My clients’ satisfaction is my greatest reward, and I’m proud of the positive feedback I receive from them. After all the hard work that my students and I do, it’s incredibly rewarding to see the admissions decisions roll in. My clients trust me and value my insight into admissions strategy, and in many cases, I’ve counseled multiple siblings—a reflection of the confidence that families have in my work.
Marcia is the bomb! She is just the right mix of personal and professional, as both are required when it comes to planning for your child’s education and future. Her intuitiveness allowed us to consider higher learning options we may have otherwise been unaware of. Thank you, Marcia, for being an instrumental part of a life-impacting journey!
Our son is graduating from college this year. He turned a corner after a fraught, touch-and-go first year at his school, opened himself up to the experience, made good friends and built cherished relationships with teachers and staff. We wanted to thank you for guiding us and helping him get there.
Our son graduated from his college with a 3.68 grade point average. So, last week I gave away The Fiske Guide to Colleges, The Princeton Review, and How to Write a College Essay, as well as notes from his dean at his first school. Reading those, I could feel my stomach do those same flips it did three years ago. God, what an awful feeling…like the car careening out of control and the brakes don’t work.
Later in the week I noticed my e-mail folder titled ‘college.’ Your name popped up and immediately I remembered our first conversation, where you were so direct with me: ‘If he says he is drinking x amount, he is doing more.’ I so connected with your frank and clear manner. It was what was needed, it is what I understand best and, I knew that my son would find it grounding.
This is all to say, again, thank you so much. You scooped us up and told us it would be okay. We will always be grateful.
Marcia’s calm and focused manner allowed our son to take ownership of his applications. He worked with Marcia and her team on them for many months. I was confident that he was on task and getting things accomplished, which made our house a calmer place. No nagging from Mom! In the end, he was accepted to his #1 school!
Marcia has a vast knowledge of colleges and universities, and she is constantly revisiting and updating her portfolio. Her demeanor is pleasant, patient, and direct, and she takes the time to listen to your child’s interests and get an understanding of individual class grades and extracurricular activities. With all these in mind, she suggests a variety of schools. Marcia’s patience and knowledge of the application process has been invaluable to our family and saved us from late-night stress and many squabbles. She cares about your child’s best interests and takes the work seriously. Marcia is a godsend and we are looking forward to working with her again with our son.
Thank you for helping me get into Ithaca. It’s been a long journey and you’ve stuck with me and supported me the whole time. I’ve been so nervous, but with your help I got into my dream school with a scholarship! I can never thank you enough.
Thank you for everything you have done for the past six months. You have been an incredible support system for me, and I wouldn’t be where I am today without your advice, care, generosity, and assistance.
