My son has worked with Judith since the middle of junior year. He is now a senior. It has been a fantastic experience. Most importantly my son enjoyed meeting with Judith and he felt responsible to her, not us, his parents. That took all the stress off of us and off my son too. I was impressed with the personal approach Judith took with my son. She really seemed to “get” him. She gave us invaluable tips and always took the time to explain things to us. She even took time to talk me down from parental panic attacks over this whole stressful process. She let Jake drive the bus, not us, but always kept us in the loop. Her guidance on Jakes essay writing was excellent. She NEVER told him what to write - only some things to think about. Jake has applied to 9 schools. He has been accepted to all so far and we are waiting to find out about 3 more before he makes any decisions. Every one of the schools has also given us some scholarship funds based on merit. I plan on hiring Judith for my daughter as well. Judith is the real deal with the highest integrity

AP College Consulting has been wonderful! From their three day Common App workshop to their thoughtful, thorough and well rounded essay recommendations, Judy and Sarah have helped to alleviate the inherent stress of the college application process not only for my daughter but for me as well. I especially loved their service flexibility which afforded our family the ability to choose which services would best fit our needs. AP College Consulting's professionalism and consistent availability throughout the application process gave my daughter the best opportunity to file compelling applications. We thank AP College Consulting for helping our daughter get into her Early Decision choice and highly recommend their services.

Judy began working with our family toward the end of our son's junior year. Though he knew he wanted to go to college, he was not motivated to make any effort toward finding a college that would be right for him. Judy was reassuring and knowledgeable. For example, she clarified the process for enrolling in community college classes while in high school when his high school guidance counselor could not. Judy stays up-to-date with the latest college information, and is skilled at doing research and data analysis.
Something that sets Judy and AP College Consulting apart is that they are committed to providing college information to the community free of charge. There is little college information for families at our high school, and Judy gave several informative presentations.

Judy has made the college search and application process less overwhelming for me in many ways. She has given me tips on books to buy, websites to visit, and a timeline with tasks to complete. She calls me regularly and gives her opinion on colleges I'm interested in. She also does research on her own on those colleges to see if they suit my interests and would be beneficial for my future goals / career. I'm grateful to have had this support - my parents were unable to provide the guidance needed for the college search and application process.

Talking to Judith was the perfect first step for my son. She helped him get a handle on the college application process and how to think about selecting schools. The matrix of safety, target, and reach schools she created based on his scores and academic interests really got his (and his parents) attention and made the whole thing real for us. I highly recommend this team for you and your high-schooler.
