“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.”

“Elizabeth spoke with me over the phone today and gave me quick, accurate advice regarding financial aid for free! It was nice to talk with someone who is so knowledgeable. I plan to get in touch with her much sooner for my next child.”

“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.”

“Thank you so much for your unwavering assistance and support on my road to college. You were such an integral part of my successful applications, especially in helping me gain admission to my dream school, Brown University. Steering me away from missteps, always providing the reasons for your recommendations, respecting both my wishes, while addressing my parents’ concerns (not an easy feat for anyone) are just some of many ways you supported me through this process. I owe you so much. Please let me know if there is ever anything I can do for you, or one of your clients.”

“Elizabeth and I worked closely to develop a well-researched and balanced list of schools. She informed me that when it came to choosing a medical school, it wasn’t about the name but instead whether it was the right fit for me.

In college I majored in chemical engineering and I knew I wanted to take a gap year after graduation. During that gap year, I thought I should take an engineering job, but Elizabeth encouraged me to see that this would be a misstep. Instead she guided me to work in a health care setting before applying to dental schools—volunteering as well as shadowing in a dental office. Ultimately, I was hired to work full-time in a dental office and I believe this made all the difference in the strength of my applications. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is interested in attending a graduate or professional degree school.”

“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.”
