What do students & educators have to say?
I'm so impressed with all the content you have generated! I regularly share your videos with my students (I volunteer through Matchlighters- a scholarship program for low income students run by Ethan Sawyer). Your content is amazing! It's fun, informative, personal, honest, and easy to understand. I think it's especially great that it comes from a current student.
Waddup Dyllen! Love your videos. <3
One of the most important decisions I made during my college application process was getting Dyllen to help me brainstorm essay ideas and later on edit two rounds of my Common App essay. Her feedback helped me understand where my writing was strong and where I needed to go back to the drawing board so that I could craft the strongest application possible. I cannot thank her enough and recommend her to any and everyone! She has helped me achieve my goal of attending Stanford, and I know she can do the same for you!
I found Dyllen’s YouTube channel and was absolutely in love with how easy and time-wise affordable her essay approach is. Everything is succinct, neat, to the point. After watching all her videos at least twice, I asked her to supervise my essays (grammar check, recommendation on improving contents) and, as a result, I have been accepted at 5 schools from 7 submissions (2 still pending). I can tell for sure that Dyllen is a conscientious, hard-working professional, whose services are worth every penny you pay. The notes she gave were always intelligible, and immediately instructed me ‘on the right pathway’ of my essay's journey. Thank you so much, Dyllen! I was lucky to find you and get your helping hand.
Dyllen has edited many of my essays, and I can confidently say I would recommend her to any of my friends or classmates. Her edits are very comprehensive and she has ensured that all my essays sound precise, personal, and interesting to read. I definitely recommend scheduling a Zoom call with her to explain your ideas for your essays, she has been very helpful in helping me find ways to elevate my essay topics and make them incredibly specific. Her help has reduced my stress greatly in this process and I truly believe her services are worth the money.
Dyllen is simply amazing! Not only did she help me brainstorm extremely creative ideas for both my common app and writing supplements but she also greatly improved my writing style. For anyone looking to get their essays edited, Dyllen is the person to go to!
This course was a lifesaver during college apps. It was incredibly helpful in providing examples of successful essays from students who got into a lot of the schools I applied to. Every example was analyzed line by line which made it easier for me to view my own essay objectively while writing and editing (Dyllen is also a great editor)! This course is helpful no matter what step of the essay writing process you're on and helped relieve a lot of stress for me!
This course made me excited to work on my application! Every lecture you have written out was all super helpful and constructive. It was worth the money. Keep working hard!
As a low-income and international student, I struggled with all the application and essay writing process since day one. I was not used to talking about myself through words and I didn't know if my story was impactful, nor if it was worth sharing. But being a recipient of a scholarship to enroll in this course was extremely helpful. I got so much information through Dyllen's YouTube channel and this course. I learned to brainstorm, choose my topics strategically, construct my ideas, analyze the impact on me and others, and create an essay that portraits my voice. Dyllen was amazing by giving free resources and creating this course. I appreciate all the time invested in this huge project and hopefully, it will continue to grow to help other students as it helped me.
It helped me structure my essay and guided me step by step through the writing process. As an international student, this course especially helped me brainstorm my essay topic.
Honestly, I absolutely LOVED IT!!! It was extremely helpful in helping me organize my college list and most definitely helped me figure out which values and qualities I wanted to highlight in my essays. It was also really colorful and aesthetically pleasing.
Dyllen!!! I just want to say you have been BY FAR the MOST helpful resource I've gotten throughout this college process. Like you, I didn't come from a family with money to pay for a college counselor, and I've spent months and months researching on my own. I was at the tail end of submitting my applications when I discovered your page (working on revising my last essays to uMichigan right now!) and they have helped me really dig into my values to create essays that speak to me. I am 100% recommending your course to my younger sister who has a few years before she starts this process. So much love for you girl <3
I absolutely loved your course! I was so worried about the application process because I had no idea how to write a college essay, and then enrolled in your course and it helped so much and made organizing and brainstorming essays so easy. I loved your words of encouragement and humor throughout the course and it felt really personal.
This was an extremely fun process and definitely was a fantastic form of self reflection and self exploration! The course is fantastic.
Many times this year I have found myself struggling and lost with many aspects of my applications, but watching your videos has helped me craft what I believe to be a great application. I am low income and first-gen. I never had help from my parents, my school counselor, or even friends, but I always found myself learning more and more from you. You deserve recognition and gratitude. So thank you so so much for everything Dyllen. Thank you for helping those who can’t really receive help from others. You have an amazing heart.
Your videos break down the complex college admission process into something more understandable. I particularly appreciate your time management videos which have allowed me to plan out my applications without falling into the dangerous pit of procrastination.
They gave me confidence and motivation to effectively plan out my time toward building a good application.
More than the help, it’s gotten me pumped and excited for the whole application process instead of stressing me out.
Thank you so much for this. I scrapped three personal statements and kept on wondering what went wrong; all of them just felt really off and had a robotic feel to it. I realized that it’s because I jumped to the word-vomit stage without writing down my values + bullets, or establishing a structure. I’m really glad that I started binging your videos because I’m going to scrap my draft once again and start over using your outline.
You literally helped me get into Stanford with your YouTube videos, so if you ever have doubts if you're truly helping people, you definitely are. Watching your videos helped me tremendously on my essays and the admissions process, so much so that I can proudly say that I’m part of the Stanford c/o 2024! Your videos have been an immense help in the application process and ultimately got me into Stanford REA! It's crazy to think that I'm going to Stanford now, but I watched a bunch of your YouTube videos when I was applying and found them SO helpful.
