Here's what students and parents are saying about working with DreamRoots:

Meg and Michael were a tremendous help with essay coaching. My son was super comfortable with both of them and, as a result, they did a great job helping him tease out his story and develop his ideas.The time and effort made a huge impact on the end result for both the Common App essay and his supplemental essays - they were funny, sincere and thoughtful!
— Mother of Tulane University student
Meg’s assistance in writing my college essays was invaluable. She helped me turn my ideas into something extraordinary. I applied to several schools, and Meg directed me how to tailor my essays to each school. My applications were strengthened dramatically by my essays!”
— Nick, Johns Hopkins University
We were thrilled to find Meg and Michael to work with our son on his college essays. He really appreciated their low stress and creative approach to the process. He is very ‘math-centric’ so having resources to help tease out his experiences was fabulous. The college process in Chicagoland can easily become high stress; with Meg and Michael’s focused yet approachable demeanor, my son was motivated to write revealing essays.”
— Mother of Kelley School of Business, Indiana University student
Working with Michael in a very casual and relaxed environment allowed me to think without pressure. He asked me questions which drew my story out of me and encouraged me to express myself more clearly. As a result, my common app captured who I really am and identified my strengths in an original way.”
— Liam, University of Miami
Meg was very easy to work with and we had a great connection. My essays definitely led to acceptances at the schools I applied to. When it came time to choose a college, I had several options and feel really good about my choice.”
— Jeremy, Xavier Uniersity
Michael helped me brainstorm and develop ideas into creative pieces of writing that I felt great about. He encouraged me to express my voice in a clear and cohesive way. His calm yet attentive demeanor made our sessions enjoyable and constructive, and his knowledge on colleges helped me to craft essays with my audience in mind. Working with Michael was a great experience.”
— Jessica, Vanderbilt University
Working with Meg on her college essays alleviated so much of my daughter’s stress tied to the college application process. Meg helped her develop ideas and was incredibly encouraging as they worked through her essays. Meg was also very insightful into the overall application process, offering advice where needed. Now, it’s my younger daughter’s turn, and we look forward to working again with Meg.”
