and was confused on where to go with it exactly. After many drafts and talking to people, I felt unsure of all the help I was getting and went to passport. Through passport I dramatically reformatted my essay and made it much much better. The support I got through passport was wonderful because they really know what they are doing and talking about. The primary was long and tedious and the many secondaries were very annoying. After secondaries I felt great! I loved interviewing and traveling. The little intro to interviewing was helpful (especially to know what I was getting into before my first interview). And I am still getting help from passport - even now while I have questions about acceptances and waitlists. Such great help!
I applied to 28 schools, got I think 26 secondaries, 10 interviews (went to 9 because a school screw up), 2 acceptances (NYMC and Drexel), 5 waitlists (UCSD, NYU, SUNY Downstate, Albert Einstein, Temple), still waiting on one (Davis).
Rob was fantastic! So nice! and so helpful! Quick to respond to my questions, and always giving encouragement.
