"King College Counseling provided me with all the resources I needed in order to be confident when I "hit send." One of the impressive aspects of this process at King is that it starts as early as freshman year. Whether it be editing supplements, discussing strategy, or calming nerves, the counselors' doors were always open; a steady support system in a time of uncertainty."
