Notification of changes
I thought that Breakaway was a big help for my college search and application process. It gave me set deadlines and guidance in terms of what I should be doing in order to submit my best applications possible. I feel that this guidance was a great help and it definitely helped to ease my stress throughout the application process.Matthew C., Duke University
