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.
Rob, Ryan, and Alison were essential to my acceptance into medical school. Rob took all of my volunteer, work, and extracurriculars and helped me develop the best possible angle from which to present myself. Ryan subsequently helped me with every last bit of writing. Everything that was sent to the AMCAS and the schools was perfectly polished. The process even helped me elevate my personal standard of writing.
"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.
"The warmth and unwavering support of my Passport family changed everything, as they deepened
the depth and breadth of my application. And brought me where I am today."
It is evident that the team is knowledgeable about the medical school application process in ways that career advisers at my university are not; this encouraged me to feel confident in my application because I was able to gain a unique understanding of the process before submitting my application.
"We have made several personal referrals and all those who have applied have received acceptances. A 100% success rate for Rob is quite impressive in the competitive arena of medical school admissions (or anywhere!)...Rob worked to accentuate the positive aspects of my portfolio and develop a completely different medical school list and strategy."
"Even with my meager numbers, I received 5 interview invites and 2 acceptances to M.D. programs. This was the single greatest success of my life, and I can’t imagine having gone through the process without the support of everyone at Passport Admissions."
“Passport Admissions was crucial to my success as an applicant. As a non-traditional student, I was very anxious about applying to medical school, because I didn’t have the health career services available to most undergraduate students,
When I first started applying to med school, I expected my stress level to go through the roof from what I have heard from friends. However, my experience has been surprisingly pleasant and even exciting, and I know this is because I had Rob and Lyn from Passport supporting me through the process.
I am so glad I used them to help me understand my motives for applying, how much I have to offer to a program, and which best suit my needs. Whether applying for undergraduate or graduate programs I recommend Rob and his team for hands on, face to face personalized support throughout the entire application process through the interview!
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.
The quality of their coaching is outstanding and after just one meeting I already felt miles ahead of my fellow students also applying to law school.
Rob was very understanding of my timeline and made the whole process much smoother. The constant feedback that I received helped me to progress on my application essays rapidly and gave me confidence in the final product. Rob and staff went out of their way to answer my questions and gave me useful specific advice.
When I came to passport I was still searching through programs. Brainstorming with my admissions advisor, actually opened up new pathways and interest areas, and established revisions to my selected program list. Through editing tips, I was able to challenge contradictions in my writing, and ensure that I was portraying myself for my unique points, making me stand out from other students.
Through passport I dramatically reformatted my essay and made it much much better. The support I got through passport was wonderful because they really know what they are doing and talking about.
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."
