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

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!Jen 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
Kristen, I heard from St Andrews this morning and they’ve have offered me an unconditional acceptance to read English and Philosophy for a Master of Arts!!!  I am so pleased to have a first acceptance, and to have it be unconditional is fantastic. Once again, I can't thank you enough for all of your help and guidance. I truly believe it has made all the difference in my application and how I present myself as a candidate. –W.R., Private Counseling student

"Thank you M., M. and K. for your support throughout this process. The past year has been transformational in N.'s preparation to become a competitive candidate for NYU Stern following the "wake up call" of the report and the first conference call with you. Thank you M. also for the recommendation on taking the Harvard Stats 104 Class. It was tougher than any class at Hockaday, but definitely worth it."-- C.H., Boot Camp parent
Learning how admissions officers perceive and view my essays and applications has been so valuable.
Boot Camp 2014 student
If there is any reference or feedback you ever want for a prospective client for Boot Camp, please send them my way. You and everyone handled the students so well - firmly, maturely, but with care and patience knowing this is a time of great pressure and anxiety for them. Having them finish with smiles, prepared for the next steps, and better yet - excited for the next chapter of their lives - is wonderful. I would tell anyone considering the program that for our children, they felt it was valuable, and for us, it delivers on what it promises - getting children ready, well- positioned, and less anxious for their application process. – S.P., parent of Application Boot Camp student
