Parent of Emory Student

For us, one of the biggest benefits of their service centered around having a resource to bounce ideas off of and discuss various college visits with in order to take lots of information and data and boil it all down into an action plan. In addition, their broad experience allowed us to get a realistic and objective view on how to proceed, rather than having to rely solely on family, friends or school guidance.

Parents of a daughter currently attending Yale University

My husband and I chose Shereem to help our daughter through the college application process because of his prior experiences as a college admissions officer and independent school English teacher. Although I am a published author and often am asked by my children to edit their work, I thought it was important in this process to create some space between our child and her parents. Shereem ensured our daughter independently put together a collection of well-written essays, in an 18-year-old “voice” that reflected the entirety of her character and experiences. He created his own relationship with our daughter, kept her timely and on-track in her applications process, and allowed us to enjoy the last 18 months of her time at home before leaving for college.

Parent of Student Accepted to Trinity

I felt that it would be great for my senior to have some guidance in the admissions process without me being involved directly. The biggest advantage was helping set deadlines and giving information about colleges that was honest and insightful.

Parent of UPenn Student

Videoconferencing was the best. Our daughter had the ability to connect regularly while overseas during the summer vacation. The times were flexible and do-able.

Videoconferencing was easy, and as if they were sitting in our home. They helped with editing the common app essay and improving the supplemental essays. My child sent all applications out early and completed.
