“My husband and I appreciate what you’ve done for our daughter. The journey of the college application process has been great for her. She has begun to learn how to set a goal and try her best to achieve it. As parents we also learned more about her by watching her on the way to college. I believe the skills and knowledge she learned from you will help her to complete her undergraduate study.”

— B. Jiang, daughter accepted to University of California, San Diego 2020

“I have always wanted to apply to top colleges, but there’s a big difference between dreams and taking action, and I want to thank you for the suggestions and support. Reviewing essays with you has reduced a lot of my anxiety and self-doubt, and it most definitely helped me in successfully submitting my applications.”

— Jessica, accepted to McGill University 2018
