The Right School

The Right School

Many of the students and families we work with stay in touch with us over the years.  It is so much fun for us when we continue to hear what the students we work with are accomplishing while in college and after they graduate.  While Lisa has written us a review before, we received the following verbatim unsolicited update on her daughter Jamie in the mail along with her graduation announcement.

As with most of the students we work with, we couldn’t be more proud of each and all that they have achieved!

Dear Emily,

Another success story to add to your list!  It seems like ‘forever ago’ when Jamie and I came to your office for college consulting.  I am so thankful your guidance lead us to Emerson College. It has been the right school for Jamie and the teachers played a large part in Jamie’s ability to reach her graduation goal. She will graduate from “Writing, Literature, and Publishing” with a BFA (she even did an additional 50 pg written work to get the BFA!) – the graduation is this Sunday 5/14 – Mother’s Day, which gives me the most special mother’s day of all!

Best Regards and Take Care,

Love,

Lisa and Jamie, of course!!

Truly Appreciate

I wanted to thank you and Kim for all the guidance and input you provided as you worked with our son through the last 8 months. We truly appreciate it. It had been especially helpful as he worked through his college essays. We have had several friends approach us for recommendations about college counselors and we have provided your name to them.

Thank you, Emily, for all you have done to help Kevin during this critical college search period. He (and we!) are very excited for him and feel that he has made an excellent decision with all of the right criteria in mind.  We look forward to continuing to stay in touch in the coming months and again are grateful to you for all your assistance and thoughtful support.

First College, Then a Summer Writing Program

First College, Then a Summer Writing Program

It doesn’t give Emily and Kim enough credit to say that they worked with Hannah on her college applications. They did so much more – from helping Hannah feel like she took control of the daunting college entrance process to guiding her on which colleges she should apply to and then working with her on the applications–Emily and Kim made the process so much more productive and far less stressful than if we did it on our own. Hannah is now at Pitt (her first choice) and could not be happier. We were so impressed with Know Your Options that we hired Emily and Kim again to help Hannah find a summer overseas writing workshop this summer. Another great experience working with them and Hannah is off to Scotland in a few months for a five week writing course.
