What Parents Are Saying

“Amy Simon is a master at the college application process.  I sent my son to Amy and within 6 weeks he successfully applied to 5 colleges. With Amy’s direction my son took ownership of his application process and was able to get everything done in an efficient and high quality manner. I was most impressed and excited with his essays.  They were articulate, interesting, and grammatically correct.  I’ve referred many students to Amy and everyone thinks Amy excels at working with high school age student, and is gifted with helping students apply to colleges.”

She also helped my son with explaining the different perspectives on applying to the various colleges and helped organize all of his applications. She took ALL of the pressure off of the parents and made what could have been a very stressful process enjoyable!! We highly recommend Amy Simon without any reservations and look forward to working with her in the future with our two other children.”

“I think you have come up with the most brilliant idea for a business ever!! The nagging that you have prevented from occurring has greatly improved the quality of life in our home. This application process is SO stressful for the kids and adding parental anxiety to the mix would only have fueled that stress. My husband and l truly appreciate all of your help and can't thank you enough for your dedication, patience, and superb work.”

"Amy was a life saver!  With her help, what could have been a very complicated and overwhelming process became organized and stress-free.  Our daughters really enjoyed working with her.  It was a huge relief to them (and us) knowing an experienced eye was making sure applications were completed correctly and on time and that their essays were on topic and worded appropriately.  We highly recommend Amy to anyone looking to simplify the college application process."

“The college application landscape is not what it was 20, 10 or even 2 years ago. It is an ever evolving and complicated process. Amy Simon kept right up to the minute with the new procedures and provided not only expert guidance but the valuable peace of mind for both myself as a parent and for my child, that everything was in order and taken care of and that my daughter was headed in the right direction. The relationship Amy and her team established with my daughter also helped alleviate much of the stress that all college bound children go through and provided a non-parent adult opinion that was much appreciated! Amy Simon College Consulting Inc. Thank you!!!”
