College Admissions News – April 2019

Class of 2019 Wrap-Up 

​We saw some great successes with our seniors this year!  We had some great success with students admitted to amazing colleges – our clients were admitted to 158 DIFFERENT colleges and universities around the United States.  But we are most proud of the fact that every single one of our students has multiple college acceptances, and CHOICES!  That’s what we always strive to achieve.

For parents of sophomores and juniors, here’s a post with more thoughts on the lessons we learned from this year’s results.
