WHAT STUDENTS & PARENTS SAY

HS Senior,
Matchlighters Scholar

 

I am really excited to tell you I matched with MIT through the QB NCM. It was my top school, and I’m just in shock with the news. I’ve appreciated your guidance and help so much, and I wouldn’t have been able to get this achievement without your help.

I just wanted to say thank you very much for making my first semester at UT far less confusing than I thought it would be. Because of you, I am preparing to become a peer mentor for Fall 2020.

I appreciated the manner in which you made it clear what was needed to accomplish my academic goal of attending (and graduating from) University of Washington. From GPA to timeline to program requirements, you guided me to focus on what UW expected.

Bioengineering MS to PhD

 

Peggy was immensely helpful in navigating the switch from the Masters program into the PhD program for Bioengineering at UW. She also helped me to navigate a complex and difficult relationship with my advisor. She was able to understand both my and my advisors points of view and helped me to advocate for myself while appreciating the context.
