“I want to say thank you for all that you did for me this past year from the bottom of my heart. Not only are you simply amazing at the technical aspects of your job, you also gave me so many spiritual gifts. Our meetings always served as a mid-week pick me up; you never failed to leave me feeling motivated and grateful for your advice. Above all else, you believed in me. You convinced me that my writing was worthy and that my application was something to be proud of. Because of you I got to open that Princeton portal and experience one of the most wonderful moments of my life. Thank you for always being there, always believing in me, and for being such a woman of character.

You truly inspire me.

I cannot put into words the gratitude

I have for all you did for me.”

“I am so grateful that I was able to have your help on this journey to college. Thank you so much for your advice and guidance; I truly don’t think I would have been able to be so successful in the application process without it. I’m very excited to begin this new path in life and you did so much to help me get there.

Thank you!”

- JM, parent, Washington University in St. Louis

“Thank you so much for being an amazing college counselor and helping me so much these past years! I really couldn’t have done it without you. A year ago I would have been surprised to find out I would be attending University of Chicago, a school I knew next to nothing about. But now I’m counting down the months until I attend a school I know is the perfect fit. Thank you for your endless support, especially as I sent numerous frantic emails about small things. I appreciate all you’ve done, from research to helping me with essays that took months to write.”

CS, student, University of Chicago

“Thank you so much for all you did for our son and our family. Thanks for the countless replies to my panicky emails. You were always patient and effective in answering my questions. Thanks for preparing him so well that he ended up with really amazing options. He couldn’t have done it without you!
I’ll always be thankful.”
- CS, parent, University of Michigan

“We can’t thank you enough for your sound advice and guidance through our first college application process. Thanks to you, we developed a plan very early, identified schools and executed your strategy with GREAT success. We couldn’t be happier! We remain ever grateful for your help, support, and most importantly, your belief in our daughter.”
- SZ, parent, Elon University

“Thank you so much for all of your extra effort and work on my behalf. It kept me sane during that time and probably saved my relationship with my mom. Also, Colby is so perfect for me and I am so happy here. I know I wouldn’t have found it – or even known what type of school I was looking for – without you. Thank you for being so much more than just a college advisor.”

LC, student, Colby College

“I wanted to thank you for the guidance and support you offered our family! Helping our daughter navigate the many deadlines and requirements, while providing a clear path, you were a calming force throughout this typically stressful time of life. I feel fortunate she was able to work with you and end up at a school she is so excited to attend.”
- LS, parent, University of Chicago

“We can't begin to describe our gratitude for all that you did to support our daughter through the college process. Your wisdom and expertise were invaluable in a completely upside down year of admissions. It was amazing to watch her progress without having to poke and prodder to get things done.

She is thrilled about her acceptance to NYU! Thank you for helping her find her way to this wonderful institution. You are amazing!”

AA, parent, NYU

“I wanted to say thank you for all your help in the college applications process. It made all the difference in the world and I'm so grateful. You pushed me to do things ahead of time and made sure I was always doing my best. Because of you, the whole process was so much less stressful. I miss our weekly meetings and will definitely stay in touch. Thank you so much for everything!”

- ZH, student, Tulane University

“I wanted to thank you one last time for all you have done for me over the past few years. I’m incredibly grateful for your tremendous help in navigating the college process and making things easier on me. What normally is a stressful time for kids my age was made easy by your organization and communication.”

MS, student, Harvard University

“Believe me when I say that using a professional like Heidi for the college admissions process is the one most important thing you can do for your child. I HIGHLY recommend Heidi. 

Her organizational skills, attention to detail, and communication with my daughter could not have been better, and I felt completely at ease knowing that she was in control.”
- KG, parent, University of Texas

“The college admissions process is an intimidating one. Heidi, however, broke it down in a way that made me feel in control of my future rather than like it was too much to handle. From making my college list through my final decision, Heidi lent a supportive voice and helpful hand. Her personal approach to the application process made me feel confident that the colleges I applied to got to know me through my application, not anybody else. With such assurance, I knew that I would be happy to attend any school that I was admitted to.”
- MH, student, Northwestern University

“You are amazing. I could not have done it without you. Thank you so much for everything. I am so excited.”
- DT, student, Southern Oregon University

“Thank you for the calm you have brought to my home, the kindness you have shared with us all, and the future you have helped pave for A. Your guidance was invaluable.”

VW, parent, Marist College

“Thank you so much for helping me perfect the college application process. My apps would not have been half as good without your guidance. I’m 100% certain my acceptance to St Andrews was because of your help. Thinking back over how much work we did, I can’t imagine doing it without you.”
- DE, student, University of St Andrews

“I just wanted to thank you for the help you gave me in the college admissions process. You introduced me to Swarthmore, a school I would not have thought of on my own, and it ended up being a perfect match. 

I am going there next fall and I am so unbelievably happy and ecstatic.”

- MF, student, Swarthmore College

“I wanted to say thank you so much for your help throughout the whole year with the college admissions process! You were always there to give me information and to help me with my essays and I am very, very grateful. You were there whenever I needed you. I couldn’t have done it without your help.”
- JC, student, McGill University

“Thank you so much for your excellent guidance through this whole process. You have truly been invaluable. I’m so glad that I have you to help with our second child now! We couldn’t have done it without you.”

AP, parent, UCLA

“How do we begin to thank you? What began five years ago as an informational interview has resulted in three successful college application processes for our three children. For that we are eternally grateful. 

Your fabulous process sets you apart in a few particular areas.

Your online program could not be better. There are so many loose ends throughout this undertaking and to have all communication and resources in one portal is fantastic.

You hold the bar high and we very much appreciate this. Sometimes it's hard as parents to ask our kids to do things and have them actually listen and take action. You do a nice job of pushing them in all areas - take the most and hardest classes you can, embrace extracurricular activities that are national in scope, be unique and true to themselves, create and lead programs that have growth opportunities and meaning, and take their standardized tests until they have reached their highest potential. 

Your consistency in messaging, communication, and overall college mentoring is outstanding. Week to week, our kids knew exactly what needed to be done and when. There were no last minute scrambles to submit applications, which added unexpected peace.

Your guidance on essay writing was excellent. Each of our kids actually became better writers, from the essay structure, editing and revision process you provide.

Beyond your formula, attention to detail and vast knowledge of the college process, you were a trusted advisor at every turn. Each of our kids demonstrated a comfortable relationship with you. They never hesitated to reach out and you always responded promptly.

Attending a 4-year college is just the next step in our kids' journey, but what they learned from you are valuable lessons that will support them through their college years and beyond.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.”

- DW, parent, University of Michigan, Vanderbilt University, and Vanderbilt University

“We cannot thank you enough for the tireless support and guidance you gave our son. I have no words for how grateful and appreciative I am for the ease your expert counseling made this process.”

DG, parent, University of San Diego

“Thank you for everything you have done these past two years. I don’t think I would be heading to my dream school if it weren’t for you, so thank you again and again! ”
- SB, student, University of Richmond

“Heidi was not only an invaluable resource to our son in helping him through the process, but was also incredibly available and helpful for us – the parents.”

DF, parent, Tufts University

“I do not think I could thank you enough for everything you have done for me. I honestly do not think I would be going to college without your help. Thank you so much for keeping me on track, organized and so ahead of the game. You were such an amazing help in this crazy, hectic process.”

- AW, student, Marist College

“I wanted to tell you how much my husband and I appreciated and valued all of the work you did with M. She felt so comfortable with you and also supported and heard and the process was dramatically improved by your being her mentor through it.

You provide an incredible service to kids in a wonderful way that lets them find themselves but with guidance and care.”

- LS, parent, University of Southern California

“OMG you are the best! Both our daughters got into their dream schools. You tempered our expectations and delivered. You motivated and inspired these girls. Thank you!”
- SG, parent, Princeton University and Southern Methodist University

“Heidi made the difference between my daughter going to a convenient, easily accessible school and her going to the right school. The college application process is so daunting that we were both ready to just focus on the easiest schools to apply to.

Instead, she applied to a dozen schools and even landed her top choice. We are forever in your debt. After all, you helped launch her future!”

- ATG, parent, Oberlin College
