Description

Join Samara for another installment of our Live Review sessions!

During this event, Samara will choose writings submitted ahead of time to review LIVE on air. Any type of writing is welcome in this review — college and scholarship essays, CVs, papers for class, articles for your school’s newspaper, or even personal projects of your own. For each piece, Samara will walk through what you’ve written, paying particular attention to any special review requests, and offer suggestions for improvement.

You can submit your writing for review to this form!

Using her academic foundation in communication and Fortune 100 PR and brand management experience, Samara collaborates with her clients to craft narratives that best represent themselves to admissions committees. The wit, candor, and strategy Samara brings to collaborating with clients has been highly effective. Her clients have gained admission to Columbia, The University of Pennsylvania, Cornell, UC Berkley, NYU, and Boston University, among others. She looks forward to adding your student’s successful admission to this impressive list!
