Cindy is awesome! She helped my daughter navigate the complexities of applying for college. She recommended colleges my daughter never even considered. Cindy's guidance navigating different applications and direction to writing the best essay was exceptional. Trust me when I say, it saved us lots of frustration and tears had we tried to tackle this on our own. Thank you.
