Parent & Student Reviews

Xingzhi Hu

Moon prep is very helpful for colleage application, especially in BS/MD program. We are using Moon Prep as my son's consultant for his application for his dream schools. The assay editor/mentor discusses with my son and helps to polish his application for the summer programs. Highly recommend to all.

Kaitlin Ross

I am extremely satisfied with Moon Prep’s services! As someone who was accepted to one of the top 20 BS/MD programs in the country, I can fully say I was equipped with confidence and skills for essay and interview preparation!

Abhinav Palle

Moon Prep was a great help in the entirety of my college application process! From helping with finding summer research opportunities, revising essays, creating school lists, and more, Moon Prep has provided world class college advising assistance at every step of the way. I am so happy to say that I was accepted to Drexel BA/BS+MD, Vanderbilt, NYU, Boston U, UMichigan, Wake Forest, and many more top schools. I greatly recommend Moon Prep to any student that is aiming for top schools and competitive programs.

Vidhya Manoj

We have just begun our journey for my son with MoonPrep. So far it has been a very good experience for us with the staff and mentors being very knowledgeable, helpful and always available when we need them. Looking forward to a successful partnership in getting my son into the college of his dreams.

Vedavathi Vikram

We have Alix as a guide for our daughter. She is involved every step of the way. Understood our daughter and her ambitions. Guided her during course slection. Helped her during her ups and lows emotionally. During this summer, she made an extra effort to help her, by accommodating the time difference with meetings. When it came to College applications, she is the best. She shared the commonapp template well in advance. She made sure my daughter has refined her activities to 150 characters. She lined up her honors and rewards section. Helped build a well-formatted and stellar resume. She has become an English teacher guiding her in her essay selection by asking pointed questions to make her think about what is best for her. She made corrections using online collaboration tools. During interview preparations, she has given so many tips and suggestions that are useful throughout my daughter's career. My daughter has successfully interviewed with her guidance. I am sure we will reach out to her even during my daughter's college years for her higher studies. We are delighted to be under Alix's guidance. A BIG THANKS TO ALIX. -VV

Pathman Selvarajah

Alix from Moon Prep was an amazing advisor. She was a pleasure to work with. She kept my son motivated and on the ball throughout the whole process. Alix was always available to answer any questions. I would recommend Alix without any reservations to a student who is preparing for college entrance.

Shiri Hus

We have had the pleasure of working with Alix, at Moon Prep, on my sons college application process. It has been an amazing experience! Alix guided him every step of the way and was always caring, supportive, and offered a wealth of knowledge concerning BS/MD programs. She is meticulous, creative, and we could always depend on her prompt feedback. She left no stone unturned and was available to guide and review every part of the application process. Alix is a wonderful college counselor, but she is also an excellent interview preparation coach who provided important guidance and feedback to help my son confidently interview at top-tier programs. Additionally, using collaborative online writing tools, she was able to edit and utilize her creative writing talents to provide ideas for my son to optimize his writing, find his voice, and truly tell his story - eventually solidifying an acceptance to his dream school! At a time that’s already stressful for parents and students alike, It was so comforting to know that Alix was in my son’s corner. The college application processes is intricate and lengthy, but Alix’s encouragement and strong work ethic streamlined the process even when it was overwhelming. I whole-heartedly recommend Alix without any reservations to a student who is preparing for the college entrance journey! We will miss working with her - and that says ALOT!

Twisha Patel

Moon Prep has been so helpful to me during the college app process. They're always available to answer questions or to give feedback and email back almost immediately. The whole team is super knowledgeable about every aspect of the college application process, and they go above and beyond to help their students. Kristen and Lindsey were both so supportive, encouraging, and knowledgeable. I couldn't have done it without them!

Deb N

We hired Moon Prep last year and Alix was an amazing college counselor. She is very knowledgeable, kind, and works hard to make the process manageable... and to top it all off my daughter get into her dream school!! I highly recommend Alix and Moon Prep!

Godwin Inyang

My daughter worked with Nicole on applying to BS/MD programs. We could not have done it without her. She is a master at helping students write the essays. My daughter struggled so much with finding a topic and the whole writing process. My daughter kept waiting till last minute and that is why I reached out to Moon Prep. As a parent, I struggled to help her. It was causing family problems. My only wish was that I reached out sooner!

Ronald Kevin

My daughter worked with Michaela from Moon Prep on her college applications. She had a top ACT score and has always been strong in science and math (STEM), but was really struggling with writing all the essays. She must have rewritten the personal statement over five times. Michaela helped keep her on track. She helped her with brainstorming different topics and proofread everything. It made all our lives so much easier.

Mary J

Michaela is great with scholarships. She knows the process well. The first application I completed with her I received a scholarship. She helped me find the scholarships and complete all the essays. It was definitely worth it.

Trevor Donald

WOW! Alix was the most AMAZING college counselor! She worked with my child and assisted with every step of the college process! Alix is so incredibly knowledgeable about the college process from start to finish! She assisted crafting the college list, deadlines, essays, supplements and even helped press the submit button when we were ready! Her follow up, positive energy and hard work is unfathomable and so appreciated. The process is daunting, but she made it "almost" fun! Thank you Alix!

Anastasiia Robert

I started working with Michaela the summer before senior year. I applied early to Case Western as soon as the application opened. I found out I was accepted in September! It was a relief to be done with applications so early in the cycle. This way I could concentrate on senior year and my AP classes. All my friends are still working on their apps. Michaela was great. I recommend her.

Florence Ekpang

Alix helped me with my bs/md applications. She was easy to work with and was always sending me reminders. She kept me on track during this busy time and ensured nothing important was overlooked. I am so glad my parents hired her. It was great to have someone to help me and to be able to ask questions to.

Clara A

I worked with Lindsey on my medical school applications. I applied to over 30 schools. She proofread all my personal statements and secondaries. She also helped me prep for my MMI interview. The MMI interview prep was especially helpful since I was unfamiliar with this interview format and practicing with Lindsey really put me at ease the day of the interview. I am now in medical school, yay! I am so thankful for the help I received.

Ankitha Gurram

I am so thankful for Kristen and Lindsey! They have helped me so much on my college applications. They have made the process a lot easier and helped me space out my work, so that I wouldn't have to cram everything before the deadlines. Lindsey is amazing at editing and proof reading essays and it is sometimes difficult to even think of a topic, but Lindsey makes the process a whole lot easier. She made sure I completed my essays ahead of time and made sure they were perfect. Kristen worked with me from junior year and she showed me what steps I can take to make my application even better. She made sure I had everything I needed to send in to colleges. They both make time for you and will always give honest and good feedback. I am so glad I chose Moon prep to help me through this journey. I highly recommend Moon prep to anyone looking for assistance on their college applications. You will not be disappointed! :)

Francesca Jake

I had a very positive experience with everyone at Moon Prep. They are very responsive and get back to clients right away, even nights and weekends. I appreciate that. You can tell they really care about the customer experience.

Francis Abeng

Nicole is wonderful to work with. She has a calm demeanor and is very patient with students. Also, very knowledgeable and gave solid advice. I would highly recommend her helping your child apply to college.

Karthikha S

Kristen, Lindsey, and Kevin were extremely helpful in helping me throughout my BS/MD application process. Kristen in helping choose the schools that would best fit my profile and needs, Kevin in essay planning and editing, and Lindsey in interview prep. All of them helped me highlight the strengths of my application, while making up for my weaknesses. They made an already difficult process much easier and smoother. I'd highly recommend them to anyone who is interested in a direct medical pathway!

Marc Gelernter

For anybody looking for guidance for the medical school admission process, I highly recommend using Moon Prep. After being wait listed last year, I was not sure where to get guidance from and how to change my personal statement, secondary essays, and interview approach for this cycle. Lindsey and everybody else at Moon Prep were extremely organized and offered great insight on the process of admissions for medical schools. Moon Prep gave me specific tips that helped me to get multiple interviews and acceptance to my top medical school choice. I was skeptical at first, but I could not be more pleased with my overall experience with Moon Prep. The feedback I got from both my essays and mock interviews was extremely useful and definitely helped to make me a better applicant overall.

Julia Holmgren

Alix Markoff is amazing; she's so enthusiastic about her work and dedicated to her students. I felt very prepared for my MMI interviews and ultimately got into my top BA/MD and BS/MD programs! I'll miss working with Alix!

Hongran Cha

Moon Prep provides very systematical approaches and assistance for my daughter's college application. Parents, you don't have to deal with for their applications. For your precious' sake, what you need to do is just to make your kid work with her/his counselor of Moon Prep independently in your trust and support. Moon Prep fully supported and assisted my daughter from the beginning to the end. Thank you, Alix and Lindsey. Without you, I don't think I could go through by myself.

E O

My son worked with Alix from Moon Prep on his college applications. During the long process (more than 1 year), there were times when he was lost and didn't know what to do. But Alix always stayed on top and guided him to the right direction. Eventually he got into his dream school!! I am so glad that my son worked with Alix and Moon Prep though the long journey. Thank you!

Frankie Velez

Alix has been an amazing support system during the college app process. Alix was always available to answer questions or to give feedback and would email back immediately. Alix was very supportive and knowledgeable. We couldn't have done it without Moon Prep!

Pranav P

My experience working with Kristen Moon and Joshua Arnold at Moon Prep was extremely helpful. The tips and guidance I have received from Moon Prep was one of a kind. I highly recommend Moon Prep to anyone starting the college admissions process.

Kamran Aslani

If it was not for Lindsey, my son would not have been admitted to the combined BS/MD program that he is now admitted and plan to attend in Fall 2021. Kids listen to others better than they do to their own parents. Lindsey definitely knew who to talk to my son and keep him interested to work on the things he was supposed to from applying for admission all the way to the interview. She kept him upbeat in the process. There were times I felt he was going to give up. That was when I would email Lindsey about it and she would talk to him and he would be back on track. Above all, I chose schools that did not work out at the end. The one he was eventually admitted to was the one Lindsey suggested. Thank you Lindsey. That sure was a life changing event for my son.

Rajit Jain

Extremely helpful! Kristen Moon and Lindsey Conger assisted me with what could have been a very stressful high school experience. They helped me find summer programs and internships that stand out to colleges and guided me through the intimidating applications. They were always punctual and reliable when I needed help with editing an essay or reviewing an application. Having them by my side allowed me to develop a well-rounded profile for colleges. Due to their support, I feel much more confident as I look ahead to applying for college!

Catarina Cutter

Moon prep is a great group! I worked with Kristen back when I was applying to colleges, and then Lindsey assisted me with the medical school application process. I was highly successful in both, and I am super grateful for everyone here. I mostly used them for planning (i.e. understanding what steps were involved in the process) and having another set of eyes on my essays.

Brandon Qiao

Moon Prep has helped my college admissions process immensely. With Lindsey and Andrea's help, it eased the application process and made me more comfortable and confident as I wrote my essays and filled in forms. Whether it was struggling with approaching an essay prompt or just a quick question I had about my application, they would respond swiftly and provide me with clarity when I struggled. With their help, I have successfully got into my ED school. Moon Prep has helped me shine as an applicant and has brought me one step closer in my journey to become a doctor!

Tiffani Szeto

I've been working with Moon Prep over the last 7 months, and my advisors, Loren and Lindsey, have helped me tailor my application to perfection! I recently received a super early acceptance letter to medical school, and I even got placed in an exclusive 30 student program within the school! Out of over 15,000 applications, Moon Prep advisors were able to help me shine and get me one step closer towards my goal of becoming a physician!

Sindhu Raghava

I’m so thankful to Moon Prep for helping me with the college admissions process! Kristen gave me a lot of guidance with interview prep and did mock interviews with me, which gave me confidence when interviewing for colleges. Lindsey was amazing and helped me brainstorm and revise all my college application essays. I highly recommend Moon Prep; they made the college admissions process so much less stressful and helped me get into great schools!

Iniya Soundararajan

Moon Prep is an outstanding company. If it wasn't for Lindsey I wouldn't have been accepted into a BS/MD program and I am so thankful for all she has done to help me. She helped me so much during my interview prep with hours of mock interviews and throughout the entire college application process she not only helped me with my essays but also helped to make the difficult process 100 times easier. There was one specific instance where I had a written supplement due within the hour and I had no idea about it and Lindsey went out of her way to jump in all of a sudden and help me the entire hour, just to ensure I was not only able to submit the supplement on time, but also that it was the best it could be. This moment stood out to me as it showed me how much she cares for her students. To anyone that is interested in pursuing medicine in college, I highly recommend Moon Prep as they will help you accomplish all your goals!

Karthikha Sri Indran

Kristen, Lindsey, and Kevin were extremely helpful in helping me throughout my BS/MD application process. Kristen in helping choose the schools that would best fit my profile and needs, Kevin in essay planning and editing, and Lindsey in interview prep. All of them helped me highlight the strengths of my application, while making up for my weaknesses. They made an already difficult process much easier and smoother. I'd highly recommend them to anyone who is interested in a direct medical pathway!

Christina Joseph

Moon Prep is the absolute best for students looking to maximize their acceptance to their dream college. They have helped me apply, write my essays, create my college list and resume and everything in between. All the staff are super helpful and always available 24/7 no matter the hour. My experience with Lindsey Conger had been nothing short of excellent, and effective. She had helped me brainstorm and edit all my essays for such a reasonable price and for limitless schools. There is nothing they can’t do. Especially people for ivies and bs/md programs and other competitive programs, they are the only one you should be calling! I am so grateful and thankful for my experience and time with them. I literally would not be where I am today with all my success and acceptances to competitive school and programs. Endless Thank you’s and gratitude from me to Lindsey Conger and the whole moonprep team!

David Grossnickle

We are so happy to have discovered Moon Prep. Our daughter has worked with Lindsay Conger beginning with the Common Application essay, through the admissions, honors college, and scholarship process. Lindsay is an expert at sharing ideas and helping our daughter to dig deeper regarding additional details to add to essays. Lindsay always provides a quick turnaround with proofreading our daughter’s essays and provides prompts for additional insight. We cannot say enough about how supportive Lindsay is during the entire process. We are also impressed with all of the webinars and other resources provided by Moon Prep.

Mehul Jain

Working with Kristen and Lindsey is great! They are both very knowledgeable about the entire undergraduate admissions process and make the tasks much easier. Lindsey is amazing at working with you on essays. She walks you through the prompt, edits, and does final proofs on all the essays! Even though both of these counselors work with many students, they always find time in their schedule to meet with you and discus any questions you may have. Highly recommend this service for anyone looking for a guiding hand through the daunting admissions process!

Rohith Tudi

MoonPrep really helped me get into the BS/MD programs I was targeting. Michaela was great at proofreading all of my essays and keeping me on track, and Kristen had really great tips for the interview process. Would highly recommend to everyone.

Sidney Nguyen

Michaela was my counsellor. I can’t thank her enough for her guidance, , expertise and encouragement. I always makes herself so available to help me. She is great with helping me brainstorming ideas. I cannot think of a better person to help me navigate through this process.

John

Andrea is an exceedingly helpful advisor and constantly is there to support any needs that a student may present with her knowledgeable character. Additionally, she executes every step towards her students’ success with full personal engagement and I could not ask for a better person to help me through the rather confusing college process.

I had the best experience with Moon Prep!!! I specifically worked with Loren. With her exceptional guidance on my medical school applications, I have successfully gained acceptance! Loren really helped me to make a primary application that was representative of who I am as a person. Also, Loren was always available to help edit any of my essays that I did not feel confident about. Not only was she available for editing, but her editing skills were phenomenal. She also provided great advice regarding which direction to take an essay if I felt unsure on how to answer a prompt. On top of all of that, Loren really kept me positive throughout the entire process. I highly recommend that anyone applying to medical school should consider using Moon Prep as their support!

Daniel

My son has worked with Kevin from MoonPrep, Kevin is knowledgeable and knows very well how to communicate with students. We are lucky to has Kevin as college counselor.

Ms Abigail was really great in helping me put my ideas onto paper and creating questions that made me look more deeply into why I thought a certain way or about specific topics, allowing me to write essays that really represented me
