My son is a freshman in college and absolutely loves his school. The college application process is quite daunting, so I appreciate that Elizabeth was able to support him to make the process as smooth and painless as possible. It was hard for our son to hear questions from my husband and I about his college applications without feeling something akin to “Mom and Dad treat me like I’m twelve.” If Elizabeth asked the same questions, we could tell he felt there was no judgment, just a desire to hear and to help him.
He really liked working with Elizabeth; she always arrived upbeat and full of enthusiasm. She listened to what was important to him in choosing prospective schools, and I believe he took it as a sign of respect that she worked directly with him on everything from making appointments and setting goals and deadlines to sitting down with him to go over his applications one last time prior to submission.
As a parent, it is hard not to worry about college applications and whether one’s child will find a good fit. I am grateful that Elizabeth’s knowledge, enthusiasm, and down to earth approach made my family’s life a lot easier and was instrumental in my son’s success in being accepted to the college of his choice.
