"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. Your guidance and counsel is truly invaluable. S is extremely happy and very excited about her future at Dartmouth College! She is both honored and humbled. Top Tier played a big part in her success!" – Application Boot Camp parent, Dartmouth Class of 2022
"We are teary and happy and thankful. God bless you both." – Private Counseling parent, Dartmouth 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
"Just got a decision from UPenn. ACCEPTED!!!! 🙂 Still can’t believe it. Thank you so much for all the help you’ve given. Really appreciate it." – Essay Guidance Program student, U Penn Class of 2022
"We just got the news that L secured admission at GW! We are extremely excited and happy about this decision and wanted to convey our sincere thanks for helping L prepare for this very critical move in her life. Thank you so much for all your assistance, guidance and patience throughout the process. She couldn't have done this without you." – Private Counseling parent, GW Class of 2022
"P was accepted to Stanford (REA) last Friday! She attended ABC this summer as you know and couldn’t have done it without your team. Thank you so much for all your help. I have already referred my brother who has a 10th grader. Thanks again!" – Application Boot Camp parent, Stanford 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.  T had a really nice MIT essay package she crafted with your help that showed her unique self.  P, thanks for being T’s mentor and cheerleader. She was so appreciative of your help. Thanks everyone!" – Essay Guidance Program parent, MIT Class of 2022
"Cornell accepted me! Thank you for all of your guidance during my application process. I truly don't think I would've made it this far without all of your help and brutal honesty." – Private Counseling student, Cornell Class of 2022

And a HUGE thanks all the TTA staff who helped guide me with my essays! I couldn't have done this without you guys! GO BIG GREEN!!!" - Application Boot Camp student, Dartmouth Class of 2022
"You’ll be happy to hear that I am part of Barnard College of Columbia University’s Class of 2022! 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 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.  You are sharp and smart and the best wordsmith I've ever met.  I feel like I learned so much about writing and editing just by sending drafts back and forth with you!  Thank you again so much, you quite literally changed my life." – Essay Guidance Program student, Harvard Class of 2022

WOW!!!  THANK YOU.  We look forward to a lasting friendship for many years." – Private Counseling parent, Harvard 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

"To the entire staff of Application Boot Camp: A HUGE thank you for helping me navigate through the entire college process. The incredible support and encouragement from everyone there enabled me write insightful essays for the various colleges that I was applying to. I came back from Boot Camp every day feeling confident in myself and my ability to effectively communicate my ideas and thoughts into my essays and most of all, my entire application. I am so happy to say that I will be attending the University of Chicago this fall!!" --J.W., Application Boot Camp student
I feel SO prepared. There is no way I could have received this guidance anywhere else. ABC enabled me to be strategic about my plan going forward. Thank you!
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. Although I wrote and revised a few more essays at home, Boot Camp got me in the right mindset to do work that many of my peers are still feverishly completing. Now that I have been admitted to the MIT Class of 2019, this holiday season will be the most relaxed in years! Thanks again!! - E.B. - Application Boot Camp Student
"I GOT IN ED to Dartmouth! I am so grateful for all your support and the amazing ABC you run. I hope that other ABC students got good news as well! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!! And a HUGE thanks all the TTA staff who helped guide me with my essays! I couldn't have done this without you guys! GO BIG GREEN!!!" - Application Boot Camp student, Dartmouth Class of 2022
“What a duo you are! Thanks again for your support, patience, and understanding this past week. C. is confident and rejuvenated but realistic. He will consider all that you have said when reaching his strategic decisions.” –T.A., Parent of Application Boot Camp Student
"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
"Boot Camp was efficient, fun, and eliminated stress. Without this experience I never would have thought to write my main essay on my academic interest." -V. P., Boot Camp student
"Boot Camp is a premium program -- but it's worth it. I feel so much more confident going into my senior year! The follow up call with Mimi and Michele was very helpful and I made significant progress using suggestions from the call. The resources on the ABC Student Membership Site were helpful -- especially the 2014-2015 resource guide." - Application Boot Camp student

"ABC made the application process clear and taught me to optimize every chance I have in presenting myself in the best light to colleges." - Application Boot Camp Student
ABC not only helped me get my stuff done early, but made sure I left with edited essays. While my friends will get their applicantions done late and have them edited by parents and high school English teachers, I left with essays proofread by PhDs, admissions officers and professional college counselors . . . which is awesome!
"The report I received right after I registered showed me where my grades and scores placed me amongst my peers for the colleges I wanted to target. I appreciated the specific examples on how to improve my chances to get in at my top choice." -A.D., Boot Camp student
“You and your entire team are awesome! You were invaluable in helping P get on the right path! Great news today! P was accepted at Yale, Penn, Villanova, Wesleyan, Williams, Tulane, and the University of Virginia. Thank you for all you do to help these kids achieve their dreams! She is over the moon and will choose in short order! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!” --L.D., Application Boot Camp parent
