In the words of our students and their families, educators, and colleagues….

I can't think of a more qualified person to recommend to any parent of a prospective college student. Gail is a credible expert who guides with confidence and kindness. She is a pro in every sense of the word." 
Brother Tom Fahy, former Principal, Chaminade College Preparatory School
Thank you so much for helping me with the college admissions process. I got into my dream school and I know that it wouldn’t have been possible without your help."
Gina, high school senior
Thank you for another great issue. I have begun to send this out to my network of "people" in and around my area as a marketing tool. A lot of them have written back to say how awesome the newsletter is and that it's quite useful. So, I wanted you to know how grateful I am and that I'm glad I subscribe! You make me look good!"
Educational Consultant, New York
I started receiving the newsletter March of 2007. Will you automatically bill me in February? I just don’t want to miss a beat! It is a tremendous tool and saves me an incredible amount of time (to think I spent 5 years writing my own!)"
Educational Consultant, Virginia
I feel much more knowledgeable and prepared for the process—it’s still daunting, but it is IMMENSELY helpful to have this info. It is so important to know many of the things we discussed so that we can prepare now, rather than being caught without the best application package later on."
