College Admissions Consulting
See what my clients have to say about their experience working through the College Admissions process.
You are an amazing person Amanda, and I’m so happy I met you and worked with you. I honestly couldn’t have done it without you!
I didn’t even know where to start when applying to colleges; but after having Amanda on my side, I was not only able to narrow down my colleges of interest with the help of her expertise, but fill in all my applications with ease and perfection. My college supplement essays became flawless after her detailed editing, while letting me know what colleges look for in applications and essays. I am confident that Amanda guided and gave me direction for my prefect college match, forever changing my life by allowing me to live up to my greatest potential.
From the moment we met with Amanda I knew we wanted to work with her. She is extremely informative and well prepared. Amanda simplified the difficult task of identifying the best schools to apply to and with her strong educational credentials, we knew that Natalie’s essays were being reviewed by an expert. Thank you Amanda!
Having Amanda was so enriching because even though I had my own college counselor at school, I had another professional opinion on my essays. At the beginning of my college search I decided I wanted only small schools and Amanda did a lot of research based on what I wanted in a school. She helped me find the schools that best suited my interests and even went to some college fairs to learn more about the schools I was considering. When I decided to look at bigger schools really late in the application process, my college adviser at school had no time because he was helping all of his other students so I freaked out and called Amanda; she calmed me down, spent lots of time talking to me about what my new preferences were, and did even more research to help me find new schools. I do not know what I would have done without Amanda and I would definitely recommend her to everyone!
Amanda was so helpful in making decisions of where to apply. She helped me narrow down my choices and guided me through the entire application process. Thank you so much!
This is amazing coaching for Ethan! I’m sure it is confidence-building for him to have some structure and concrete goals; I know it lowers my anxiety!
You have touched our lives with your guidance and support during these very challenging “roads” that Kerry has faced and met with confidence because of you. Thank you from our heart.
Amanda was a great asset to my daughter in her college application process. Her knowledge base, coupled with a warm and caring personality, make her a delight to work with. My daughter heard her comments because she knew how to give feedback. She helped her with the application process and gave her input that truly improved her essays. I recommend Amanda and I am sure you will be very happy to have her help you navigate the complexities as well as the anxieties of the college application process.
