Feedback We've Received

“When I came to DLA for help with my personal statement, the application period had already opened, and I knew I was behind. I signed up for the development service and cannot be happier with the results. I just had an interview, and the interviewer said my personal statement was one of the best she had ever read, that it clearly presented who I was and the journey I have been on to reach this point. Hearing that made it totally worth the cost!”
