What students and families are saying –

 
“You were very responsive to questions, encouraging, knowledgeable, and easy to work with!  For all of these reasons, we will not hesitate to team with you again for our younger son’s college search and application process this year! Working with you helped us keep positive family relationships going during a stressful time. You really do provide an incredible service!”

Parents, son attending Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI)

“Melinda, How can I ever thank you for all the support and great advice during the college search for my daughter?! You were clear, informative, open, and CALM during a very trying and scary time. With your help, she was accepted by six colleges, including her top choice! I would highly recommend you to any family during this difficult and confusing process! Thanks so much.”

Parent, daughter attending Maryland Institute College of Art

“So thankful for all your help throughout the whole college application process! You helped take so much stress off of my life!”

Student, University of Colorado Boulder, Leeds School of Business, Merit Scholarship

“I had the exciting yet complicated chance to sort through the offers of my three top colleges. You were so helpful in explaining the differences between the merit and need based offers and how much money would have to be repaid through loans and work-study versus outright gifts for each. Once I understood the financial side, it was much easier to go revisit these colleges and make my final decision. Thank you, Melinda. I don’t know how I would have gotten through this without you!”

Student, Chapman University, Chancellor’s Merit Scholarship

“I can’t thank you enough for all the support you gave me throughout this process. With you to guide me, I was accepted at my first choice college and I am so excited. I LOVE New York and can’t wait to be there to dance!”
