TESTIMONIAL

"Words cannot express how grateful we are to Janice. We had used another consultant when my son graduated 2 years ago and the difference is unbelievable. Our very first meeting was so informative and productive. We left her feeling excited about the opportunities and not feeling overwhelmed. She took the time to get to know our daughter and what she would like in a college. She researched Linsey’s major and found a list of the best colleges for that major but also colleges that fit her needs personally. Having Janice take my daughter step by step through the process alleviated all of the stress and anxiety. My daughter knew what needed to be done and when it needed to be done by. She helped with her Resume, letter of recommendation requests, helped prepare everything needed for the applications, provided so many resources, and even sent her texts the morning of her ACT/SAT testing encouraging her. She truly cares for her clients and works endlessly to help them achieve their goals.

By December, my daughter had already received acceptance letters to her top choice schools. Now my daughter can enjoy the rest of her senior year already knowing where she will attend in the fall. We couldn’t be happier."
