The biggest thanks to Laurie and Matt for literally everything. The meticulously organized college lists, opportunities, summer programs, Common App guides… Your crazy knowledge of each college – not just its programs and acceptance rates, but a genuine understanding of its students, values, and ~vibe~ .  Your constant belief in me was another thing. And your attention and dedication to helping me present and become the best version of myself was something else altogether, and probably the most meaningful thing for me while working with you. Encouraging me to write, sharing with me the opportunities and outlets to do so… it’s also been formative to my personal journey. So, THANK YOU for all the magic you work.”
