From our students and parents

Working with The College Connection enabled us to just be 'parents' during the college process. Max responded so positively to Abby’s essay critiques, timetable, and recommendations – We know he would not have done that for anyone else.  . . . . She really brought out the best in our son every step of the way.  His applications were finished well ahead of his peers which enabled him to focus on his schoolwork senior year. Max’s college acceptances are our proof that we made the right decision when we hired The College Connection.

It may sound crazy, but I’m actually going to miss my meetings with Abby and Barbi. They made me feel totally supported. I really believe they cared as much about my college applications as I did. Junior year, Abby pushed me to consider a few colleges that were not on my radar, and I’m so glad I did. One of them turned out to be my first choice and I’m going to be a freshman there this fall!

Abby’s approach is completely ‘student centered.’ She empowers her students to do their own work and to be their own advocate, but she gives them all the tools and guidance they need. Our son told us that none of his English teachers pushed him the way Abby did, and his college essays ended up being his very best writing. It must have paid off because he got into his ‘dream school’ Early Decision!

It’s almost impossible to feel ‘unique’ when you know there are hundreds of thousands of college applicants each year — It can be really discouraging. Abby made me realize that every student has something special to say. She helped me showcase my activities in ways I hadn’t thought of.  . . . . My mock college interview with Barbi went so well, I know I nailed the real thing.
