“My daughter is a currently a senior in college. We attended these seminars during her high school years. This seminar helped us chart a course for our daughter's high school years which eventually led to her getting into the school of her choice. We got great advice on what activities to engage in during high school years, test taking strategies, essay writing and most importantly the timeline. It also helped dispel many myths about the admissions process. I would strongly urge parents and children to attend this workshop”
