What Parents and Students Are Saying

I can’t thank you enough for helping Ali. Your words and corrections to her application essays were always encouraging and uplifting. I will be sure to let you know how the scholarships turn out and which college she decides to attend.

Thanks so much Wendy! It has been an absolute pleasure working on these application essays with you!

I think you got a good sense of who Meredith is and what may be a good match for her. When we began this process, I was truly overwhelmed. I now feel like this process is “do-able”, thanks to you.

You have been wonderful! I did go to your talk at the Freeport Library and it was very helpful. We ended up applying Early Decision to Syracuse University and he was accepted. Also he got a decent package of $40,000—they met the expected family contribution. I followed everything you suggested regarding the essay and the extra questions. Now we need to figure out loans and such but Quinn is very pleased and it was a stretch school!

Thank you so very much for all of your help, Wendy.  I don’t know what we would have done without you! We truly appreciate your expertise, wisdom and support throughout this journey. We plan to stay in touch and hope you will be available as we begin the college search for Aidan.

Thank you, Wendy, for all your help and support! It definitely helped alleviate the anxiety to start filling out the app early, and we really valued your counsel.

I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for all you have done to bring clarity to the college selection process. The questionnaires, email exchanges, and our meeting were so helpful in finetuning our thought process and guiding our conversations. We are so very grateful to you for sharing your expertise with us.

Sara is right—she could not have done this without you. You really made the process SO less stressful at least for us. You two made a great team.

I cannot thank you enough for your assistance in this application process. Not only was his application much better because of it, but it was also better for our relationship to have someone else work with him on the application. I am confident he got into his first choice college because of your assistance.

Thank you for helping his star shine through! Every cent well worth it and I wish I had listened to my mom when she said to hire you for my daughter! He credits this mostly to you! (as well as his sanity—he had many sleepless nights, if you couldn’t tell from his frantic emails). We are all beyond happy with his acceptance and full scholarship at BU! More than we ever dreamed possible!

 

Wow! You have been such an enormous help! Your professional expertise and perseverance have been wonderful! There were many moments over the past few months that I never thought those applications would meet the deadlines. You spared me from having to nag and inquire (I did a little). I am terribly grateful!

Thank you so much for all your help with her college search and application process. During this stressful college search time, she appreciates your positive approach and helping her to uncover her strengths. We really feel that the process was smooth and you assisted with the toughest parts! This helped us preserve our relationship with her 😊, so we wouldn’t be constantly nagging. Occidental College will be great. She is thrilled to be accepted Early Decision 2. We wish you well in the future and would be happy to provide references if requested.

I really loved all the schools we visited, and plan on applying to all four of them. I could see myself being happy attending any of them, they all seem like fantastic options for me. Thank you so much for directing me to these colleges which seem like great matches for me in terms of what I want in a school.

Words can’t express our appreciation for your guidance, expertise, and patience in assisting Peter-Owen with the application process. Many, many thanks. It is an exciting time for these kids, but I also think it is a time of much uncertainty as they begin to navigate the next stages of their lives. You helped bring certainty to the table, maintained peace in the family, and helped us as parents understand the process and our role.

Thanks for all your help with Emma. You have been great and your support is appreciated. We could not be doing this without you!

Thank you for the time and attention you gave to Ella’s materials. Your thoughtful feedback on her essays was especially helpful. We’ve gotten “unstuck” and are moving along. The first application is complete and Ella is working her way through six more and hopes to complete the initial applications this week.

Thank you so very much for all of your help, Wendy.  I don’t know what we would have done without you! We truly appreciate your expertise, wisdom and support throughout this journey. We plan to stay in touch and hope you will be available as we begin the college search for Aidan.

I’m very glad we found you! Grace was motivated to take steps and cold imagine other possibilities after we met. I really appreciate your getting her in contact with Lauren for the inside scoop on the university in Dublin. You’ve been a big help to us in just one meeting!

When our son Richard was a HS student at Stanstead College, Wendy was instrumental in guiding him in his college application process, and surely a big reason why he was accepted at his first choice, Northwestern, as an early decision admit.

A couple of years later, we did not hesitate to hire Wendy again to help our daughter with her application, and once again, Wendy came through, as Sophie was admitted on early decision at the University of Pennsylvania.

I’m proud of my great kids, but at the same time I am certain that Wendy’s assistance was a big part of their successful applications, and I recommend her without hesitation. She was knowledgeable and easy to work with, for both the students and their parents.
