What are people saying about Collegewise Detroit?
From the first meeting with Eva, we felt as if we were in safe hands. Eva's advice was invaluable. She took the time to get to know our daughter - she seemed to connect with her very quickly and understood the sort of school that would be a good fit. Eva took much of the stress out of an overwhelming amount of information.

This woman changed my life. The time of college decisions is one of mental pressure a student has never seen before. Eva was really there for me. She was there to reassure me that I was capable of performing regardless of where I went to school. Acceptances came in, and I wouldn't have gotten though it without Eva.
Eva was a tremendous help in the college application process. She guided us through the selection of colleges to apply to and though the final decision. We could not have been happier with the result.

Eva is amazing! My family and I are so thankful to have had her help along our college application process, and I could not have done it without her.
Eva is the perfect blend of thoughtful, organized, fun, savvy, creative, honest, really nice and super smart. She kept the process on track, yet was also conscientious about keeping everything in proper perspective and low stress for my daughter. Eva was so great for my first child (and me!), I've also hired her for my two younger children. Her insight and perspective are indispensable.
Carolyn Capone, Parent of Siena Capone
Eva did a great job helping my son highlight his strengths and making sure his application and essays truly reflected who he is. He applied to some difficult schools/programs and she was DEFINITELY instrumental in his successful results.
