Top Tier Class of 2023 Results

Our Class of 2023 students had some amazing results! Read what parents and students had to say about how Top Tier Admissions helped with their college admissions success…

Acceptances are IN!
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
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
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
I got into MIT!! Thank you SO much for your help. I'm so excited!! –T.K., Private Counseling student
"M., I have GREAT news!!!! After a ton of nerves and anticipation, I found out last night that I've been admitted to 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
"I'm just so deeply grateful for everything that you and M have done for me... for always encouraging me, for giving me the tools to take my application to the next level, and for patiently explaining admissions strategies to me. I also can't even begin to thank you for all the time you spent on the phone rallying me when my confidence was shaken or I felt like everything I had worked for was going to fall apart because of the math section of the SAT. Having you as a coach was the best part of this insane process and my mom and I have no doubt that I wouldn't be going to Columbia if it weren't for your help. I'm excited about Columbia and about the scholarship (even though I'm not really sure what being a 'John Jay scholar' means) and am taking the time to reflect on what it is I want to do with my life. Thank you again, so very much!"
–B.S., Private Counseling student
"Thank you so much for your help and guidance. I wouldn't have been able to do it without you and the Top Tier Admissions Team! I'm still in between UPenn and Georgetown, but I will make sure to visit both."
–S.I., Application Boot Camp student
"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
"Thank you for all of your help and support over the last four years. C is IN at UPENN/Wharton! Very excited for C and a big sigh of relief for all of us. Glad that C can enjoy her winter break!" –O.D., Private Counseling parent
"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
"Clearly, Application Bootcamp and Top Tier took a lot of anxiety out of the whole situation. Our children know a number of kids who did not get into their top choice ED school, only to be devastated and stressed as they are without a plan for ED II and regular decision and have not worked on a range of essays for other schools. So while F & J’s EA-only strategy is not for everyone but made sense for them since they did not have a clear lead school when they were applying, being prepared made all the difference. The help Bootcamp provided in honing their voice and words into essays that reflect their intent was fantastic. In the end, it is all about having choices they are happy with, and I am happy to say they both have those now!"
–F.A., parent of Application Boot Camp students
"As we are nearing the end of this application process, only Colgate and Michigan applications left, I can not thank you enough for all of your assistance, advice and support. I would like to highlight the support piece as I think both P and I derived significant comfort from having an outside, very experienced advisor to turn to. Your edits and advice have been invaluable. I can not tell you how happy P was each time she saw an email from you that said 'if you accept these edits, the essay is ready to go.' Immediately I would hear about it!! From a very depressed state, with your help, P is almost through a very long, daunting process, and is feeling much better. Although it’s not over yet…. a million thanks. I hope you will still be advising when my son R gets to this process (he’s in 10th grade now). Thank you again!"
–N.M., Essay Guidance Program parent
"L, I CANT BELIEVE IT! We are done with all of the essays! It is my birthday today and I couldn’t have gotten a better birthday present. Thank you so much for responding soooo quickly and helping me in this process. I have learned a lot from you and you are an excellent and kind teacher. I don't think anyone else on this planet could have done a better job than you did. Thanks again!"
–F.H., 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
MIT Class of 2023
"H’s expertise and ability to improve my writing was so beneficial! She elevated my essays and helped bring out my own creativity and voice. H went above and beyond to be responsive and helpful. She always responded in a timely manner, and her feedback was generous and constructive. I thought this program was great; I wasn't able to attend the regular Boot Camp and found this to be an excellent alternative that worked with my schedule. I highly recommend Top Tier Admissions! The work I did with H definitely elevated my essays beyond what I would've been capable of on my own. Knowing I had an expert there to help, and wasn't doing this on my own, also greatly reduced my stress levels. I will be forever grateful to H for all of her assistance. It was truly a pleasure working with her, and you're lucky to have someone with her level of expertise on your staff. Thank you for matching me with her."
- P.C., Essay Guidance Program student, Duke
I got into NYU’s Liberal Global Study Program! I just want thank you for all your help and support during that intense three-day Boot Camp (I am so happy, and I'm running out of words to say). – J.M., Personal Boot Camp student
"We want to let you know that S was accepted into Brown. We are thrilled for him and grateful for all your help and support! He also got into UT Austin!"
– W.L., parent of Application Boot Camp student
Brown Class of 2023
"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)
On behalf of T, I'm letting you know that she has been accepted to Princeton. We cannot thank you enough for all your help! – P.N, Personal Boot Camp parent
"I know first hand how you run your business.  Off the charts ethical! We look forward to continuing our relationship with Top Tier's Application Boot Camp."
