WHAT OTHERS HAVE SAID ABOUT US

“The reason why this service was so helpful is because Dr. Cook worked to develop a personal relationship with me so that the sessions spent working on my applications and planning my future were more relaxed. While working with Dr. Cook, I gradually became less anxious about the process, which helped me to produce my applications calmly and to the best of my abilities.”


Shreyas, College Admissions Consultation

“Dr. Cook encouraged our son to start keeping a list of his accomplishments. This was so valuable when it was time for him to develop a resume. Her guidance is practical and realistic. She relates extremely well to both parents and teens. We look forward to her help with all three of our children’s college search.”


Rob, Academic Planning

“As a mom, I wanted to help my own sons navigate their journeys in selecting the right fit college. But I understood that this was a journey my sons needed to set as their own and I realized it was deeply important that someone equally invested in their success, yet outside of the family, listen and allow my sons to help set their own course, while providing experienced guidance. ”


Kelley, College Admissions Consultation

The membership plans are designed for students. The tools within are specially designed to help cut through all of the information that is needed to find the best fit and get accepted.

Beginning as early as possible is recommended. With the system overall, it’s helpful to begin the process during the student’s junior year of high school to ensure that there is enough time to get assignments done and get everything polished for admissions applications.

The membership materials are a resource for both parents and students. Some information is going to be relevant to the student, but it’s also helpful for parents to get some insights about the process. This will help parents as they assist their students in navigating this process, providing an extra source of accountability and direction.

Absolutely. As things change in the process, we will be updating the videos, blogs, forum information and handouts in accordance with how things change in the real world. Nothing is static, which is a huge reason why we are here to begin with.

The duration of your membership will depend a great deal on several variables. Most notably, it will vary by your grade and how much you’ve already done in your college search. Some people will choose to move through the membership materials very quickly, while others may use them across many years. You will be able to choose how long you maintain your membership once you sign up. Most users expect to maintain their membership for at least a couple months.
