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
"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
"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 profoundly for the support you have provided to our children. Far more than assisting with packaging, you helped them identify and develop their true passions, which enabled persuasive, unique stories for their applications. And the results were extraordinary! Your skills are matched only by your commitment to your students and your tireless work ethic. We wish you and your families a wonderful holiday." – Private Counseling parent, Harvard Class of 2022
"On behalf of S, I am pleased to share that she has been accepted to Dartmouth’s class of 2022! THANK YOU, for all you and your colleagues at Top Tier did to assist S with this accomplishment.

We look forward to a lasting friendship for many years." – Private Counseling parent, Harvard Class of 2022
"Even more good news, T was admitted to MIT last night! She had lots of tears. Very fortunate to be able to get into her #1 choice early, and not have to do any more applications or waiting.

"I WAS ACCEPTED TO HARVARD!!!!!!! Thank you so so so much! ***I know this is so melodramatic*** BUT from the moment I read your first edits I knew my essays were going to be magic.

I cannot imagine anyone being able to successfully complete a good, well-rounded application without help. ABC does does that: help. There is literally no time for procrastination at Boot Camp. Instead of stressing myself out waiting until the last minute to do my essays and the Common App 5, I literally HAD to just write. I loved that.

"I truly believe ABC made a dramatic difference in T's application/outcomes (and will continue to do so as the season unfolds). We were all shocked to learn on Saturday that not only had Tulane accepted him, but were offering almost full tuition, unsolicited, in merit aid with a four year guarantee. Just wanted to say "thanks" and holy cow. You guys really enabled him to put his best foot forward. Thanks again for all you guys did to help him through a confusing, challenging process for teens!" --W.P., Application Boot Camp parent
