Client Testimonials

Don’t Take Our Word For It…Take Theirs.

Now that the college decision has been made (WHEW!), we want to take a moment to express our deepest gratitude!

We are so thankful that we had your expertise to guide us through the college admission process.

You have been such a comfort to have in our corner! You truly made the whole process so much easier.

Marcus is beyond excited to go to Fordham in NYC, and Gabe and I are so relieved that we don't have to spend our retirement funds to send him there!!! A total win!

We will continue to highly recommend you to our friends!

-Sandra and Gabe Gonzalez

We wanted to thank you so much for all the help you gave us throughout the college
financial planning process. Your expertise and knowledge helped us with the challenges
we encountered and we are so happy with the outcome. You helped us understand the
process and helped us save thousands of dollars. Our daughter is now able to attend
her dream school.

-Jenny and Bill Kelly

We are so grateful to Peter for his excellent guidance during this college application process. From the beginning when he helped us work with our son to select the colleges he wanted to apply to, to navigating the early decision questions, to ultimately drafting the actual essays and applications, Peter was always available and incredibly knowledgeable. But perhaps more importantly to us, Peter had a remarkable rapport with our son. He got to know my son, appreciated him for who he is, and ultimately helped him to craft an application that truly captured his personality – which in the end I feel made all the difference.

-Joan Silverstein

I hope you have been doing well. I’m delighted to share with you that I committed to Northeastern University as a combined Computer Science and Physics major!

I couldn't thank you enough for your meaningful help and advice. I’m really thankful for my college application experience not only because it was well managed, but also that I learned how to write a compelling and truly unique essay. The advice you gave me for writing essays has been applied far beyond just college apps; it helped me succeed in AP Lang and sharpen my edge in communication. Having you as my college advisors was such a great experience. It was a pleasure to work with you and to learn from you.

-Mauricio Tedeschi

I just want to thank you for making it possible to have the time for us today.

In behalf of Sam, and Jay we appreciate your wise advises, and great recommendations. We all left your office with some hopes and enthusiasms regarding the adjustment our son is about to take.

We really appreciate you, as a wonderful friend and a great adviser.

God bless you, and your family. Thank you again.

My entire college selection and application process wouldn’t have been as successful without Peter’s help; I cannot thank him enough for all the advice. His vast experience, constant attention, and caring for my success exceeded my expectations. I would not have gotten nearly this far without Peter’s help. He helped me since the beginning and now, thanks to him, I am enrolled in Babson - one of my top choices - and was awarded one of the highest ranking scholarships!! I really cannot be happier with the results of this process. The countless meetings with Peter, stressful months, and hard work really paid off! I was extremely fortunate to have his help throughout the entire process!

-Cristina Gonzalez

I cannot thank you enough for the guidance you had given me throughout my entire college selection and application process. I am writing to you now from the University of Richmond, a school I never would have considered until you brought it to my attention. UR is the perfect school for me and I will be forever grateful that you convinced me to give it a chance. But as important as finding the right school is, it was equally as important to make sure I actually had a chance in being accepted. Having you review my application and essays was helpful and gave me a peace of mind I would not have had otherwise. Your assistance my junior and senior year was invaluable and I don’t know what I would have done or where I would be right now if it weren’t for you

Thanks again!

Now that the mission of placing my two daughters at College is finished, I would like to thank you very much for all the help, support and advice you have been giving me and to my daughters during these last couple of years!

We all know how complicate and sometimes worrisome all this process of choosing the right Colleges/ Universities can be , especially for somebody that was not born in the USA, which brings extra concerns into knowing if we are doing all the right things and steps to help our kids to get to the best colleges they can.

So , I thank you for all the patience with the girls, guiding them or their Essays, but still leaving them free to express themselves, helping picking the best schools that would fit their dreams , but yet , keeping it real under our financial reality, and also the invaluable help you gave them on making sure that all applications were fulfilled on time and correctly

For all of this I thank you very much and wish you keep doing what you do so well, to help other parents like me.

I met Peter Ratzan at a talk he was giving on college planning about three years ago when my oldest daughter was a Junior in high school. I was completely impressed with his presentation and decided to sign up as a member of Your College Concierge. I read all the monthly newsletters and participated in the coaching calls. Peter and Jill are true professionals that do the research, travel the country to find out the latest trends in the admissions process, and visit schools so that they can recommend the best fit for their students. Everything you could possibly need to know about the admissions process, they can provide to you. I felt completely prepared and knew exactly what to do and when to do it. I had both of my daughters attend the College Applications Summer Camp where they completed their essays, resumes and were coached on the entire application process. The service we received from Your College Concierge was INVALUABLE, and both of my daughters ended up with several incredible options for college and were able to pick the schools of their dreams...at a cost we could afford! My oldest daughter is a rising Junior at the University of Florida, and my younger daughter will start this Fall at the University of Miami. So thank you, thank you, thank you Peter and Jill! We will always be truly grateful for everything you’ve done for us.
