Darcy made the process easy and less stressful. She helped Shannon to really evaluate the colleges she was looking at and to apply to ones that would accept her. She applied to 12 schools and got into 11 with the twelfth offering her an alternative option for admission.

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with Mrs. Hoberman and Collegewise. We explored many colleges that I had never even heard of before, and because of her, I found a school that is truly fitting for me. And, with all of the advice and guidance I received, my application was solid enough for me to get accepted. I am a very proud Thoroughbred.
Darcy took away the stress and made the application process enjoyable for us. We had the confidence that our daughter was looking at the correct schools based on Darcy's experience, research, and input. Our daughter wouldn't listen to us, but she did listen to Darcy! She made the process transparent, and was always available if we had questions or concerns.
TONI, PARENT OF LILY
Darcy is fantastic! Our experience has been wonderful and we would highly recommend her to anyone beginning the college search and application process. Darcy is extremely knowledgeable and laid out a plan that my son could follow. She provided exactly what both my son and I needed. One of the many things that I appreciate about Darcy is her direct approach and efficiency. I highly recommend Darcy without reservation!
JOYCE, PARENT OF ETHAN
Collegewise took the worry and stress out of an overwhelming college application process and provided our daughter with a high level of professional guidance. Darcy was an incredible coach for our daughter! Her insights and recommendations were honest and spot-on. Darcy made us feel that our daughter was genuinely cared about, unique, and special.

Working with Darcy provided me with so much peace of mind. I knew that it would be difficult to keep track of all of the deadlines while applying to many schools. Darcy kept my son on track so that he felt it was all manageable. Having two other people proofread his essays also allowed me to have some distance from the whole process.
KAREN, PARENT OF NOAH
Darcy has a master’s degree in school counseling from The George Washington University and several years of experience as a college counselor, school counselor, teacher, counseling program director, and even as an ACT and SAT tutor. Through Darcy’s employment and studies, she has gained in-depth knowledge of the college application and acceptance process, career and personal counseling, human development, guidance, management, program development, and communication. She also possesses exceptional writing skills. Darcy truly feels that she has found in college counseling what she loves to do, and now that she is a part of Collegewise in San Antonio, she has also found the place where she loves to do it.
Philosophically, Darcy does not feel that every student fits into a single mold, and she believes that there are wonderful schools out there with unique attributes and personalities. The pleasure of her work at Collegewise is in matching her students with these schools. Ultimately, this leads to better admissions and scholarship outcomes while also simply creating a more joyful experience.
