When I first walked into Joan’s office the spring going into Junior year, I knew where I wanted to go but had absolutely no idea how to get there. One of the first questions she asked me was what classes I had signed up for senior year. When I told her, she simply shook her head and said “No.” It was at that moment that I knew Joan was the right choice to help me get where I needed to go. That tough love never died down as she continued to push and guide me through the entire process. As someone who was interested in a very specialized circuit of college admissions—filmmaking—Academic Access did a great job of personalizing a strategy just for me. After I got my acceptance letter from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, I knew who I owed it to. Thanks Joan for getting me to where I need to be!
