Over the past 18 years, almost every single one of our clients has been accepted to his or her top choice school.
We LOVED absolutely everything about our experience with EA. You have put together an incredible team, which makes the service so comprehensive. No detail is left to chance. And while you are truly on top of everything, it remains very student-driven, which we so appreciated. Our daughter truly enjoyed working with all members of her team, and she (and us too) felt supported all along. We are so grateful for all of your help in this very challenging process. Thank you, truly, for all that you have done.

Aside from helping me with the actual applications, you were always so encouraging and supportive, which helped me much more than you might realize! I know your job was made much more difficult by the fact that I’m overseas, and wanted to thank you for being so patient with me all the way through. I really cannot thank you enough!
– Columbia University Student
You made sure every aspect of the application brought out the absolute best in my daughter, while keeping her focused, calm and on track. You became so instrumental in helping our entire family get through a stressful process.
– University of Pennsylvania Parent
I want to thank you for everything you did for [our daughter]! Unlike most other parents I know, this was a fairly low-key process for us, thanks to you and [our daughter]. It was fantastic for [our daughter] to have you as her mentor and sounding board. I don’t know what she would have done without you. And because of you, there was less stress for all of us, as we knew she was getting the best guidance possible.
– Harvard University Parent
We would like to express our sincere gratitude for your invaluable help and guidance. The time was short and the demands were high (from me in particular), and you have done a superb job!
– University of Chicago Parent
Your insights, guidance, admonitions and perspectives proved extremely valuable, and [my son] obviously is thrilled that he will be attending his “dream school” after working so hard, and for so long, on everything he has undertaken thus far in his life. We also know that this represents but one of many steps (albeit a huge one in this case:) of a journey which [my son] will continue for many years to come, at Dartmouth and beyond!
– Dartmouth College Parent
Our counselor was available — literally sometimes within minutes — whenever we needed guidance. And, unlike even the best high school college counseling situations, we felt comfortable asking ANY question without feeling judged or short-changed on time. Our counselor was an investment and a blessing!
– Harvard University Parent
You mean so very much to me and to my family. We are eternally grateful to you for your guidance, patience, and expertise. And we still have [his] law school applications looming in the future, so you aren’t quite done with us yet!
– Cornell University Parent
I didn’t ignore your last email; I just wanted to wait until the craziness of AP and IB exams had passed so that I could properly thank you for everything you have done for me. I honestly have no idea what I would have done without your guidance, motivation, and support. I am definitely not the type of person that likes to talk about myself, so those essays were probably the hardest assignments I’ve had up to this point. Your comments and suggestions were critical to my completion of the essays. I think they were really high quality, and we even finished them on time! I was skeptical that we would be able to stick to any sort of schedule, and yet by early December we were done and I was done writing extra applications!
I also appreciate the time you took to help me with my decision when all was said and done. Every day that passes I become more and more excited about Brown, and unlike a lot of my friends, I really have zero second thoughts about my decision. I truly believe that Brown will offer me the best undergraduate experience of any college anywhere, and I find it amazing that the college process worked out in such a fortunate way.
Anyway, I just want to thank you for everything. You were so helpful, steady, and calm. Again, I have no idea what I would have done without you.

l wanted to let you know that I got into 7 schools during regular decision. I was accepted to Boston College, Notre Dame, Williams, Cornell, Brown, Columbia, and Harvard! Thank you for all of your help with my personal statement and the rest of my application. I truly appreciate it.
– Harvard University Student
We are all thrilled beyond belief and so proud. I can’t thank you enough for your coaching and guidance to [our daughter] along this process. It was rocky at the beginning given her ambitions and her scores but you crushed it! [She] loved working with you and felt so supported and counseled the entire time. [My husband] and I continue to be huge fans of you and your work.
– Washington University in St. Louis Parent
Thank you so much! It is such a big relief knowing that [my son] made it to Columbia University. I couldn’t be prouder of him! My whole family is very grateful for your advice and your contribution to [my son’s] college process. Thank you so much for that!
– Columbia University Parent
Thank you for your fantastic job on [my daughter’s] ED and EA applications. Those applications are so good that I can’t find the right words for them. Her counselor chose one of her CMU essays as the counselor’s case study!
– Carnegie Mellon University (Computer Science) Parent
We were fortunate to work with the Expert Admissions team this past year when my daughter was preparing for her college admissions (in the midst of the COVID pandemic uncertainty that surrounded so many of our seniors’ lives). The very positive end result was her Early Decision acceptance to her first choice school, Tufts, but more importantly, she had a fantastic experience working with the Expert Admissions team along the way. What could have been an enormously stressful situation was made so much easier through our partnership (and that is what it is) with the Expert Admissions team. From her first appointment where it was clear the team wanted to get to know her and really understand her interests and goals for her college application process, to the very clear deadlines that were set for her, we felt supported 100% at every step. Our daughter felt comfortable reaching out with any questions, as did I. The responses from the full team were always quick and clear. I would recommend working with Expert Admissions to anyone who was interested in college counseling.
– Tufts University Parent
Expert Admissions was an incredible resource for our son and daughter as they went through the college process and both were accepted to their first choice schools. The team knew the answer to every question we had about specific schools, testing, and the applications. They were so easy to work with, very responsive, and extremely supportive through every step. I highly recommend Expert Admissions to anyone looking for a college advisor!
