Not So Common Application Services Success Stories

I have been helping students gain admissions to their dream colleges for over 20 years. What I love most about what I do is knowing how much I helped. I get amazing feedback from the students and parents I have the pleasure of working with. My goal is to help students identify and realize dreams they couldn’t imagine before! Whether you are worried about the SATs, college interviews, admission essays or the entire college application process in general, I am here to help ease students’ anxiety and make sure they get into the college of their choice. Here are some of my favorite success stories:

“My son had Carolyn as an SAT tutor. She taught him the strategies needed to improve his score by over 200 points, ensuring his placement in his desired school, and earning him an academic scholarship of a third of the tuition! Highly recommend!”-Colleen Stryker, NY

“I got into Rice, William and Mary and Stony Brook. Going to Rice. Thank you so much and I am very grateful for all your help. You kept me organized and helped this chemistry student write superb essays.”-Aaron C.

“Just got into Cooper Union! I’m so happy with the way you helped me develop my essays and put the application together. This would not have been possible without your help.”-E.M. , NY

“I know Evan has told you he was accepted to The Cooper Union! He is thrilled and excited for his future. As a parent, it is a gift to know he is going forward in his studies to an institution that he has been striving to attend because it is where he feels he will flourish academically and socially. I want to thank you for your hard work and dedication. Your support meant a great deal to our family. Thank you so much.”-Kathy

“Molly is living her best life at Notre Dame! She couldn’t have done it without you!”-CF, Rockville Centre, NY

“I was not even thinking of applying to Cornell – and thanks to your support, I am living on campus – attending class in person – for almost nothing. I can’t imagine a better place to study engineering. Thank you!”-Lauren, Brielle, NJ

“Carolyn’s insight and perspective in the college application process is relevant, valuable, and right on target. Her caring, non-judgmental demeanor with the applicants is refreshing. She is available practically on-call. I highly recommend Carolyn for both test prep, essay/supplemental question editing and strategy and general application counseling.”-Delia Serrano

These are just a few of many amazing reviews from families I have assisted during what can sometimes be a stressful time. I can’t thank them enough for their kind words and lovely feedback. Every student has the potential to flourish and make their dreams come true. I am here to help them realize that the application process can be smooth and even exciting. Let’s work together for a brighter future!
