Looking for graduate schools, let alone college in general, is an overwhelming process that has a tendency of bringing out anxiety in the best of us. The experience I’ve had working with Mara is un-matchable. Since I’ve graduated from college, it’s been impossible to find a supportive advisor while searching for doctoral programs. Not only has Mara helped increase the number of opportunities I could choose from, she has been an outlet of consolation in the times where I’ve needed encouragement the most. Receiving that acceptance letter, email, or memo from a college is just half the battle. Mara takes the extra step to find out what makes someone unique in the effort of discovering a school that’s harmonious to an individuals needs (including academically, socially, financially). I can’t even count the number of times I’ve felt the waves of fear envelop within myself. During these moments, Mara used her skills as a counselor to bring my attention back to reality. I consider Mara to be not just a great college advisor or excellent counselor, but a system of support. The buttress Mara bestowed on me is something I’ve only experienced from the care of an intimate friend. For those of you that have finished your undergraduate studies and are looking to take the next step towards a graduate degree, I highly encourage working with Mara. I can’t even describe how stressful the process of applying to graduate school is, let alone a doctoral program. With that said, Mara has made my dreams come true while also being there as a shoulder to lean on during the times I needed it the most. Thank you, Mara. And good luck to those of you pursuing further education.
