The guidance that I received from Know Your Options was completely invaluable. I had absolutely no idea how I was going to get through the college process. Emily’s incredible knowledge of not only the whole process in general, but also the specific admissions statistics, tendencies, and attitudes of the colleges that I was looking into made me feel assured that I was in the right place for college counseling. She was encouraging and realistic with me about my options and helped me find the schools that were the best fit for me, where I could be happy and thrive. I was provided amazing support through every part of the process, and I know that I will never forget my experience with Know Your Options. Now, almost a year after receiving my acceptance letter from the school of my dreams, I could not possibly be happier with where I am, and I know that I could never have gotten here without the advice and counsel of Emily and Know Your Options.

I was hesitant and rusty applying to law school after being out of undergrad & my Master’s for a couple years. Kim was wonderful at helping me determine if it was the right decision based on my interests and career goals. We first spoke about my motivations, what I could expect with the application process, and how best to prepare for the whole process. She was great at encouraging me to stick to a timeline that covered all aspects and not leave any one item until the end. All of my emails and questions were responded to thoughtfully and quickly. When it came time to review my personal statements, her input was invaluable. She really took the time to read through and explain to me how and why to change certain areas that not only improved my letters, but also my writing in general. The insight they provided into the whole process and how applications/applicants are viewed was incredibly helpful. I know that I wouldn’t have made it through as successfully as I did without their help.
