High Praise From Past Clients:

"We are all thrilled that K got accepted to Wellesley. Thank you for your expertise, knowledge, and advice not to drop French. Thank you for your outstanding professionalism, promptly answering emails, and your support in moments of crisis. Most of all, thank you for CARING. K. never felt she was another number in your program. We plan to enroll our son in the future." -V.L., One on One package parent
"We are teary and happy and thankful. God bless you both." – Private Counseling parent, Dartmouth Class of 2022
"We are ALL on Cloud 9!!! The fit at Penn was so perfect for K. that it was hard for me to believe that he wouldn’t get in…  but there’s always the random factor that there are so many excellent candidates that even an amazing young man like K. could be passed over (says Mom!).  I’m so glad that they recognized his value and potential. Many thanks again for all your help!" -R.P, Private Counseling program parent
"I am hopeful, and also grateful for working with you. M has always been intrinsically talented, but talent alone isn’t enough. It needs to be channeled and encouraged to achieve its full expression. That’s what has happened with Top Tier, and I say that irrespective of outcome." --P.N., Private Counseling parent
"Thanks, we appreciate your guidance during this entire process. You gave a great road map to provide structure and support during the arduous application process. You definitely pushed K (and us!) to find the niche he could make his own.  Without your advice, I know K would not have had such a strong application. Thanks again for all of your guidance over the last 4 years." – Private Counseling parent, Stanford Class of 2022
“Thank you so much for your input as R. has shown much more commitment since we engaged with Top Tier Admissions. Reinforcement from you is really helping R. Thank you!" --T.U., Private Counseling Program parent
"I am here at Berkeley and loving it! The weather is amazing, the classes are engaging, the place is really vibrant and filled with opportunities. I am taking the opportunity to really thank you for your professional guidance, without which I wouldn't have been here! I have never been so happy in my life! Please do let me know if any circumstances bring you here!" -S.O., Private Counseling Student
"I'm happy to inform you I got accepted to Harvard.  My conversation that I think changed my mindset towards the application was the one I had with you about writing an essay about 4 memorable lines of a literary work.  Your help with that essay helped me frame myself as something beyond just a math nerd. There were countless other things that you helped me on, from essays to interview tips to other small bits of advice.  Thank you very much." – Private Counseling student, Harvard Class of 2022
"You’ll be happy to hear that I am part of Barnard College of Columbia University’s Class of 2022! I was admitted under their early decision program and I will be double majoring in physics and dance! Thank you so much for all of your help over the years and in getting me to this moment. It was one of the best feelings I have ever experienced opening my application and seeing the 'confetti' on the screen and the word 'Congratulations.' "  -Private Counseling student, Barnard Class of 2022
"Notre Dame is awesome; I love it up here! My classes are fun and very challenging. I have been to all the home games and the tradition here is truly amazing! I couldn't have done it without your guidance and ongoing strategies. Can't begin to thank you."-W.B, Private Counseling program student
"I am so excited, I move in Monday!!! I can't believe that I am headed off to my dream school in 24 hours! Thank you so much for all you have done to help me reach this point. You are some of the nicest, most intelligent people I have ever met and I have learned so much in general along the way. Thank you and I hope to come and visit sometime in the future!" -J.C., Private Counseling student
"My son just started his junior year at Stanford. We enlisted M. and M.'s help when he was finishing up his freshman year.  They are the best at what they do. My son got accepted to almost every college that he applied to and we can honestly say their service played a vital role. We could not have done it without them." -T.V, Private Counseling program parent
"Cornell accepted me! Thank you for all of your guidance during my application process. I truly don't think I would've made it this far without all of your help and brutal honesty." – Private Counseling student, Cornell Class of 2022

"Thank you, as always, for encouraging, guiding, and facilitating with the college admissions process that extended deeply and practically into educational motivation, going above and beyond in all one does and lifelong learning." -K.G., Private Counseling Student
"You guys are amazing! We are over-the-moon excited!  We cannot thank you enough for pouring your heart and soul into supporting our family. Everything worked out so beautifully. WOW!!!  THANK YOU.  We look forward to a lasting friendship for many years." – Private Counseling parent, Harvard Class of 2022
"I imagine you have heard by now that I got in to Vanderbilt. I would just like to take this moment to thank you for all of the feedback, advice, and encouragement you have given me along the way. You have been so helpful, and I wish you all the best with your future students. Thank you so much!"-- F.Z., Private Counseling student
"As you already knew, S. was accepted by Penn Engineering School. It is her dream school. I would like to thank you for all the help and guidance you gave her in the past few years. She would not have achieved her goal otherwise. What you taught her can benefit her beyond college counseling. I am happy for my decision to choose you as S.'s counselor almost 4 years ago."- I.R., Private Counseling program parent
"We just got the news that L secured admission at GW! We are extremely excited and happy about this decision and wanted to convey our sincere thanks for helping L prepare for this very critical move in her life. Thank you so much for all your assistance, guidance and patience throughout the process. She couldn't have done this without you." – Private Counseling parent, GW Class of 2022
