What People Are Saying

Very Helpful and 100% Satisfied

My PCC counselor was extremely dedicated, amiable and insightful. An amazing counselor and team, I would recommend PCC to anyone considering a professional college consultant (10/10). I don’t think I would have made it through the process with the results that I have today without their help.

Chris Admitted to Amherst, UChicago, St. John’s College (Presidential Scholarship)

They worked with me around the clock

I primarily wanted help with my college essays, but my PCC counselor did more than that. He strengthened my entire application to become very presentable before any college admissions committee. He worked with me around the clock, and made himself available whenever I needed him. If I was not a PCC client, I would not be attending one of my top-choice colleges in the Fall and my essays and application would be sub-par. All in all, I highly recommend Princeton College Consulting because working with them will indefinitely increase your odds at attending your dream school.

Thank you for helping to make my dreams come true

Thank you so much for all you have done over the past three years. Your guidance and patience helped transform me and my family from clueless and concerned to confident, college ready individuals – and for that I could not be more grateful. I truly appreciate all the time and effort that you put into reading essays and resumes, talking me through the process, and just helping me feel comfortable hitting the “submit” button. I know I wasn’t always the best client and that at times I needed to be helped back on track, which you always accomplished, not by yelling but rather, by encouraging and motivating me. It was always a pleasure being able to talk with you and navigate the vast college landscape. Through minor digressions and sidebars I feel that I gained a true mentor and I couldn’t be more thankful. I’ll be sure to keep in touch next year and update you on NYU Stern and all the crazy things that will inevitably happen in the city.

Thank you for helping to make my dreams come true and preparing me for the next chapter in life.

Thank you for everything

It is hard to believe that I have been working with Princeton College Consulting for 3 years. I cannot thank you enough for all of the help you offered. To say I couldn’t have done it without you is certainly an understatement.

You always worked tirelessly to ensure that I was presenting the best version of myself across all facets of the application process. The essays you helped me write, the detailed in-depth interview responses you helped me formulate, and the college list you helped me put together would not have been so personal and specific to me if it weren’t for your guidance and expertise.

I have more to thank you for, though, than just being exceptionally good at your job. You connected with me and made me learn things about myself that I never would have known. You pushed me to be my best and you believed that I would achieve my goal as long as I put in the work. It meant a lot to hear from someone other than my parents that I would become a doctor one day.

I wouldn’t have the opportunity of a BSMD program without you. I’m beyond excited to start and I will of course keep you updated. Good luck with working with Michelle, though. She’s a much less cool version of myself.

Thank you for everything.

Invaluable advice and strategies

Princeton College Consulting offered invaluable advice and strategies throughout the college application process. The opportunity to discuss ideas with an experienced counselor helped me develop essays that were personal, intellectually complex, and unique. I would highly recommend their services for students seeking guidance on their college applications.

More professional than the other services

My wife and I wanted to thank you for the time and effort you put into our son’s application process. Your insight and professionalism turned a chaotic, emotional quagmire into an organized, efficient goal-oriented process. We were all very lucky to find you... PCC seemed more professional than the other services out there and it clearly is. We will be in touch to discuss our younger son’s college options and then soon after, our last daughter will start working with you.

Dr. S. Smith, Parent Student, University of Virginia

No better experience

Working with my Princeton College Consulting counselor was a personal and fascinating journey, not a mechanical college application program. I believe that the essence of applying and eventually going to university is discovering self-identity and self-worth, and trusting myself with my ability to achieve what I set out to do. And I can’t think of or ask for a better experience of being very firmly supported by my counselor without being overwhelmed.

M. Peng, Student Attending Syracuse University (Newhouse / Whitman dual degree)

Peace of mind

We used Princeton College Consulting last year when our son was a senior. We were told college application was a complicated process, so my wife and I decided to find a counselor to guide our son. In the process, we learned that there were so many things to do in the college application. Our counselor, helped us design an extensive schedule, covering everything from college tours, college selection, essay composition, all the way to college interview preparation. This schedule gave us peace of mind without worrying that we would miss anything. Our counselor was very reachable, whenever we sent him an email with questions, we always get quick responses. With his help, my son got into his first choice of college, Brown University. We were so happy with the result.

Exceeded my expectations

We wanted to hire a college admissions counselor because his high school guidance counselor had told him that applying to colleges was a complicated and daunting task. Additionally, school guidance counselors are excellent, but they really do not have too much time for each student. I had worked with other college consulting services before, and they either cared more about making a profit or had a superficial understanding of the application process. Princeton College Consulting has a proven track record of helping clients get into their dream schools, so I felt more confident about selecting its services. Ever since the first meeting, I have not regretted my decision.

Working with Princeton College Consulting has exceeded my expectations not only because of the amount of help they have given to my son to navigate the college admissions process, but also because they have nurtured my son's professionalism and maturity. My son spent countless hours with Princeton counselors brainstorming, proofreading, and reading essays, as well as doing interview preparation and fulfilling various college application requirements. Princeton College Consulting helped guide my son through the application process while allowing him to do his own work. As a result, I believe that my son has not only learned much about the college admissions process, but also about how to build a successful future in college and beyond. Additionally, my son was accepted into almost every school he applied to including his top choices. I can state with conviction that my son would not have gotten into his dream school without the excellent advice and guidance of Princeton College Consulting. In short, Princeton College Consulting’s services are second to none!

Went extremely smooth

My mother and I, having just moved to the United States, were new to the college process, and we realized that we needed a guide to help us navigate it. I referred to Princeton College Consulting (PCC) by a friend, but I then had a face-to-face meeting with my counselor which made me more comfortable in working with them for the next few years. When I look back at the experience, I cannot even begin to explain how big of a help Princeton College Consulting was to my mother and I. Without their help, we would definitely have had a more difficult time getting organized for the college admissions process and also finishing every little piece required in time. With my counselor’s help, I was able to approach the admissions process with more ease, and with no additional stress. Thanks to Princeton College Consulting, I was able to make my college choices and begin work on my applications early, and my application process went extremely smoothly. I was able to pour my heart out in my essays because I didn’t have to worry about the prompts’ locations, deadlines, etc. Now, as I have received acceptances to many of my top schools, I am incredibly grateful for their having aided me in my journey. If someone asked me I would, without a single breath of hesitation, say that they are the way to go!
