What our clients say:

"After receiving our review, I realized just how much I didn’t know about the college application process. I’m forever grateful to ApplyHereFirst for pointing out some critical areas of needed improvement that I had not even been aware of. The feedback was so helpful for my daughter and really opened our eyes as to what colleges are looking for. Now she has the best chance possible of getting into her Dream School. Thank you!"

"Thank you- this is all very valuable feedback. I had reviewed Dan's application and didn't pick up on any of these problems. He will definitely go back and correct these errors. We are very appreciative. It was very helpful to have a fresh set of eyes review his application and give us feedback from the point of view of an admissions officer. We feel much more confident now going forward in this process. Thank you!"

Rachel V.
"Before, I was unsure about how good my application was. My guidance counselor wasn't that helpful because she just didn't have time. The feedback for how to fix each section was really helpful and a lot more specific than I expected. It's also super helpful to know that I've filled out my application properly. Fixing the whole essay was really important too. I feel more confident in applying now because I know exactly what I need to do."
