What Meridith’s clients have to say about her

I couldn’t recommend Meridith any more highly than I do. For anyone looking to apply—working with Meridith will position you to stand out from other applicants in ways you didn’t know were possible.
Meridith was great in helping me choose a strategy that would allow me to get into my top choice for business school. She kept me on track with weekly feedback on my writing until we got to the end result. I highly recommend Meridith to anyone who needs help with business school applications.
