Ivy Experience was so helpful in my son's college search process. From SAT prep to the college application essays, they knew exactly how to give my son confidence to tackle the tests, and helped him find his own voice in his personal statement. The best part for me as a parent was being able to confidently hand over this part of the college process to the team. It really helped preserve my relationship with my child during what can be a stressful time in a teenager's life.Sharon F. - Parent
My niece lives out of State. Ivy Experience has been fantastic in her search for colleges. The insight, humor, and personal experience of the Ivy Experience team removed all stress and apprehension for my niece. It was a such a fun time in a potentially threatening and stressful time. I recommend the Ivy Experience for any family with high school students looking at the College Process from anywhere in the USA. This has made the entire College Admission Process manageable!!!! Thank you Ivy Experience - YOU ROCK.Meg L. - Parent
The Ivy Experience was a tremendous asset to my daughter during her application to college. Their advice on how to prepare a winning essay, and how to deal with decisions to be made about early registration and a host of other topics were invaluable during this process. My daughter attended a large public school where counseling for the best way to approach the top schools was virtually non-existent. I am pleased to report success in that my daughter is now part of the Class of 2017 of a prestigious Ivy League university. Our family owes this in large part to the excellent advice we received from the Ivy Experience.Sandra J. - Parent
