"Thanks a ton for everything that you’ve done to help me and 5 years of steering me on the right course! I also can’t thank you enough for helping me calm my worried parents and trying to help my family and me understand the often convoluted premed process."
"I wanted to give you an end of cycle update. I had 9 interview invitations, attended 8 interviews, and had 4 acceptances. I really wanted to thank you for supporting me on this journey over the past 7 years. I always encouraged other pre-medical students to see you, because of how honest and direct you were. And your advice helped me have this great cycle! I am very grateful for all the support you gave me."
"Ms. Snydman - thank you so so so SO MUCH for supporting me the past couple years. Our meetings and your advice made the long and difficult application process a little more bearable - it still feels surreal that my longtime dream is finally a reality. I am very grateful to have been your advisee."
