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.

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.
Thanks you for everything,

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.

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!

“I see that it is the journey of the college process, not the end result, that’s essential.”
Through my time working with Princeton College Consulting, I have grown as both a student and an individual. I began the program in my Sophomore year of high school and since then my writing, time management skills and character have developed massively. This is not to say that I was a bad person before, rather that through our work I developed a stronger sense of self; I learned to place an emphasis on authenticity, finding what I really enjoy, focusing on that, and avoiding doing things simply to please an admissions committee, while also undertaking the necessary academia.
Most importantly, I came to understand that it’s ok to admit weakness and be vulnerable in my application, that universities don’t expect a superhuman applicant. In retrospect, I see that it is the journey of the college process, not the end result, that’s essential. It is a conduit for personal development, a method by which one makes that challenging leap from adolescence to adulthood, a time where one must look back on what they have accomplished and begin to discern the path ahead.
Though it seemed daunting at first, considering the magnitude of what lay ahead of me, Princeton College Consulting broke down what needed to be completed into small, concrete steps while keeping in mind what else needed to be done looking forward. For all of this and more, I highly recommend Princeton College Consulting to any prospective students and their families.
Thank you so much for what you have done to teach and shape me on this voyage. I am eternally indebted.
