It was a very enjoyable and helpful process as my consultant was always there to answer any queries I had regarding the entire process as well as work well with me to set up a schedule so that I would remain on task throughout the duration and get practice to improve myself throughout. The advise and feedback provided was very detailed and played a huge part in allowing me to learn from my mistakes and improve to end up acing the admission process.”

I came across Prep Zone by crawling through the internet. Although I only started using them a little later in the cycle, Nirali was constantly in contact with my family, really showing Prep Zone's enthusiastic and determined approach. The consultants were fantastic in helping me with my US essays; the feedback was always on time and very detailed. Furthermore, my mock interview practice with the consultants was invaluable for my UK medical interviews. Overall, I had a great experience with Prep Zone's professionalism and would highly recommend any applicants world wide to use their services.”

“My experience with Prep Zone was very helpful in keeping me on track in the college admissions process. From start to finish, my consultant had an enthusiastic and engaging approach to answering my queries, providing me with crucial resources and improving my essays. Not only did my consultant provide detailed feedback on my personal statement but also helped me hone my interview skills by practising academic style questions with me which prepared me well for my UK engineering interviews.”

“I felt that my consultant really helped with navigated me throughout my application process. This included brainstorming ideas on what to write my essays and supplements on and how to format my application to make it better. I think that my consultants did help me land my admission offer, not only through editing my application and helping my essays be ten times better than what I originally had, but also by doing practice interviews and giving me extremely helpful feedback. Overall, working with my consultants taught me how to write better essays, talk more confidently and clearly and also made me learn more about myself from writing my Common App and Personal Statement!”

K. Z.

“I found the consultants incredibly helpful throughout the whole college process from helping with essay writing to college selection to interview practice to editing my cover letters for internship applications, just to name a few. I got into my top choice college - all thanks to Simonas and everyone else in the team - truly grateful.”

A. D.

“Both Tiffany and Simonas were very helpful with my med applications by guiding me towards what Universities expect from my application but also what makes me stand out as a candidate. During an interview preparation, Tiffany helped me develop my answers in a strategic way that would allow an examiner to understand me better as a candidate and a person. I truly believe that I landed my St George's offer because I did a mock with Tiffany a few days prior to the interview. Taking classes with Prep-zone Academy boosted my confidence and gave me realistic insight into what to expect. Thank you very much for your help!”

“I met with Simonas in my final year of high school initially to decide on what schools to apply to as well as to have someone look over my essays. Not only did Simonas provide the guidance to make navigating the application process simple, but he was able to encourage me to stay on top of things along the way. Having a counsellor also gave me a place to ask questions, and he answered all of them more than adequately. During the essay writing process I had lost motivation and wasn’t meeting my deadlines with Simonas. He repeatedly made contact via email with more information to encourage me to submit, even if my drafts were subpar. The feedback on those essays allowed me to fine tune them to the level needed and resulted in my acceptance to Cornell.”

M. L.

“I feel that the support given to me not only when considering which universities to apply to but also the help with my Personal Statement was valuable, especially since I was applying for a joint degree which required very a very specific and nuanced statement.”

K. K.

“I signed up to get an insight into the medical admissions for Singapore universities as I was feeling quite lost as to what was expected from students. Tiffany helped me by being very patient in answering all my questions and giving me very helpful tips along the way. She gave me an insight into what I could expect through mock interviews and also gave me valuable tips on how I could improve my portfolio and personal statement. She also gave me confidence by encouraging me and motivating me when I had doubts. Overall, it was a very pleasant experience working with her.”
