"As a parent who was tackling the college process for the first time with our daughter, it was very daunting. Things had certainly changed since the time I had attended college and only sent out 3 applications to state schools. We found Kevin via a presentation at the local high school when he was brought in to address the parents of juniors at Osbourn Park High School on the college process. I was so impressed with his presentation that I met with him afterwards to inquire about how we could become clients, and to meet with my daughter, Megan, to get the process started in finding her the right school. Having grown up in Ohio myself, and a graduate of a university in Ohio, I was not as familiar with the Virginia colleges. Kevin was an absolute key component in helping us negotiate the complex process of identifying schools for our daughter to look at, and then encouraging us to personally visit, along with what to expect during those visits and follow up. We met with Kevin several times preliminarily where he asked questions to get a feel for the kind of school - enrollment size, rural / urban, class size she thought she would thrive in, private/public, field of study etc. that would best fit her personality and needs. This was absolutely critical for us as a starting point to know exactly where we should start to look. The next step was the college essays. I can’t say enough about Kevin. He would ask her to elaborate on certain points, would critique her thoughts, and help rephrase to put her thoughts in the best way without him actually writing them. I learned over the meetings that Kevin had extensive experience with admissions departments and we fully trusted his advice and it proved to be correct. He recommended she do about 6 applications which went to reach schools, target schools and safety colleges. In the end, our daughter couldn’t be happier at Christopher Newport University and the transition was eased because we knew it was the right fit for Megan because of the research we did and that she ended up at her number one choice school. I have the utmost respect for Kevin and felt he did an absolutely fantastic job for Megan. Our other daughter, currently also in high school, will also be coming to see him as well to help us negotiate her educational and career path too. I highly recommend Kevin and his company and wish him continued success!"
