The College Advisor staff guided us through our first college search and application process.  Before coming in, we felt overwhelmed and confused.  As soon as we began working with the staff, we knew we were headed in the right direction.  Our child felt confident sending in her applications, which resulted in several great school choices.  Thank you so much for all of your help!”

The College Advisor of New York’s process began with the testing of aptitudes and preferences that helped find the right school for our daughter, and then navigate the complex process of SAT Prep and admissions. They even helped us get some merit scholarship money.  It worked well enough for her that we had our two sons also go through the process.  I would not go through this process without their professional guidance – the cost pales in comparison to the cost of college.

“As the long process of applying and choosing a college comes to an end, I wanted to say thank you for all you’ve done. There have been numerous times where I would have stressed over not getting enough financial aid, or not knowing which colleges to visit. However, having your guidance allowed the fun and excitement of the search to outweigh the anxiety. All of the time you spent matching up colleges and advising us on how to deal with aid/scholarship packages is greatly appreciated.  Thank you so much!”

“We wanted to thank you for all your work with us on all three kids. Sean is working his Graphics Design job with an advertising firm in Boston (loved his time with Roger Williams). Jessie is off doing a Master’s program with UC Monterey Bay (for Biology). Mary loves her choice of St. John Fisher. Your oversight of college choices and your staff support through issues and essays was extremely valuable. Thanks again.”

“Ryan loves Clark. It is definitely a great fit for him, as you thought it would be. He has made some very good friends and he completed his first semester with a 3.93 GPA. Sincere thanks again to you and your staff for helping us to get through the process, and a special ‘shout out’ to our Coach for helping Ryan through the essays!”

“We wanted to thank you again for all that you did for Max, he did end up committing to UVM! I’m sure he would not be going there if it was not for your help and the help of Cindy, Prowess, and the rest of your staff. Thank you so much!”

“The most helpful part of your service was guiding Michael to schools we were not familiar with and educating him on the ‘right fit.’ I cannot think of anything you could improve upon. The experience was a pleasure. The overall experience was a 10/10!”

“We did not apply for financial aid, but the amount of merit-based aid she received was astounding. She ended up selecting a school that gave her a $20,000/year scholarship! Thank you so much for suggesting the ‘right’ schools in this way. It has made a big difference financially.”

“Working with The College Advisor of NY proved to be a great experience for my son, Michael, and our family.  With Dean as the ‘driver’ of the admissions process, our family was able to enjoy this time, rather than have it be stressful.”
