-Jennifer J
"John was exceptional to work with during our college application process. He helped us navigate,
at times, the overwhelming college application process. He is very professional and trustworthy.
He always followed up with us promptly and kept realistic goals. My son was accepted to all the
schools on his list
-Florence O
"John walked my extremely overcommitted daughter through the rigorous process of applying for schools I never could have dreamed of her attending. Because of his timelines, weekly meetings, kind, yet honest, feedback and guidance she was accepted and received numerous scholarships to schools all over the US."
-Suzanne R
Great experience working with John who was recommended to me from a friend. He is kind, generous and fun as he plowed through, in a sequential way, the college application process. John’s help and knowledge relieved much stress in our home. -Claudia V

He put my daughter first, taking into considering what she wanted and helping her formulate the best decision for her. He was instrumental in helping her complete the common application and the essay.When I say he took the stress out of the entire college process, I sure mean it!
