I truly wish every child and family could have the benefit of your great wisdom and centered approach to college admission...from the very start you understood her idiosyncratic qualities and appreciated them. Thank you again for helping [our daughter] achieve her dream to attend one of the world's greatest universities.

In an admissions world where 2400's and stellar letters of recommendation do not guarantee acceptance to a student's first choice school...IvyWise helped me set my best foot forward in the college process, for which I am eternally grateful.
