K applied ED to Franklin & Marshall and was admitted thanks to your help. They told his high school dean that they were very impressed by the quality of his application. Thanks for your help and all you've done for our family. P continues to thrive at Haverford as a junior. – A.K., parent of Application Boot Camp student(s)

Jen 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 Jen! 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 Jen's strategy with B’s applications worked perfectly. Jen 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
Since the Duke ED results came out we have been living in a state of euphoria! So super excited!!

College of William & Mary, Class of 2023
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

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
We are ecstatic that P was accepted to MIT through early admissions. We would like to express our deep gratitude to you, Yvonne, and others at Top Tier for guiding, supervising, and counseling P through the college admissions process! –L.A., Private Counseling parents

Maria, 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
Harvard Class of 2023
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
Kristen, 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

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
Eliza, thanks so much for your support. I recently looked into my Princeton folder on my laptop and found 27 files--multiple versions of essays, abstracts, graded writing papers and supporting documents. Each has been revised by you three to six times. I couldn't be more thankful for the time and effort you have put into helping me complete this application. I would not have dreamed of being accepted without your support! –H.N., Personal Boot Camp student

I would like to thank ABC for kickstarting my college app season! It felt fantastic to leave 4 intense days in August with several essays, edited with wonderful feedback.
