David Hawkins deftly developed my writing style over 3 months to help me create admission essays of a standard that I had no idea I could produce.

When we first met, my essays were unfocused and often unengaging. His productive feedback and detailed knowledge of the inner workings of the admissions process helped tailor my writing to create essays that helped me gain admissions into Stanford University.

The work that he did, not only helped me create application essays that got me into Stanford but also strengthened my writing skills in ways that have been invaluable at university.

We were recommended by our school to approach David for detailed advice and support as we evaluated European alternatives to traditional UK university options.

He has made the process so easy and provided the reassurance to give my daughter and I the confidence to move forward with an option in Holland.

David surveyed the options for us in several countries to study law in English. We narrowed the search down and he then provided more detailed considerations about the applications and the process for individual institutions. As we made individual applications he provided invaluable guidance as to how to reshape elements of the application to fit the local model.

We ended up applying to 3 law schools in Holland, have accepted one, and had offers from the other two. There are some really exciting and cost effective courses outside the UK that need a bit of extra work to understand, but with David’s help that was easy.  

University is a big step and it has to be worth the investment of looking at all the options. Thank you David we are delighted with the outcome and appreciative of your flexibility of being available in evenings and weekends.

If you’re reading this, it’s probably because applying to college is particularly daunting and/or you’re looking for help. 

My personal situation was that my school offered limited help for applying to the US for college and therefore was in a really difficult situation whereby I wanted to go but didn’t know how.

Not only this but the offering for UK unis wasn’t perfect either. However, only until I found the contact of David. We had a conversation on the phone that was meant to be short but ended up being very extensive and I suddenly came to learn his fountain of expertise was enormous.

The thing that struck me most was that he was very clearly not out to just sell a product, but gave me a very sharp reality check about the realities of applying and was sure to check with me that it was the right thing for ME.

All in all, I would recommend David if you want help or simply to ease your process of getting into your dream college through his great help.
