What clients are saying about Maria.

“It’s rare to come across standout talent like Maria: she not only knows what each top school is looking for, but she deeply cares about her clients and is invested in their success. There were late nights, deadlines that most would be say would be “impossible” but together we made it work. I know I got into Harvard (and Ross) because of the support and guidance of Maria. A wonderful human being.”
