OUR RESULTS

“College Transitions was responsive, establishing a great rapport with our son, and keeping the process moving in a friendly and helpful way...fine tuning the essays, error checking he applications, and available to answer panicked questions almost around the clock. Sam was accepted into his first choice, The University of Chicago, a school that had seemed out of reach at the beginning of the process.”

Susan Hayes, New York, NY

Son Attending University of Chicago

Paul Yousef, Vienna, VA

"As an only child with parents who never attended college in America, I was completely frightened of the college admissions process. However, College Transitions immediately settled my fears and supported me through every aspect of that process...-I just got back from Bulldog Days at Yale, and I still cannot believe that I was accepted. Thanks to your help, I got to see my dream come true."

Amanda Zhang, Atlanta, GA
