Introduction: There's no denying it: the pandemic has turned the college application process on its head. What has always been a confusing process for families, now has extra challenges thanks to both the pandemic and the decision many colleges have made to drop the standardized tests as a requirement. Let us help you navigate the process. We are a small education consulting company made up of three professors, college consultants, and industry professionals who has over 10 years of experience with student writing, college admissions, and knowing what graders for standardized tests look for in essays for the SAT, ACT, GRE and TOEFL exams. Our education backgrounds include Emory University, Columbia University, the University of California Santa Barbara and the University of Virginia. We enjoy helping students obtain their academic goals, and when they realize that their hard work and dedication is helping them achieve what they've set out to do. Our goal is to help all students who need it at a fair price point that is accessible to all families. We use transparent hourly billing and will never ask you to pay for more services than you need. For the 2020-2021 cycle we have had students get admitted to such schools as:* Harvard (graduate program), UPenn (graduate program), UMichigan (Ross and graduate program), Texas A&M (BSMD program with scholarship), Cornell University, Boston College, Boston University, Emory University William and Mary, University of Texas at Austin, University of Florida (Honors), Villanova University, Georgia Tech, Emerson College, Northeastern University, Clemon University (nursing), USF (honors + medical honors program), Florida Atlantic University (honors), University of Central Florida (Honors, Lead Scholars, Medical Honors with scholarship), Nova Southeastern (BSMD program & Premier Program with scholarship), University of Georgia. *particularly competitive/desirable majors or programs are noted. Please contact us for a comprehensive list of all schools.

College Admissions Counseling

We looked at a lot of options online to get a help for my son’s college admission essays. There are so many professionals who charge obnoxious rates. We are glad that we found Jill. She is very professional and offered guidance at a reasonable price. My son is very happy about her help on his college admission essays.

Jill was excellent! She immediately connected with my daughter and helped her get on track with her college application essays. Great energy and enthusiasm. As a customer I felt she was not aggressive in her sales pitch, just asked questions and got right to it.

College Admissions Counseling

I was really impressed with Jill's professionalism and knowledge of the college application process. Things have changed so much since I was applying for college, and having someone navigate us through the process, providing a third party neutral position, is incredibly helpful.

Jill was a God send. We were incredibly lucky to have had her help throughout this crazy process. This was a particularly competitive year. Applications were through the roof with so many kids taking shots at schools an SAT score would have otherwise rendered out of reach, and others applying after having taken a gap year due to the pandemic. Jill was incredibly helpful in brainstorming, guiding and critiquing the essays so that they spoke to what admissions committees look for. She thoroughly and thoughtfully answered all of our questions, assisted with what other schools our daughter might apply to, and in the end, weighing the options as the decisions began rolling in. We are grateful to have found her and will always appreciate the important role she played in assisting our daughter become the success that she is and will continue to be.

Jill is a skilled professional that helped our daughter with her Merit Scholarship essay. Our daughter enjoyed working with her and was delighted with her help. Jill was very responsive as a strategist helping to frame the narrative in ways we feel were great. She showed sincere interest in making the essay better and my daughter was happy collaborating with her.
