One of the reasons I loved B2A's Gateway program was that it offered me a counselor who worked with me one-on-one, learned my personality, and guided (though never forced) me through the application process. My counselor knew me well enough to tell me that certain phrases in my essays "weren't Jason," or that I needed to add a certain "Jason touch" to a paragraph or two.
