What our students (and parents!) say

Parents are on a journey too, and Monica was our perfect guide. She always kept us in the loop, helped us join in where appropriate, and answered every emailed question with insights, humor, and calm. I can’t tell you how many times a discussion at our house would end with, “Let’s ask Monica!”
— -Lynn, Parent of Scott, Purdue University
Monica really made every meeting really engaging and fun to go to, even if it was just entering numbers into my applications. She helped me a little with school essays and job applications too, which was incredible. Thank you for everything you’ve done for me. :)
— Student, Class of 2018
Monica was very sweet, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic, which helped my daughter as we went through this stressful process.
— Negin, Parent of Shereen, UCSD
Before starting, I only had one college in mind. I didn’t have a backup plan or an idea of what I had to do to actually get in to my dream school. Since coming here, Monica has helped me narrow down what type of college I want to go to, how far I’d be willing to go, and realistically what the best options for me would be. She helped me stay on track with all of my deadlines and I got every application in with significant time to spare.
— Palavi, UC Davis
I found the brainstorming sessions to be helpful, and I appreciated the freedom given to me when I was writing the essays.
— Student, Class of 2017
Monica was outstanding at guiding me through the unbelievably complicated application process. Moreover, Monica was exceedingly upbeat, funny, energetic and happy through it all (she has many entertaining jokes!) I would without a doubt recommend Monica to any student who is looking for a college counselor to guide them through this journey.
— Abe, University of Miami
