Why Get Help With College Admissions

Applying to college is very different from what it was 20 years ago. There are more choices, more requirements, more deadlines, and a lot more stress.

It’s helpful to have someone knowledgeable guide you. There are no easy tricks to getting into your top choice, but there are effective strategies. There are also plenty of mistakes to be avoided.

One of the first tasks is to select a school that is a terrific fit for you. Then write an interesting, personal essay and present yourself in the best light. That’s what I’m here to help you accomplish.


What Clients Say About Their Experience

"Sarah was an instrumental part of my college application process. Her advice was invaluable. I cannot recommend her enough, no matter what part of the college application process you are struggling with."
--Zane, Claremont McKenna College

"For students, like ours, who face the blank spaces of the Common App’s extra-cirricular activities list with trepidation, Sarah is a god-send. Her wide-ranging understanding of the process, her organizational skills, and her kind, calm demeanor put our student (and us!) at ease. We were grateful for her experience assisting a wide range of students, not just those academic superstars; she brings out the best in all of our kids!"
--Marriott, Parent

"When I wrote my college essays, Sarah was enormously helpful. She encouraged me to write about who I was, not who I wanted colleges to think I was. She was hardworking, honest, and completely invested in my success — without her help, I very well could not be where I am today."
--Josh, Stanford University
