“Anita, thank you so much for the help you’ve given Robin on her college applications. She is absolutely on the right track thanks to you. You helped her feel that the task is manageable and doable, and she’s really tackling it. She met with Judy, and I can tell that the collaboration is going to be invaluable for Robin as well, so thank you for recommending Judy. What a gift this is to my husband and me, as well as to our daughter. So thank you, thank you, thank you.”
—Robin’s parents, Sudbury, MA

“Working with Anita has helped me to focus my energies on what I thought was going to be an impossible task. I now have definite steps I can follow to help me get all the pieces of these applications put together. I knew the application essay I wrote in English wasn’t good enough to send to schools. Judy helped me make my topic specific and the essay really came together. I was very anxious when I started this whole process and it wound up being almost fun.”
—Matthew, Lincoln, MA

“Dan was very late in the application process when he started to work with Anita and Judy. They calmed him down by organizing his application materials and meeting deadlines. Anita helped him develop a resume that really highlighted his interests and activities; and Judy’s process of working in person and online made for a very relaxed way for my son to write and edit his essay.”
—Dan’s parents, Newton, MA

“When my daughter’s first choice school sent her acceptance letter, they made a special point of praising her essay. The Admissions Director actually quoted from the essay and said how much she liked it!”
—Sue’s mom, Worcester, MA

“We spent most of October nagging Ryan to get the application process going, but he figured that the Common Application would be simple. He was panicked to discover every school also required additional paperwork and extra essays. It was a relief to find College Crunch Consulting. With help from Anita and Judy, Ryan finished the process by Thanksgiving!”
—Ryan’s father, Acton, MA

“Judy helped to jump start Nate’s essay writing process by getting to know him as a person. After hearing about his activities and interests, she and Nate brainstormed topics for the essays that highlighted all of his strengths. Working on his resume with Anita helped him organize and focus his many significant high school extracurricular and volunteer achievements. We think this was key to his admissions into very competitive colleges.”
—Nate’s parents, Wayland, MA

I worked with Anita and Judy while attending boarding school. I thought that it would be an impossible task undertaking this process long distance. Anita and Judy rose to the challenge. We completed the resume and essays over phone, fax, and email. They even coached me with the interview. I got in everywhere! Thank you!”
