"DFC has been a game changer. My mentor was amazing. She made me realize that I could get through the application process, and she also helped make it less stressful."  Sannicks was accepted into seven schools  — including the University of Michigan, where she is now attending.

"My DFC mentor was very helpful in this process, -- probably more than my faculty advisor.” Iesha-LaShay says her Truman application experience would definitely have been different without DFC. For example, DFC arranged mock interviews with past Truman Scholars, which allowed her to practice and get feedback from people who successfully went through the process in the past.
