Keep College Simple

Senior year is an emotional time for the student and parents. My senior didn’t really want to hear advice from me regarding college applications and honestly, I didn’t want or know what advice to give. We were both basically procrastinating and dreading the process - until he met with Erica. She took time to ask him questions and really understand his personality and goals. She helped him select a great range of schools to apply to and after several productive sessions with her, he was done! He grew in independence and felt great about his applications. Erica’s help with the entire process saved us hours of time and struggle. She communicated wonderfully with both my senior and myself. We are forever thankful for her making this process enjoyable rather than stressful.

She was extremely helpful by answering any questions I had. She also gave great advice and edited my essays including my Common App and my small question essays. When Covid hit, I had no one to answer my specific questions about my school but thankfully I had Erica there to answer everything. If you’re looking for someone to help during the college application process she’s the perfect person! PS. She’s also an amazing person to hang out with and will support you through the process!

Meeting with Erica was the best decision I could’ve made while applying to college.

My family loves Laura!! My son was fortunate to have had Laura as his Counselor starting in his Freshman year and going through his Junior year. I really feel like he was so fortunate to have had her in his corner—not only for issues related to school, but also issues at home and for college planning.   On top of a family medical emergency, add to this, the stress of applying to college!! Laura was there to help guide us all through this difficult process. She helped with testing recommendations, letters of recommendation and how we can help at home. And she ALWAYS responded to my emails.  Laura is a very caring and responsive person. She is definitely the right person to help guide a young person during these difficult times. I heartily recommend Laura as someone a college-bound student can talk to and get guidance from. You will be glad to have her in your corner!! 

Laura was very helpful and responsive and made time to meet with us regularly.
 She was a huge comfort to us all.
