Testimonials

Thank you for helping me with my essays! I really appreciate all of your help. Just wanted to let you know that so far I have gotten acceptance letters from Baylor, Auburn, Samford, OU, and Texas A&M. Thank you!

K. Patch, Texas Applicant

I met Stan a few years back when I was applying to business school. Stan helped review my MBA application, and gave me some pointers on how to improve both the content and the flow of my essays. Moreover, he provided valuable insight on what admissions officers may be looking for in a candidate... further helping me to determine what I should focus on in my writing.

Stan's warm and friendly personality, along with his capable coaching, made me feel confident that I was submitting the best application that I could put together.

And, by the way, I was admitted and matriculated to the Anderson School at UCLA, a top ranked MBA program.

Mr. Lemons' help enabled me to navigate my way through the labyrinth of the college admissions process. His book provided me with the facts and information necessary to understand what was going on. His personal guidance helped me organize my thoughts and goals to write effective essays, structure my time to meet deadlines, and find the colleges that were my best options. He also gave me advice on interviewing. Overall, he has been supportive and encouraging throughout my college search process.
