"I have been working with Mary Lou Kelly and College Consulting LLC for the past several years, since my daughter was a freshman in HS. She is now a junior. Mary Lou has been extremely helpful and instrumental in helping to navigate the curriculum and path for my daughter so that, at an early age, she is more aware of the issues surrounding college candidacy and is better positioned to capitalize on them. On Mary Lou’s advice we have been conducting some early college visits and this has been very helpful in providing the tangible bar of achievement and success necessary to attend a particular school. This provides clear information as to what is required for admission and additional incentive to my daughter to succeed at the HS level. Mary Lou’s overall college insight in is unmatched as to what we have seen thus far."
