What are people saying about Collegewise Palo Alto?

I found the brainstorming sessions to be helpful, and I appreciated the freedom given to me when I was writing the essays.


Brown University

We were impressed with the outcome: Our son not only got accepted to his “reach” school, but the financial offers were unbelievable! He got multiple merit-based scholarships and fully paid tuition at many great colleges. We believe Collegewise made a big difference.

Olga, Parent of Nicholas

UT Austin

We simply could not have navigated the college application process as well as we did without Collegewise. I believe that without Collegewise, we never would have found such a great fit for our daughter and the process would have been much harder.

JR Hughson, Parent of Samantha Hughson

Clark University

Collegewise was incredibly helpful! I appreciate this program so much and do not think I could have made it through senior year without it! Every senior should use this program because it's absolutely amazing!

Micah Golomb-Leavitt

Lehigh University

Sophie looked forward to her appointments and did the prep work religiously. Collegewise took the right approach, with clear guidance but a light touch in terms of letting Sophie drive the decision-making. Sophie owned her approach and ended up happy with her options.

David Lindheimer, Parent of Sophie Lindheimer

The University of British Columbia

Collegewise broke up the application process into very manageable pieces so that my son never felt overwhelmed. The essay assistance was top-notch. I have recommended Collegewise to many others!
