"They helped her finalize a great list that included colleges that we probably wouldn't have discovered otherwise, they proof read her essays, gave suggestions what she could improve, so that she ended up with a wonderful common application, and scholarship application essay, and helped her prepare college admission interviews...with the help of Passport Admissions she got into almost all her colleges, including her reach schools."
"My daughter did receive a acceptances to all of the colleges she applied to and received honors invitations and scholarships to several of the schools. I don’t believe that would have happened without Rob. Rob will also keep you on top of all financing forms required to be filled out and their applicable due dates...Best money I have spent for my daughter's college selection!"
His support and enthusiasm made the application process easy and fun! I was finished with all my applications well before some of my friends had even begun to fill out the Common App. Passport made the process stress free and successful as well.
Lyn has been very flexible with my schedule, always prompt to respond, and I honestly don’t know how I would have gotten through this application process without her help. I strongly urge you to work with Lyn on all of your application needs!
Lyn from Passport Admissions, was such a huge help to my daughter, Lauren, in organizing and completing her college application. She worked extremely efficiently and was able to get so much done in a short amount of time.
I couldn't have asked for people more honest and helpful in helping to shape my application into something that I was very proud of. I felt as if the app process was one of the first chances that I've had to put my entire life on display and Rob and Alison helped me to face that task.
What makes Passport Admissions unique is that the program is so personalized. You're not working with adults who act condescending or superior. On the same note, they don't sugar-coat the reality for you.
Everyone I came in contact with was extremely professional, courteous, friendly, kind, and knowledgeable.
The most valuable thing about Passport Admissions for me was that it helped me realize that there were actually interesting things about myself! I had all these stories and I figured that they were all completely uninteresting from an admissions perspective, but Passport showed me not only which ones were perfect for college admissions essays, but also how to write about them in a way that was both interesting and completely in line with my own writing style.
Applying to college is like hiking a new mountain you have never hiked before. The trail is there, and you can do it by yourself, but it is so handy to have someone who can guide you along the way. Passport was like that guide. Writing the essays is like climbing the steep part of the mountain. It is nice to have the encouragement to keep going and get it done.
Rob and Passport Admissions have consistently exceeded my hopes, providing very accurate advice about various appropriate (and unappropriate, or more realistically, un-obtainable) schools given my particular child's academic record, extremely helpful applications workshops and essay reviews, and unflagging encouragement througout the dreadful college applications process. We are now in the midst of acceptance season, and things are going very well, with one of my son's top-choice schools having offered him nearly full-tuition in financial aid. Rob's advice during the application process has been extremely accurate and helpful."
I truly like the fact that my daughter owned the project (essay). Before this one on one essay class, Katarina kept asking me “when will you write my essay?” Alison, was able to get Katarina thinking, writing and coming up with ideas.
Initially, not really understanding what services they really provided, the price almost seemed steep but looking back on all the work they did, the breadth of their services, and the great outcome we received, I am convinced they do not charge enough for their services. Not only are they familiar with the college application process and what colleges are looking for- they sincerely care and did everything they could, to help our son.
I LOVE ALISON HERR. She was enthusiastic and even when things looked bleak, was totally supportive and never down! She was always smiling.
It really brought out the best in me, and made my applications the best they could be. With Passport I always felt that I was in great hands. They did not write anything for me or try to mold me into something I was not, but directed me in a direction that was entirely original and personal to me
The more I began to research the admissions process for myself, the more I realized how much there was to know. I honestly don't think I would have retained my sanity throughout the admissions process if it were not for Passport's support. From a wonderful editor to the ability to call or email someone essentially any time of day, I believe Passport was the catalyst that drove my application from good to excellent.
All of the effort that you and your staff put into "teaching" us about the college application process was amazing. I don't know how we would have gotten through this arduous and confusing process so successfully without your help.
Passport Admissions gave me a sense of order and the ability to see with clarity the next step on a long, undefined, pathway.But besides just helping me find organization and clear steps towards my goals, they helped me improve my applications tremendously.
