What They're Saying

"Jill brought sanity and a ray of sunshine to the stressful college admissions process. Her incredible depth and wealth of knowledge about the basics as well as the subtle nuances of the college landscape helped my son develop a list of schools where he could thrive as a student and as a person. She also facilitated the agonizing essay writing task. She helped my son find his voice and perfect his essays. We truly would not have made it through this process without Jill's unparalleled expertise, support and encouragement!"
