Rob had a masterful way of connecting with our son and quickly developing an efficient and productive relationship. As parents we got out of the way and saw outstanding results quickly. Rob is gifted relationally and knew how to get the best work out of our son and motivate him to complete the arduous college application tasks.
"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!"
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.
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.
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.
