"Emily is a life changer! From encouraging big ideas to making dreams come true, Emily guided me through every phase of the application and admissions process. She helped me realize a dream that I didn't know I had, and I wouldn't be where I am today without her."
- Eli, student
"Thank you so much for helping me through so far the toughest and scariest year of my life, Debra - and making sure that I made it to the big leagues - a place where I'll at last get to take a ‘giant leap’ into what I love."
- Owen, student
As I sit on a plane headed home from Tulane orientation, I wanted to express how grateful I am that you were there for me throughout the college process, Jodi. You helped make applying to college as stress free as possible and your honesty helped ensure I was showing colleges my best self. I loved knowing I wasn't in this alone.

"One year ago, I never imagined that I would be where I am today--specifically at the front steps of a Stanford experience. I have yet to begin it, but my family and I would like to thank you Rachel for all you have done as I prepare to head for Palo Alto."
- Mingqian, Student
"Thanks to your brilliant advice Jodi, I am officially a member of the Vanderbilt class of 2014! I can't thank you enough for all of your help."
- Connor, student
"Yes, I have great news! I got into my number one school, Chapman as well as all the other schools to which I applied. I owe almost all of it to your helping me Jodi. I honestly believe your help did so much for me and influenced the acceptances from my favorite colleges."
- Kira, student
I have to thank you for the privilege of how I get to spend my next four years, and my opportunities after that. I didn’t make anything easy, but you somehow still managed to push me ahead, putting me in a place where I finished all my college searching, essays and applications far sooner and with greater quality than the rest of my classmates. I was introduced to colleges I had never heard of, I was given access to professional-level editing and any questions I had was always answered. Thank you so much for what you have done for me.
"It was so wonderful to have Debra work with our son. Her individual approach, dedication and support thorough the whole process, was incredibly helpful. She was available every step of the way, making what can be a pretty overwhelming process so much easier. We now have a very happy freshman--thank you! "
- Maritza, parent
"Our daughter applied to three excellent schools with high entrance expectations. Not only was she accepted to all three, but they all made substantial merit-scholarship offers. Through your essay coaching Alaina learned writing tips that will help her throughout college. I look forward to working with you again Jodi, when our other daughter is ready to apply to the colleges of her choice."
- Tim, parent
Nicholas left for school this morning with his Junior Paper completed on time. More importantly, he shared with me last night that he really enjoyed the process. Rachel, you are the reason for the breakthrough! I cannot thank you enough! You truly delivered above and beyond all my expectations.
- Patricia McDonald, parent
"We could tell Emily cared about our son and his future. She learned who our son was, what his needs and likes were. She’s a kind person who will treat your child like her own. She found the perfect school for our son, one we had never heard about. When people ask, “How did your son find Gettysburg College, I tell them about Emily and sing her praises."
- Carolyn, parent
Abby, I have LOVED being able to hand over the reins on this and let your services guide Ethan through the process. I have felt that the communication has been just right for me as in - if I needed to know, I did. Thank you!
- Susan, parent
Robin, thanks so much for your great work with Julia in her college application process. It was ideal, for all of us, to have you working step-by-step with her during this stressful time. We very much appreciate how open you were to our being involved – to whatever level felt right. We knew she was getting great advice and never felt left out of this important journey.
As we thought back on the process there were so many ways that you guided Sammy, and we are very appreciative, Jodi. You advised he take the ACT and take it early. You suggested App Camp and tutoring. All this allowed him to get his best score early and not stress. You kept asking him about his interests and focused his applications. From creating a personal website to essays, you guided him to present his best self. We feel very lucky to have had your guidance.

I am the father of twin girls who just had Debra as their college coach. I also have an older daughter who was not fortunate enough to have this amazing service simply because I did not know about it. In the last year, I saw my daughters transformed as they were gently and mindfully led by Debra through the college application process. With Debra's recommendation they applied to approximately seven colleges and were both accepted at great colleges of their choice. We could not have achieved these results without Debra's help. I highly recommend having her by your side.
