"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
"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)
K., a huge thanks from me and T to you. We couldn't have gotten through this process without your help. Our anxiety level has certainly dropped and we’re very happy with T’s acceptances thus far. This definitely calls for a very enjoyable holiday season! –P.W., parent of Private Counseling student
"S is planning to join USC for Aerospace Engineering! I am personally very happy for her and want to thank you once again for all your help and support. It was simply invaluable. Wishing you the very best."

Tufts Class of 2023
"I want to express my gratitude for your passion, dedication and care in helping K to showcase his personal story and qualities in the college admissions process. I could not be more pleased with the guidance you have given K over the past five years. For this I will forever be thankful. All the best to you and your family!" S.R., Private Counseling parent
"I wanted to let you know that I have been accepted by my first-choice school — the College of William & Mary! Thank you for your guidance in this process. I couldn’t be happier!"
– M.J., Application Boot Camp student
College of William & Mary, Class of 2023
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
MIT Class of 2023
"P has heard from two schools, Sewanee and Davidson. She got into both!  We expected a Sewanee acceptance after her visit, but it is a comfort to know she got in.  Davidson was a total unknown. But she got in, to a school with a 15% or so transfer acceptance rate. That is just awesome. I don't know if she ends up there, but it is really a great shot of confidence and happiness after a rather dismal twelve months. Thank you for your advice, thoughts and words through all of this. I tend to think this validates the essays. At least one very selective school liked what she wrote and liked her total package. That pleases me but also makes me hopeful for news to come. At any rate, I thought you would like to know, and to express my thanks for all of your time, thoughts and energy."
–M.K., parent, Transfer Essay Guidance Program
"On top of Yale, I ended up getting into Harvard, Stanford, and Princeton, and am planning on attending the visit days for them in order to make my decision! Thank you both so much for your advice, your support, and all the continuous revising; it made all the difference!" --M.L., Private Counseling student
Dr. Willmott, I just found out at 7pm today that I was accepted into Duke!! Thank you so so much for everything you have done for me these past few years, from helping me shape my interests, to reading dozens of my essays. I'm so excited to be a Blue Devil; I've been crying tears of joy for the past hour!” –R.S., Private Counseling student
Duke 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!J. 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
J. 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 J.! 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 J.'s strategy with B.’s applications worked perfectly. J. 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
"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
I wanted to let you know that I got in ED to Columbia! I am super excited to join my sister there. Thank you! –B.W., Personal Boot Camp student
"I just wanted to let you know that I was accepted ED to Tulane!!  J, I want to thank you for all the time and effort you put in to working with me both in Boston as well as over the last few months.  M., I am so thankful I had the opportunity to go to Boot Camp. It was incredibly valuable. In fact, the head of college counseling at my high school said my 'Why Tulane' essay was the best she has ever seen!" – C.T., Application Boot Camp student
Tulane Class of 2023
K., 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
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
"M, thanks so much for the kind words. Thank you also for all of your help over the past four years. Your realism and sound advice pushed me far beyond what I thought I was capable of, and I definitely wouldn't have made it this far otherwise! I'll keep you posted on what I'm doing at UChicago (I can't wait to get started!)"
–B.N., Private Counseling student, U Chicago
