A Chat with Your Way To College
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We provide coaching, expert advice, and tools to help students identify and gain admission to colleges where they can be happy and successful. We aim to understand fully each student’s needs and the family’s cost considerations during our work together. We are committed to providing superior service.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
We saw students preparing poorly for college admissions, with little guidance and support. Far too many of these students end up disappointed with their choices—or having no choice at all. Similarly, there are ways to identify good values from a cost perspective that families are missing out on.
What do you love most about your job?
I started this business a few years ago because I wanted to make a difference, to see how my knowledge and experience could directly benefit a student or a family. I also really enjoy visiting and researching colleges and have come to really appreciate the importance of fit for a particular student.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
From college visit planning to the application process and essays, Jim provided options, insight and encouragement. He was always available by email, telephone or in one-on-one sessions in my home. Jim’s campus reviews were spot on, and his recommendations were personal to my specific needs.
