It is no understatement to say that we could not have gotten through the college process–no less already with 4 acceptances in the bag–without Mary’s guidance and dedication. She helped us identify appropriate schools, created a game plan for our approach to the applications, was on the other end of the phone whenever we had a nervous question or crisis of confidence and created a list of scholarship opportunities for my son to explore. Mary was really helpful as the mediator between the controlling mother (me) and her less than engaged son. Mary was able to motivate my son to take charge of the process in a way that I hadn’t been able to. We came to her late in the process and the only regret that I have is that we didn’t bring her on to the team when he was still a junior in high school.
