Testimonials from Parents and Students

From a Student, Class of 2017

“I got into Rice! I also got the Trustee Distinguished Scholarship and was named a Century Scholar. Thank you so much for your guidance through the entire process. I couldn’t have done it without you. Thanks to you, I am a future owl! So, glad we got connected!!”

Senior in Houston, Class of 2017

“I was so overwhelmed about how to start my college essay. Sarah helped me brainstorm topics, provided me with great edits, and made me feel much more confident about my story.  It was such a huge help having her to text or email questions to and to help me put my best foot forward.  I am so excited to be going to my dream school, Tulane!” 

Parent of a Freshman in Houston

“Sarah has made the whole college process stress-free and enjoyable for the whole family. It has been such a relief to not have to nag our daughter about her applications! Sarah exposed us to a wide range of colleges and helped us keep an open mind. We are very grateful with the process and our daughter couldn’t be happier at her school.”

Parent of a Freshman in California

“In the end, I am happy to say that I am a proud parent of a UC Davis freshman, class of 2021! Thank you for all your help through the entire process. It really made it easy for me to stay out of it which was most important. I can be a nudge and I didn’t have to worry about a thing. Stay tuned for my younger son in four years!”

From a Student, Class of 2017

“With her outstanding knowledge and connections to people at multiple schools, Sarah was able to recommend to me many colleges that fit my criteria and interests.  Sarah sat down with me to discuss the pros/cons of each school on my list. She also pushed me to reach higher. She was there with me through the whole process from choosing my colleges to final edits before I pressed send.  Sarah helped me put my best possible face forward.  The most helpful thing Sarah did was critique my essays, as this is the one chance to show the college who you are. Sarah helped me think about what is most important to me in my life and how to highlight these themes in my essays. Her input was incredible and made all the difference in the world without at all taking away my originality. Once revisited, if I were to look at the first draft compared to the final, it was like looking at a sketch and then a masterpiece.  Sarah wants to see all her students succeed. She knows so much about the college process and has so many resources that she will use to your benefit. With Sarah’s help, I was accepted to five out of six colleges on my list.”
