I was really impressed with how well my appeal letter came out after I showed it to you and you discussed how it should be streamlined and more focused. I don't know how well my chances are, but I wish I had had you earlier to help with my personal statements.
Just two emails from Lindy explained more to me about what I needed to do than I got in one year.
You helped demystify the process of transferring to a UC from community college, and helped my son establish a game plan and significantly build his confidence after a very rough patch in high school. I particularly appreciate how much you went out of your way to make sure my son knew he deserved to be at a UC.
This book was recommended to me by a another student and I seriously can't say enough good things about it. I was so confused about the process of transferring, even after talking to my advisor. This just lays it all out in a way that is totally understandable. I particularly like the question and answers at the end, where she gives real life examples and solutions.
You always provide really helpful information! I've done some mistakes in my UC application, and your responses gave me proper ways to handle them. Thanks! Thanks! Thanks!
We got a copy of this book after a frustrating college admissions meeting. I am impressed (and relieved), not only with how well it is laid out, but also by the sheer scope of material covered. There are so many pieces to the puzzle that need to be aligned exactly right, which is daunting. But the good news is if you follow the book correctly, your kid really stands an excellent shot at getting into a UC. I swear - almost any 10 random pages are worth the price.
Ms. King does a phenomenal job summing up the TRANSFER process. There are a lot of books on getting into colleges but not many as complete as this one, in discussing the TRANSFER process. The book is an easy read, reference and a great help to families looking at doing taking steps to get into University of California School. Thank you so much for writing this!
This is my first review on amazon, and this review is because of Lindy. She is perfect and best consultant I have ever seen in my life. Why? She knows what she is writing about. It's her job and she is master on it. She knows all the exceptions about transferring. I recommended her book to my friends, and I think this book is a gift.
This book gave me exactly the answers I needed, as well as answers to questions I hadn't even thought of. She explained the transfer process in ways that my college advisors still can't do after going to many appointments with them. I recommend purchasing this book because it will help with the application, writing the personal statement, and deciding which UC ultimately feels right for you.
I cannot thank Ms King enough for helping me hone my college essay. Her detailed approach to brainstorming ideas led me to a great topic that I think was one of a kind and fun to write. She got me thinking of essays in a new light. By the way, I got into several UCs!!
