It wasn’t me having to constantly question and hassle Emma about what was going on, and it wasn’t me having to review essay after essay. Kim’s (software program) kept everything on target with a to-do list with due dates, a calendar to keep meetings organized, and so many other links to extremely useful information all brought together in one place. Kim is very knowledgeable about countless colleges and not just because she’s researched them, but because she’s actually visited and toured so many campuses across the country. Beyond all of this, the most valuable piece of the pie is that Kim takes the time to truly get to know your student, and when it comes time to choose colleges to apply to, that is extremely important because she’s able to recommend schools that are a good fit. As a parent, I wanted nothing but for my daughter to be successful. Having a good fit school was key to that. There are thousands of colleges and universities out there, and she is able to break them down to ones that are best-fit for your student. Emma applied to 10 schools and ended up choosing Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. It’s a school that I had never heard of before and would never have considered had we not worked with Kim. She is finishing her junior year and absolutely loves it. She is thriving and has made the President’s List every single semester. She’s exactly where she needs to be and she wouldn’t have been there if we hadn’t hired Kim.
Just how valuable was Kim to us? So much so that we hired her again and did the whole thing over with our son, Alex. He started working with her his freshmen year and now he’s a senior. She guided him to get all of his applications in by October 31st and he’d been accepted and decided by Christmas. Because of this, he’s been able to enjoy his senior year without all of the last minute stress that many seniors go through. Also, he’s chosen a school that I never would have considered without her input - Ole Miss!!! Go Rebels!! I could go on and on about how wonderful Kim is and just how valuable her services are. I’ll just finish by letting you know you will never regret your decision to hire her. --Andrea S.
"We knew nothing about the college application process and working with Kim was one of the smartest decisions we have ever made."
We started working with Kim in my daughter's sophomore year. We knew nothing about the college application process and working with Kim was one of the smartest decisions we have ever made. Kim has amazing insight on thousands of colleges and really helped guide our daughter through this very daunting process. Kim communicated directly with our daughter, kept her on task with class selection, testing, essay writing and applications. Kim was able to instill confidence in my daughter that there was the perfect college for her and there was!! My daughter is the extremely happy with her decision and we credit Kim for guiding her toward success! Because of the tremendous experience we had with our older daughter, we are currently using Kim again for our younger daughter.

Much as the use of technology has changed, increased and intensified over the last 25 years, so has the college admission process! When I was in school, the plan was to get excellent grades, choose a couple of in-state schools and apply. Now, grades are only the beginning of being accepted into a great school! Documentation of a commitment to extracurricular activities, great standardized test scores (and how to get them!), choice of high school classes, fantastic essay writing and simply knowing what the best school choice for your child is all play a role in choosing and being accepted to the perfect college for your child! The knowledge that she possesses of hundreds of universities across the country, experience of understanding what universities are looking for in essays and information related to academic aid and scholarships was invaluable! I cannot even begin to imagine how stressful this would have been without working with Kim and having her guide my daughter through this complicated process! --Holly V.
