"Jennifer is a calm, reassuring, and caring expert who guides you through every step of the hectic and often confusing college application process. We appreciated having our questions promptly answered by such a knowledgeable and experienced college consultant.
When our daughter was stressing over draft after draft of her essays, she met with Jennifer to strategize and brainstorm. By asking a series of intuitive questions, Jennifer helped her to find her voice and recall vivid details to enhance her responses. Thanks to Jennifer, she submitted her applications with confidence, and will soon be attending her dream college!"

"Mrs. Piercey has been the greatest help I could ask for in a college counselor. She guided me through the process and made me feel much less stress than I otherwise would have. I went from having no idea what to do for college applications to being organized, timely, and confident. I would not have written the quality of essays I did and gotten into my top choice - MIT - without her."

“High school is so busy with AP classes, varsity sports, extracurricular activities; then add college applications. Jennifer Piercey eased this stressful process not only with her expertise in colleges, but her skill in working with students.
Jennifer took time to get to know our daughter and was able to broaden the scope of colleges to consider. She understands what colleges are looking for and the potential for financial aid. Jennifer set straightforward guidelines to help our daughter be responsible for meeting deadlines.
It was clear Jennifer was the right person when our daughter looked forward to meeting with her to discuss potential colleges and work on essays for the application process. Her collaborative style instilled confidence and a positive attitude in our daughter. Jennifer has been an important part of my daughter's success and has helped our family so much. We highly recommend her to anyone looking for someone who will partner with a student and provide excellent guidance."

“Jennifer was a life saver through the college admissions process. She took the time to get to know my son as a person and help find the right school fit for him. From a parent perspective, Jennifer's input was invaluable. Working with Jennifer allowed me to step out of the parenting role of editor and enforcer of timelines for my son's applications while she took on that role. During an inherently stressful time, I appreciated this so much as it let me enjoy my son's senior year and our time together.”
