First Impressions College Consulting Makes A Difference

Hi Sharon,

Thank you so very much for working with Luke to create a beautifully crafted and polished college essay. We are thrilled with the final product. I truly believe it helps differentiate Luke from other applicants while also giving admissions officers a true sense of who he is.


I am not sure how you got him to focus so well but his whole attitude about writing his college essay changed once he met you. You are a kind, patient and gifted person. Both Luke and I would highly recommend your services to others. Thanks again for everything.

Your well-balanced approach and advice was crucial in helping my daughter manage her application workload and heavy school work.  Once you started work with her last summer, we did not feel any need to check in with her. It felt like we were on “auto-pilot” since we didn’t read any of her essays until the day of submission.

I wanted to thank you for your help with my essays for my graduate school applications. I was accepted to the Occupational Therapy Masters programs at Sacred Heart University, University of Southern California, Columbia University and New York University. I have decided to pursue my masters degree at Columbia University. 


I am so grateful that you were able to help me write essays that really showed who I am and how I see the world.

I just wanted to write and let you know I have gotten in early decision to Johns Hopkins! I am absolutely thrilled and so grateful for the help you gave me. In only an hour you gave me so many corrections that improved my essays so much in ways I hadn't even considered. Thank you again!

Hi Sharon! I just wanted to let you know that I got an acceptance email from Harvard last night!!! Thank you so much for helping me with my essays! You're the best!

I wanted to reach out and share the good news—I was accepted to UCONN’s doctoral program in school psychology earlier this week! 

Thank you for your assistance in writing my undergraduate, masters/graduate, and (most recently) my doctoral essays. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with you over the course of these 8 years, and I appreciate all of the time and support you have provided me in order to reach my career goals.  

Thank you again for your services; I am so thrilled for this acceptance and this next step in my journey.

Thank you for all the time, knowledge, and advice. I am so glad to have experienced this with you. I truly believe you were a tremendous part of helping me succeed in the application process. I hope you have a wonderful year, filled with much happiness, love and joy, and I hope to cross paths with you someday again.

With just a few hours of your support the essay has come alive. We are thrilled with the outcome. I cannot thank you enough and so happy my Google  search led me to you!​

Sharon, I can't tell you enough how wonderful it was working with you. Emily worked independently with you, which took the pressure off my husband and me. She completely trusted and respected you, and the guidance that you gave her. I consider us fortunate to have found you! We'll be calling in a couple of years when my other daughter starts her college process. With warm regards,

I am 100 percent certain that the work you did with my daughter in just a few sessions gave her the tools and confidence she needed to ace her college interview and get accepted into Dental School. You are priceless. I am forever grateful.

Emma has decided to attend Case Western Reserve University, receiving 1/2 tuition in merit aid. 

She had an interview there in the fall that went very well, and she was able to discuss her passion for ballet and desire to combine science and the arts. Looking back, she recognizes the value of the skills she learned working with you.

We have seen such a positive change this year in how she interacts socially and in her ability to present herself and her accomplishments.

Our younger daughter Cate is completing her sophomore year, I am sure we will be contacting you in the future to work with her as well. We have already referred another friend who also has an accomplished, introverted daughter. Thanks again-

Dana Schmidt and John Strong

Your insight was invaluable! Out of the seven schools I've applied to, I've been accepted to Tulane, Northeastern, Providence, Xavier, Loyola, and Fordham. I'm not sure where I'll end up yet, but I would definitely be happy at any of these schools. Thanks again so much for all of your help!

Nicole R. Ridgefield, Connecticut

I'm a high school English teacher in Connecticut and I am beginning the college essay with my junior students. I've very much appreciated the tips you've provided in the past and have shared them with my students. Thank you for your continued guidance.

Hey Ms. Epstein!

Thank you so much for the email! I also had a great time with you! I'm going to the University of Miami and I'll be in the Premed program. I wouldn't have been able to get in without my essay that we worked so hard on together. I'm so excited to go to college and begin a new part of my life.

Justin is so excited about his acceptance to Columbia Business School. He loved working with you and told me that your knowledge, calmness and whole demeanor just made him feel so much better, not to mention helped him to succeed.

Sharon has worked with each of my three children, giving them advice on essay topics as well as making sure their answers truly satisfied the questions. She has a working knowledge of what the schools are looking for, and I think contributed greatly to their success getting into the colleges of each of their choice.


Sharon also spent time with my eldest daughter, practicing through mock interviews how to feel comfortable with the real thing, a skill which is now carrying over to her post-college job interviews. I would highly recommend Sharon to anyone wanting to assure success in navigating the college admission process.
