"I met with [the career services office] a number of times regarding my journey to graduate school for occupational therapy. [Counselor Kevin Gill] sat with me and prepared me for my interview with Stony Brook (which ultimately got me the spot in the program). I am very grateful for all of the help, support and encouragement."
