What are people saying about Collegewise Rockville?
Without Jordan, I would not have known left from right with all of the varying steps that need to be completed in finding your dream school. Through Jordan’s caring approach, he was able to extract my intended message from occasionally flawed writing, enabling me to express a better version of myself to schools.
Terry, Parent of Juli
University of Georgia
Jordan combines great knowledge and enthusiasm. This combo helped motivate our daughter while providing her excellent guidance. The results speak for themselves. While much of the credit goes to our daughter, Jordan was a huge contributor. She applied to 13 schools and was accepted to 11. We highly recommend Jordan.
I was lucky enough to work with Jordan Kanarek during my college application process. After months of amazing counseling, the impossible was made possible and I was admitted to all of my top three choices. Jordan and Collegewise were very thorough, organized, and immensely encouraging throughout the entire process.
Valarie, Parent of Julianne
University of Georgia
Jordan remained a constant companion and CHAMPION for our daughter throughout her college applications, essays, and commitment to college. Jordan excelled in making both the nervous parents and our daughter feel at ease with the enormous amount of work, time, and effort needed to find, choose, and apply to college.
Pierre, Parent of Alia
With Jordan and Collegewise, I’m assured that my daughter has a good path to select a college and to fulfill her ambition. I’m also confident that I have a counselor and an organization helping me make the right decisions. I’m especially grateful for Jordan and his enthusiasm.
Michael, Parent of Jakob
For a European family ignorant of and intimidated by the college application process, Jordan provided indispensable illumination and advice, resulting in our son’s successful admission to the top-tier college of his choice.
