Sandy is focused, blunt, and up front. I worked with him for first rounds apps. After my “I’ll do anything to get into Stanford” speech . . . we worked on the many drafts of my essay. It was not a pretty sight, pages of writing I thought were outstanding were deleted, topics reworked, everything was moved around. I ended up with these essays that were amazing. And those essays got me into Stanford, Wharton, and Harvard.
