Acceptances are IN!
Thank you both for all your efforts with T. We know she can now handle college and beyond. We’ve noticed such growth in her confidence and abilities over the four years. Thank you! –L.M., Parent of Private Counseling student
Dear K, R felt very positive about his session with you. I haven’t seen him this upbeat about his prospects for the math section in a long time (if ever!).  We’d like to have you continue with him weekly if possible, until the March SAT, and we can re-evaluate as necessary after that. Thank you! –G.F., SAT tutoring parent
I really appreciate all of your hard work, suggestions and help for P. This has been immensely helpful and do not think we could have done this without you.  Really appreciate all the creative ideas and added activities that really help make P’s application stand out a little more.  We will definitely keep you in the loop and have already given you as a referral to several families. You have been awesome. Thank you! –B.B., parent of Personal Boot Camp student
I wanted to send you a note to thank you for all the help you have given to P for her college essays. You have helped her so much within such a short period of time. I wish we had found you earlier. We wasted so much time and effort since the summer. I have a 9th grader and I know who to turn to for help now. Thank you, J! I will be in touch. –L.K., Essay Guidance Program parent
Thank you for all of your help and support over the last four years. C is IN at UPENN/Wharton! Very excited for C and a big sigh of relief for all of us. Glad that C can enjoy her winter break! –O.D., Private Counseling parent
L, I CANT BELIEVE IT! We are done with all of the essays! It is my birthday today and I couldn’t have gotten a better birthday present. Thank you so much for responding soooo quickly and helping me in this process. I have learned a lot from you and you are an excellent and kind teacher. I don't think anyone else on this planet could have done a better job than you did. Thanks again! –F.H., Essay Guidance Program student
E., I just wanted to let you know that I got into Barnard Early Decision! Thank you for everything you have done!!! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate everything you did for me! Thank You!! - H.L., Personal Boot Camp student
Barnard, Class of 2023
As we are nearing the end of this application process, only Colgate and Michigan applications left, I can not thank you enough for all of your assistance, advice and support. I would like to highlight the support piece as I think both P and I derived significant comfort from having an outside, very experienced advisor to turn to. Your edits and advice have been invaluable. I can not tell you how happy P was each time she saw an email from you that said “if you accept these edits, the essay is ready to go”. Immediately I would hear about it!!From a very depressed state, with your help, P is almost through a very long, daunting process, and is feeling much better. Although it’s not over yet…. a million thanks.I hope you will still be advising when my son R gets to this process (he’s in 10th grade now). Thank you again! –N.M., Essay Guidance Program parent
I want to express my gratitude for your passion, dedication and care in helping K to showcase his personal story and qualities in the college admissions process. I could not be more pleased with the guidance you have given K over the past five years. For this I will forever be thankful. All the best to you and your family! S.R., Private Counseling parent
Dartmouth Class of 2023
L., thank you for your guidance on my Tufts essay! The word limit is perfect and I just uploaded it on to the Common App :). Thanks so much for your kind words, they really mean a lot to me. I am so grateful that I have someone as qualified and experienced as you to help me through this process. I seriously could not do it without you. You have taught me a lot about essay writing and I am so appreciative of your help. – J.Y., Transfer Essay Guidance student
K., you have probably heard by now from P that he got accepted into Penn. We write to express our gratitude and heartfelt thanks for your patient and strategic guidance all along the application process. You have kept us on course and been consistently honest with us. Your wise counsel at many critical junctures in the last two years since our enrollment in the private counseling program has, even given his legacy status, we firmly believe, made a material difference. P couldn’t have done it without you so a big THANK YOU from all of us! –C.P., parent of Private Counseling student
UPENN Class of 2023
"I wanted to let you know that my journey through the college application process has officially come to an end. I was accepted to Duke in the ED round! I can't thank you enough for all your guidance and support in the process. It has truly been a privilege working with you. The feedback you gave me was so generous and helped me to elevate my essays beyond what I thought was possible. Ironically, in the end, all I needed was my personal statement and my 150-word 'why' for Duke, but I'm so glad I was prepared for the regular decision round. Thank you again for everything!" – S.Y., Essay Guidance Program student
Our Personal Boot Camp was great - intense, meaningful, & productive! Communication was 100% prior to the Boot Camp, our emailed questions were answered very quickly and thoroughly and during Boot Camp everything was perfect. We didn't have any concerns or questions. Post Boot Camp communication has continued to be wonderful!J. was truly a perfect match for S. She quickly bonded with her, truly listened to what she wanted to share in her essays, and guided her towards writing wonderful submissions! I know S. would love to stay in touch with her forever - she truly is an exceptional mentor. Our son will be yours too! –S.M., parent of Personal Boot Camp student
Since the Duke ED results came out we have been living in a state of euphoria! So super excited!! Thank you so much for all the guidance, motivation, and encouragement you gave T to prepare her for her dream school. Without your help, T would not have had such a great application. –P.S., Private Counseling parent
Duke Class of 2023
M., I have GREAT news!!!! After a ton of nerves and anticipation, I found out last night that I've been admitted to the Class of 2023 Harvard University! I couldn't be happier to be in (and to not have to write a bunch of essays this weekend too)! With all this being said, I want to thank you for all of the incredible advice, support, and help you provided me over the course of the last 15 months. Your guidance made my college process infinitely less stressful and gave me a clear vision of the steps I wanted and needed to take in order to get an outcome of which I was proud. Thank you again!”–M.K., Private Counseling student

Boot Camp was the most incredible experience. It made me push myself into thinking about my future and prepared me to send in all my applications. I am so thankful that I got the help I needed at Boot Camp because it made my application process effortless once I had completed my essays. I think that the colleges were able to clearly see my goals and ambitions through the writing of my essays. I believe this helped me have a very successful application process. –P.K., Application Boot Camp student
