Success Stories and Testimonials

We have worked with hundreds of families throughout the US. Here are just a few of the comments we’ve received.

“When my wife and I first met Chelsea we had a sense that she was the right person to guide us through the financial aid process. With two kids going off to school at the same time we were really overwhelmed. Chelsea made it incredibly easy. She went over our financial situation, explained how the system works, and gave us that guidance we needed. While the cost of college (for two no less) is pretty extreme, I feel like we are actually making it through due to Chelsea’s knowledge and help.”

Charles, Parent, George Washington University, USC

“People say there is no ‘easy way’ in education; however Chelsea proves them wrong. She allows us to have fun while learning at the same time. She is also a brilliant writer who helped me refine my personal marketing statement and develop my own style in writing.”

Paul, Student, UC Berkeley

“The college application process was a very stressful time in my life. Without some sort of mentor or tutor – other than parents or college guidance counselor – it is easy to get very lost in it all. I had so many ideas for my personal statement, but I did not know how to conflate them into one essay. I was in desperate need of assistance. Chelsea was able to teach me process and methods that I needed to know in order to accomplish my goals. I was a beginner in it all, and she acted as the bumpers on a bowling alley, directing the ball to the pins; however, still letting my ideas still be the force leading the way.”

Sarah, Student, George Washington University

“It has been so helpful to have someone there to help me through the process and keep me on track. Applying to college can be stressful and scary, but Chelsea helped answer all of my questions and navigate the craziness of the application process.”

Miriam, Student, USC

“Our financial situation was very complicated due to our involvement with several small businesses and start-ups in progress. We had saved for our children’s college educations and were shocked to learn that we could be penalized on the financial aid formulas for our college savings. Lee worked with our daughter on her applications, and Beau was able to wade through and re-allocate our financials to substantially improve our financial aid eligibility in a fair, legal and equitable manner. We are confident that our pre-planned education assets will not be depleted prematurely.”

Ed, Parent, Fordham

“Thanks for all your help with everything. I’m so happy we have you.”

Rachel, Parent, Syracuse

“This was my first experience with Chelsea and her company College Application Training. And it was without a doubt one of my best experiences. She helped me with the various transfer applications, and even with development of my portfolio. Chelsea was very patient and extensively helpful throughout the entire procedure, always attentive to my every question. I am very grateful for her meticulous application process, setting due dates for me, and reviewing my work in order to ensure the submittal of a thorough and successful college application.

Mel, Student, UCLA

“Thanks for checking in. I just finished reading your ‘fear’ pep talk email and that helped remind me to just breathe. As parents, we all want our kids to be successful and get what they want, especially when we see how hard they’ve worked to achieve their goals. But we also know that rejection is a possibility…Thanks for your support. I know much of Amy’s comfort and confidence right now is due to her work with you.”

Julie, Parent, Northwestern

“Thank you for your help and advice, and especially for encouraging our daughter to re-take the SAT and ACT tests. Those results were a key component of her being admitted! There were over 17k applicants and she was among the about 1,100 who made it. From the limited communication we’ve had with her, it’s been challenging both physically and mentally, but she could not be happier!”

Peter, Parent, West Point

“We are really enjoying the sessions. Thank you for all your hard work. There is NO way in the world that I could help and guide like you do!!! Thank you so much.”

Vanessa, Parent, University of San Francisco

“Thank you so much, Chelsea! You’ve honestly made the college process so much less stressful than it could be. I’m so grateful to have had you in particular to guide me during this process. Thank you for your help and positivity!”

Sophia, Student, Columbia College

“I am so happy you have been our partner on this journey. You are fantastic.”

Gabrielle, Parent, UC Santa Cruz
