High Praise From Past Clients:

Thank you for the support! I wouldn’t even be in this position without your (and M.’s) support and guidance throughout the entire college apps process. I’m truly grateful. – T.C., Private Counseling student

UPENN Class of 2022
K., I honestly can’t thank you enough for your patience, tolerance and understanding. Your guidance has been invaluable to P, and he continues to follow through on everything you have discussed - he remains steadfast and incredibly focused. – parent of sophomore Private Counseling student
I just wanted to reach out to say that I am in LOVE with the entire Barnard/ Columbia community. I am already involved in a few clubs/groups around campus and I have finally finalized my academic schedule.Sometimes, when I’m walking back from Butler (albeit at 3 am after studying all night) it hits me that I actually go here, that I made it. Your help and advice throughout my high school years has been invaluable.Again, New York has been treating me well and I cannot thank you enough for pointing me in the direction of Barnard/ Columbia.” C.C., Private Counseling student
"You guys are amazing! We are over-the-moon excited!  We cannot thank you enough for pouring your heart and soul into supporting our family. Everything worked out so beautifully. WOW!!!  THANK YOU.  We look forward to a lasting friendship for many years." – Private Counseling parent, Harvard Class of 2022
"I just wanted to tell you that I was accepted ED to WASH U!!! Thank you SO MUCH for helping me!"-E.W., Private Counseling Program student
Thank you both for all your efforts with T. We know she can now handle college and beyond. We’ve noticed such growth in her confidence and abilities over the four years. Thank you! –L.M., Parent of Private Counseling student
Thank you so much for all of your help over the past three years. I would not have been able to make it this far without your guidance. –P.K., Private Counseling student
George Washington University, Class of 2022
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
"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
K., 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
UPENN Class of 2023
Thank you again for all the help M, I couldn't do it without you! I still can't believe I am choosing between Yale, Cornell, Vanderbilt, Rice, and Wash U. –J.K., Private Counseling student
I'm SO grateful to you for the coaching and suggestions that put me on the more scholarly path I've been following these last few years.  Yes, getting into Williams is great -- but even greater, I think, is the lifelong impact that my high school academic endeavors will have on me. Being exposed to outstanding professors and bright and ambitious students after my freshman year opened up my mind to all kinds of possibilities, and changed my ideas about what I wanted to strive for, how I approach learning, and what I think I am capable of achieving.  The college acceptances are nice, but they don't even seem like the central focus anymore -- the process itself was really the reward.  I'm more grateful to you and to Top Tier than I can say. –C.K., Private Counseling student
Thank you to you and Y 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
"As you already knew, S. was accepted by Penn Engineering School. It is her dream school. I would like to thank you for all the help and guidance you gave her in the past few years. She would not have achieved her goal otherwise. What you taught her can benefit her beyond college counseling. I am happy for my decision to choose you as S.'s counselor almost 4 years ago."- I.R., Private Counseling program parent
I just wanted to tell you: I GOT INTO YALE!!!!! I have been on cloud 9, and I’m still so shocked and excited! But I wanted to thank you both so much for everything; I couldn’t have done it without your guidance and support. –M.J., Private Counseling student
Yale Class of 2023
"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
M., 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
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
"We are ALL on Cloud 9!!! The fit at Penn was so perfect for K. that it was hard for me to believe that he wouldn’t get in…  but there’s always the random factor that there are so many excellent candidates that even an amazing young man like K. could be passed over (says Mom!).  I’m so glad that they recognized his value and potential. Many thanks again for all your help!" -R.P, Private Counseling program parent
"I imagine you have heard by now that I got in to Vanderbilt. I would just like to take this moment to thank you for all of the feedback, advice, and encouragement you have given me along the way. You have been so helpful, and I wish you all the best with your future students. Thank you so much!"-- F.Z., Private Counseling student
