I cannot thank Margery enough for how much she has helped me. I honestly do not think that I would’ve gotten into my dream school if I didn’t have her to advise me. She helped me perfect my essays, fill out my Common App, and get me familiar with the college application process. She helped me find my college fit and gave me writing advice that I will keep with me for the rest of my life. She gave me insight that I definitely could not have received from any of my school guidance counselors. No matter the situation or the timing, Margery will be there to help.

I felt that Margie provided an excellent service for my child's college applications. Sessions were structured, approachable, and well organized. The session's summary and all notes Margie kept well, so we did not need to repeat anything over again. I was always provided with a follow-up report via email about the progress and what was still needed to be finished.
Margie is very flexible with working hours, always reachable, and willing to find the time and the moment to talk. Margie’s years of experience are very valuable for anyone who is applying to any college or university.
Having Margie on board with this long journey gave me peace of mind and confidence that my child has had excellent supervision. I can say Margie is like a friend, like a step-parent wanting all the best for your son or daughter. I'm so thankful I met her, and we are so happy we worked with Margie.
We will graduate from Tufts University in 2025. THANK YOU, Margie!

Margery was an invaluable resource in my college application journey during this unusual year of Covid-19. She developed my college list, and then refined it when I was finally able to take the SAT. She was extremely knowledgeable about academics, student life, and admissions on so many different campuses. Over the summer, I was stuck and unable to formulate a main idea for my personal statement. Margery helped me develop a common theme that brought together numerous topics to create a strong essay. She also assisted with ten supplementals. She was very reliable, and always edited them quickly, even on short notice when deadlines were fast approaching. Margery helped me navigate the Common App and made the application submission process very straightforward. She also conducted mock question and answer sessions tailored to each school to help prepare me for my college interviews.
I was accepted Early Decision to Northeastern. I am very grateful for Margery’s services, and I would be happy to recommend her to anyone.

Margery had helped out both my brother and close friends of mine, and so it only seemed right for me to go through my college admissions process with her as well. Throughout those few months, she kept me on track to write up and submit my essays well before they were due, as well as making sure they were the absolute best they could be. Without Margery, there is no chance my essays would have been anywhere near as good as they ended up. Margery always responded quickly and promptly to any of my messages or essay edits and somehow always found time to meet with me, despite how short of a notice I gave her (my fault!). She helped me immensely with polishing my application as a whole in addition to the essays and ultimately helped me get into my top school! I'm very grateful for all the help she provided me, and would absolutely recommend her to anyone applying to colleges.

Deciding to work with Margery was the best choice I made to help me with the challenging college application process. My older brother, sister, and family friends also worked with Margery and had fantastic results (Duke, Cornell, UVA, WashU, etc.) so it was a no-brainer.
Margery’s flexibility and extremely quick response time with edits, feedback, and advice made working with her extremely easy and efficient. Throughout the writing process, Margery helped me organize my ideas, thoughts, and story while ensuring that my voice was heard. Our meetings over Zoom were always so helpful when polishing my ideas for supplements and when submitting applications via the Common App. Also, her ability to trim essays is incredible because I would constantly write essays way over the word limit like 700 words for a 250 word essay and Margery could cut it down in just one to two days perfectly. Thanks to Margery I was able to get into Duke (my dream school) early decision, and I am so thankful for all of her support and guidance.
I recommend that anyone who is applying to college, programs, or scholarships works with Margery because she really is an essay whiz!!
