"Elizabeth, in high school you kept me to a rock hard schedule for my college applications and helped me to become a stronger problem-solver and writer. Now that I am graduating from George Washington U I have my sights set on graduate school. Once again, I turned to you for insights into the graduate admission process. I can’t think of anyone who is more knowledgeable, skilled and caring."

"I just wanted to take the time out to tell you which college I’ve committed to. I decided that I will be attending Rider University in the fall. Rider University offered me a great scholarship and I’m very excited that I will be there in the fall. Also, the swimming coach recruited me to be on the team and also gave me a sizable scholarship. I’m really excited that it is on the East Coast and I know that I will fit in there. I wanted to thank you again for all of your help. Without your help, I don’t know how I would have gotten through the admissions process. I hope all is well and I hope to talk to you soon."

"After helping Olivia get into Stanford, Elizabeth is now working with our second daughter, Victoria. Elizabeth has a special way with children. She is exciting and fun to work with. She knows how to uplift children’s spirits and motivate them to do their best. She is enthusiastic, yet disciplined in the way she works. She really cares and my daughter knows it. We think anyone who has the opportunity to work with Elizabeth should do it and do it before problems develop. If you want your children to succeed, and who doesn’t, we would strongly recommend they work with Elizabeth for academic counseling and college advising early on in the high school years."

"Elizabeth LaScala was the most influential and supportive person in my college search and application process. I had a difficult time during my junior year of high school balancing elite sports obligations and academic expectations. Sadly, the situation hurt my grades. I felt hopeless and my dreams of attending a fine university were crushed. I contacted Elizabeth and her help was beyond anything that I could have possibly gotten anywhere else. Because of her guidance, I am enrolled at Stanford University with a swimming scholarship. With her support I have opportunities today that I never would have dreamed possible."

“The greatest reward is to know that you have actually affected a young person’s life in a positive way. This is the reason I started working in education and continues to be the source of my boundless motivation and energy.”
