College of William & Mary, Class of 2023
Clearly, Application Bootcamp and Top Tier took a lot of anxiety out of the whole situation. Our children know a number of kids who did not get into their top choice ED school, only to be devastated and stressed as they are without a plan for ED II and regular decision and have not worked on a range of essays for other schools. So while F & J’s EA-only strategy is not for everyone but made sense for them since they did not have a clear lead school when they were applying, being prepared made all the difference. The help Bootcamp provided in honing their voice and words into essays that reflect their intent was fantastic.In the end, it is all about having choices they are happy with, and I am happy to say they both have those now! –F.A., parent of Application Boot Camp students
Such good news… P got into Columbia and Duke! Such great news! She also received the Regents Scholarship at UC Berkeley! She could not have gotten these without your help! Thank you!! –G.T., parent of Private Counseling student
Thank you to you and Yvonne for the help over the years - I’m very thankful for the guidance you provided me with and know that without it, the college process would’ve been much more difficult and unmanageable for me! –O.S., Private Counseling student
Thanks a million for all your guidance and support! We are forever grateful! T.R., parent of Private Counseling student, Princeton
I wanted to say thank you again for all your help! I got into UPenn, Cornell, Barnard, Wellesley, Wesleyan, Tufts, University of Michigan, and Wake Forest, and am waiting to hear from Georgetown; I think I'm leaning towards UPenn. Thank  you so much for all your guidance; I don't think I could have done it without your help! --I.R., Application Boot Camp student
J. exceeded my expectations for B’s Personal Boot Camp. She was experienced and informative regarding the admissions process, and worked well with B to complete 13 essays in a weekend. The program was so organized and the best part was completing so many essays in such a short time period.I had many questions regarding the admission process and she answered all of them completely. She also reassured me about B.’s college choices and suggested others. I was really impressed with J.! She worked extremely well with B. and it was a painless process for me as a parent. B.’s applications are complete without any arguments or stress!Overall, it was a great experience and J.'s strategy with B.’s applications worked perfectly. J. was a pleasure to work with and really helped his applications come to life. I have recommended TTA to a friend, and this is my second time using your services. My older son was accepted to his first choice college.” –T.F., parent of Personal Boot Camp student
"On top of Yale, I ended up getting into Harvard, Stanford, and Princeton, and am planning on attending the visit days for them in order to make my decision! Thank you both so much for your advice, your support, and all the continuous revising; it made all the difference!" --M.L., Private Counseling student

“Thank you!! We are thrilled that C. got into his dream school!! He is super excited! We feel that his thoughtful application and essays put him above other competitive applicants. I can't thank you all enough. Kudos to all of you! Senior counselors, especially, were amazing. C. really enjoyed working with his mentor.” –S.P., parent of Application Boot Camp student
“I am amazed at how much S. got done this week AND he was even smiling when we left!” –P.N., Parent of Application Boot Camp Student
Haverford's comment on "awesome application and ...EASY to advocate for you" is due in no small part to you and the Top Tier BOOT CAMP and consulting. Yes, P did the work, but you guided us in the activities that she should spend her time on, and eliminate non "core" activities that added little value as she became an upperclassman.She has punched above her weight, and because of K. and Top Tier she is on a path for a wonderful academic career.After we recover from the shock and celebrate, get ready for our next child to be a part of the Top Tier family! – Parent of Private Counseling/Application Boot Camp student
Dear M., M., K., H., and the rest of the ABC team, Thank you so much for an incredible four days at Boot Camp.

"We are thrilled! Duke is absolutely fantastic and is the exact right fit for K. Application Boot Camp definitely helped her get into Duke during their most selective year in history, a year in which they turned away well over 2,000 Valedictorians. Thank you!" -Y.R., parent of ABC student accepted to 9 top-tier colleges
