What they're saying

Lauren is wonderful for many reasons. She is very positive and has created a great dynamic with my daughter. As a result, my daughter looks up to her and respects her opinion, performing the tasks that have been harder for me to have her pursue - what do parents know anyway?
She has worked great with our school counselor to research a good mix of schools for our daughter to consider, and has encouraged our input as parents into the process. She’s great at staying connected with all of us, and fast at replying to emailed queries with detailed responses. I couldn’t ask for more.
— John Carothers, Parent and Professor
We often talk about what a great experience the college process was for our family; you made it so fun. We will always be grateful to you!
— Jenni Deeter, Pathfinders Parent

Lauren, you are honestly one of the sweetest most amazing people I know. Thanks for being such an amazing person and just a beam of sunshine in the craziness that is college apps. I love you so much, thanks for all the help.
— Shane Williams, Johns Hopkins University
Lauren worked with me to craft my overflowing essays into concise and elegant windows into my background. I was extremely impressed with her knowledge of what schools are looking for (something illusive to the majority of us) and by her practical exercises with tangible results. I can say without a doubt that my application package would not have been nearly as impressive without Lauren’s help.
