It's a great compliment when families refer SJC College Counseling to their friends and neighbors or contact us to work with a younger sibling. Here are a few recent comments:

 

"The peace of mind and organization that Sandy brought to the whole process was outstanding. She helped get our son, who was very behind in his preparations, focused and excited about his options for universities. He really enjoyed working with Sandy and was ultimately accepted to every school he applied to and received academic scholarships to boot! Sandy is great at what she does and truly enjoys working with students and families. She is excellent to work with and we're looking forward to working with her again this year to help us get our daughter ready."

I really appreciated that you always made yourself available to help when I most needed it, often on short notice. You genuinely cared about each essay I wrote and how to put me in the best position possible to get into my target schools. In addition, your patience made the whole process a lot smoother for me!"

"My son was accepted everywhere he applied... and received a merit scholarship to the honors program at * University... You were instrumental in making that happen!"

Parent, Class of 2016 at Broad Run High School, Class of 2020 at College of William and Mary
