“When my wife first suggested that we hire Magellan for our daughter’s college counseling needs, I was a little skeptical.  Was this a necessity?  Having worked with Debbie and the Magellan team, the answer is a resounding YES.  The college application process can be daunting, confusing, and at times overwhelming.  Magellan took the pressure off of us and beautifully navigated every step.  Debbie truly got to know our daughter as a person and learned about her ambitions and life goals. This personal investment led to incredible suggestions for universities that would best meet her needs.  Our daughter was accepted to all her top choices and we couldn’t be happier.  We strongly recommend Magellan to anyone with college-bound kids.”
— Matt, Woodland Hills – father of Oak Park High School student

“Thank you SO MUCH for taking the stress out of this process and for helping us all along this journey.  You are invaluable.”
— Jody, Woodland Hills – mother of Agoura High School student

“Thanks for everything you are doing for our daughter.  We would be lost without you.”
— Matt, Agoura Hills – father of Agoura High School student

“I wanted to sincerely thank you for all your help with [our daughter’s] efforts to get into college. We are overwhelmed with happiness and with all of the colleges where she’s been accepted. I sincerely believe that we wouldn’t have been able to have done it without you.”
— Patti, Thousand Oaks – mother of Moorpark High School student

“We truly appreciate the time you took to get to know us, in order to help us go somewhere we would be happy.  You opened our eyes to colleges we didn’t know were out there and to the idea that college isn’t just a place where you get an education, but also where we could build a life and create memories…you created a comfortable environment to talk about our concerns, and made us excited about the future!”
— Naomie and Hannah, High Tech Los Angeles Class of 2015

— Gina, Woodland Hills – mother of El Camino Real Charter High School student

— Alexus, Palisades Charter High School Class of 2015

“Evelyn provided our daughter and our family the care and time needed to fully understand the application process and the options available and was realistic in terms of safety and reach schools.  Our daughter had many options of schools to choose from and when she was wait listed at her top choice, Evelyn continued to support her and was our first call upon acceptance.  We could not have done it without her integrity, honesty and passion towards helping schools find the right students!”
— Lynda, Santa Monica – mother of Santa Monica High School student

— Elisa, Pacific Palisades – mother of Archer School student

“The acceptance letters are here – too many to count!  [Our son] got into ALL of the colleges and universities that he had hoped for!  We are so relieved and ECSTATIC!  I cannot begin to express our gratitude for your guidance and wisdom as you assisted him through this entire process.  From start to finish you have been an invaluable partner, cheerleader, therapist, coach in addition to being the best professional college counselor we could have hoped for!”

I was admitted to my first choice college, Princeton!  As icing on the cake, I was also admitted to Columbia, Dartmouth, University of Pennsylvania, Cornell, Amherst, Swarthmore, Rice, UVA, Duke, UC Berkeley, UCLA, and UCSD.  Thank you for all of your help throughout the college process. You thoroughly prepared me for my interviews, and I attribute my having successful interviews to your guidance…my Princeton interviewer informed me that he wrote a second letter to Princeton after he heard I was deferred.”
— Adam, Brentwood School Class of 2012

“Working with Evelyn was a genuine pleasure … She loves building a great list and her enthusiasm, intelligence and positive attitude go a long way to bolstering a weary and worried senior through the seemingly endless process of all the step by step work that must be done to ensure your great kid is discovered and appreciated for all he is by an equally great school. And that’s exactly what happened.”
— Melanie, Mar Vista – mother of Venice High School student
