"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."

"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."
