College Testimonials from Clients Who Were Accepted to University of Florida

Laila Rahbari
Cornell

I worked with Pam and she completely saved my application! I’m extremely satisfied with my results and would definitely recommend college advisor to someone else. We worked on individual essays and she truly cared about my application. I’m so grateful to get accepted to Cornell and it wouldn’t have been without college advisor.

Lucas McKamey
Cornell University

Going into the college application process, I didn’t even know what CommonApp was, much less who I was or what characteristics I wanted to present to these mysterious arbiters of my next four years. My experience with CollegeAdvisor and, specifically, my mentor, Julia, has equipped me with the confidence, supportive guidance, and sense of identity to slay that application dragon once and for all. I’m confident whoever is found underneath Julia’s congenial tutelage will embrace a similar triumph over this fire-breathing devil.

Jonathan Wu
University of Pennsylvania

My advisor (Phillip) was very responsive and always gave me great tips about my essays and application strategies. Moreover, the access to the whole advisor network was a game changer, as I was able to talk to an alumni of my dream school, University of Pennsylvania, which I believe was a big factor of my acceptance to the school during the regular decision round!

Jennifer Lawrence
Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Gabe was absolutely wonderful as an advisor. He was very thorough with both grammatical and content edits in my essays, as well as very knowledgeable whenever I had questions about the process. I primarily needed CollegeAdvisor for assistance in crafting my essays and activity descriptions and didn’t really make use of any of the offered webinars/workshops; I also had my college list already picked out when I came to CollegeAdvisor, so I didn’t receive much help there either, but Gabe did help me do some research on schools that I was applying.

Avery Medina

My experience with CollegeAdvisor was excellent. My advisor, Carolyn, was always available for help and kept me on track with a well planned out timeline. She helped me refine my essay ideas and was fantastic when it came to editing and clarifying ideas in my writing. My college application experience would have been much tougher had it not been for CollegeAdvisor. I definitely recommend!
