Compassionate and Thorough
Ms. Thomas gave me advice on how to appeal my state university rejection of my application for Arizona residency as a student. Being classified as a resident would allow me to pay instate tuition for the rest of my education, at great savings to myself. She knew a great deal about the residency appeal process and her instructions on how to go about the appeal were very clear. I won my appeal, and she deserves a great deal of credit.
