“During our coaching sessions I was able to improve my interviewing skills tremendously.   Consequently my confidence during the interviews remained high and enabled me to present my varied background in a strong and focused manner.   Joan also helped me to deal with the stresses of the application process and listened to the worries I had about the interview. Overall, the sessions we had were invaluable.   They gave me the confidence to succeed and were a large part of the reason I was accepted to medical school.”
