Below are just a few testimonials parents and students!
"Hi Michele! It’s been way too long of a waiting process haha but……I got into USC!!!!!! I can’t thank you enough for helping me each step of the way. I really would not have been able to do it without you and I’m so glad I was able to work with you! Thank you so much!!! My dreams have come true and I’m so excited!"
"Thank you for helping me to feel comfortable with the whole process and not have to be stressed about missing a deadline. In addition, I felt like you really got to know me and help to lead me in the direction of colleges that would be a good fit, socially, and academically."
"Michele was extremely hands-on with my daughter who really needed it and she cares about the student and takes in consideration the concerns and needs of both the student and parent."

"Thank you so much for all of your help and guidance. You were a blessing to our family through the college process."
"Good morning! I just wanted to tell you how grateful I am for you. Yesterday we took our son to San Diego . He had such a wonderful time and he is so excited to go there. It is crazy how hard it is to get into these schools. We really appreciate all your hard work, patience and knowledge that you provided to him."
"Thank you for being an amazing communicator and your overall assistance in this stressful process. I especially appreciated all the help with essays and brainstorming. We will miss you!!"
"I believe the most helpful service was going through the Common App, applying to UC & Cal State schools, and helping devise strong writing segments for all the essay questions."
"You were very flexible with meeting times, we met at convenient spots, and you were always willing to help and guide me through certain steps outside of meetings, over text or Facetime. Finishing everything early was great so I was not stressed out last minute, like most of my friends!"
"The most helpful service was the college list and possible majors list. This was the foot in the door that was truly needed. You helped me organize this process much better, making it less stressful as a whole."
"The best part of the process for me was reviewing how to fill out the Common App and UC/Cal State apps and being able to ask questions as they arose for financial aid. Having a contact I could reach when questions (frequently) arose! Thank you so much for everything!"
"It really eased my stress level having someone with experience guide me through the process. Even though applications and decisions are overwhelming at times, the relaxed environment in the meetings and the constant access to help really made it manageable. The personal relationship we formed made it, dare I say, fun for me. I thoroughly enjoyed all of it, especially the essay brainstorm practice and editing process."
"Thank you for working with our daughter. She is extremely excited about her college choice. And 11/12 schools accepted is a good percentage!" (Parent of Performing Arts student)

"Michele is very organized, knowledgeable, great with teens and parents."
"Can't say how much I loved that you kept my son on track. I know he was a unique challenge and we had twice the work with double applications/deadlines just to get a live audition...and to so many schools! Super successful process and thanks for your help!"
"The most helpful part of this process was knowing that I had a list and deadlines printed out so I would not miss anything. Also, if I had questions they were answered!"
"You walk on water as far as myself and husband are concerned. All I wanted for the girls was to have options and not to have to settle.

"You were our leader, advisor, and go-to person. Having you oversee our process eliminated stress, worries, and “conflict”."
"You helped keep it all together! At times, I dropped the ball but you were always there to touch base and reassure me that it was “all good”.

"You helped me so much through the process I couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Also thank you for all the help with getting in contact with track coaches! Your assistance is greatly appreciated!"
"I never had the opportunity to properly thank you for your hard work and dedication to my personal success. Your college counseling has enabled me to reach the higher education that I wished for while also finding a home at a university for the next four years. Thank you for countless meetings we had over the course of the years and making sure I was on track with my studies, activities, SAT/ACT tests, and college searching. You helped me narrow down my college search from all possible colleges and universities to a list of 9! Keep the passion for your work and aiding your kids to find their place and career path just as you did with me! Thank you."
"Such a great experience. Such a weight off of our shoulders. We will be using Michele again for our younger daughter."
"Having someone to guide me through this process of applying to multiple schools was so helpful.

"Wonderful job!! We appreciate all of your hard work, dedication and patience."
"I loved the way that you dealt directly with the student. I know that my daughter would not have been so quick to meet deadlines if it was me encouraging her to get things in on time. She seemed to be very on top of things knowing she was going to meet with you and your expectations of the work you had assigned them. I appreciate all your research and time spent which I didn't have."
"Thank you so much for everything you've done! I would not be attending a four year without you!"
