I love Collegewise! You saved my mind and my relationship with my son...and he got into every school he applied to! Which means he picked the right choices for him and presented himself in the best way...thanks to you Collegewise.

Elizabeth Bader, Parent of Jack Fahey, San Diego State University

I had a wonderful experience with Collegewise!

Megan LeGresley, UCLA

I honestly believe that without the help and support of my Collegewise counselor, I would not have been as prepared or as confident as I was when applying to college. I owe a lot of my success to Collegewise and cannot thank them enough.

Thafir Elzofri, Wesleyan University

We could not be more satisfied with our experience at Collegewise and will be signing up our younger daughter for a repeat performance.

Gordon Seabury, Parent of Hannah Seabury, Middlebury College

I would recommend Collegewise to anyone and everyone. This was by far the best investment we made during our son's high school years. We have now started our second son in the program.

Cezie Jolas, Parent of Michael Jolas, Indiana University

Collegewise provides superior resources that are essential to your child's college decision, and there is no better way to prepare (and then guide) your student in the college selection process.

Mary Beth Thornton, Parent of Emma Thornton, Northeastern University

We love Collegewise. The best part for me, as a mom, was that I never had to bug, push or prod my kid to get everything turned in and completed. His counselor was so on top of everything! She really worked with our son to create a customized plan for him, which wasn't easy since even he wasn't quite sure what he wanted.

Lisa Fahey, Parent of Jack Fahey, San Diego State University
