"Elizabeth was super supportive even across the continent. She helped me to both realize and then focus on my academic strengths. Thank you!"

Working with Elizabeth was a great experience. My son was a student at Cal Poly and decided to change majors since he was struggling with his major. He attended a community college to improve his grades and determine what major would be best for him. By the time he improved his grades, the schools in California were impacted by the state’s financial crisis and he had no idea how to get back into any school.

Elizabeth met with my son and reviewed his transcripts and suggested he apply to CSU schools. She even contacted and put my son in touch with transfer counselors at Cal State East Bay and SF State. He was then able to take charge. He even was motivated enough to get on line for community college coursework registration at 4am one morning to ensure he would get the classes he need to transfer! That would never have happened without Elizabeth’s proactive and positive approach. My son has been accepted to SF State in the spring. Without Elizabeth’s guidance I truly believe Richard would not be back in school with a bright future in business."

I will send you the schedule!"

"Elizabeth delivers everything she promises and more. She was our guide through the entire college application process until all admission decisions were in. Ryan had many great options to consider and it was a tough decision for our family. Elizabeth and her team did some in depth research for us on each selection, including total cost of attendance over 4 years and the strengths and weaknesses of each college based on our son’s academic interests and the kind of school he always wanted to attend. Big sports, very large school near a major city and strong internship opportunities. Ultimately, we had the scholarship money our family needed to make it work and Ryan was able to make a decision about what college he was most excited to attend!"

"Thank you for all you have helped me to accomplish over the past two years of high school. Starting with a list of pre-med programs that fit my priorities and interests, steering me toward the right test preparation at the right time and working through each application essay until I reached the finish line, you were the vital link to being a successful applicant. Now I have to make a tough decision since I have so many offers to consider!"

"I write bearing good news. I have received acceptances to UPenn, Boston College, Villanova, USC, and Boston University so far! I wanted to thank you so much for all of your help through this entire process, and in particular for the help with writing my personal statement. I know that the writing was a huge component in my acceptance to these programs. I have officially decided to attend the Penn program in Counseling and Mental Health Services program!"
