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


"Thank you so much for everything you've done to help me figure out and get through the application process. Working with you made me feel much less overwhelmed and kept me on track, and I think I would have felt utterly lost as I tried to narrow down schools and figure out what I was looking for if I hadn't had you to help me. Your help with my Common App essay, in particular, was absolutely invaluable; I ended up with an essay that I feel demonstrates an impressive amount of who I am, and that I am proud of. Overall, I'm not sure I could have submitted an Early Decision application that I was proud of if it weren't for you!"

"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!"

"Thanks again for all your help and encouragement. I really don't think we would have gotten to this point without you."

"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 of Broad Run High School graduate attending the College of William and Mary


"Since he started working with you my son is a hundred times more excited and focused on the college process.... Your help was incredibly valuable. I'll reach out to you again to start thinking about my next son's journey into college."
