Testimonial from Parent of Student Accepted to Princeton for Early Admissions (Class of 2019)

"Ann Lee is the best college counselor I have ever met. She is very professional, responsible, smart, passionate and sincere. From the very beginning, she spent a lot of time communicating with us for knowing all aspects of my kid. She made complete senior year plan with every detail steps and schedules. Her superb execution ability works perfectly for my kid, who is an immature and lack of self-control high school student.  Ann gave detailed and in-depth guidance on my kid’s high school course selection, standard test preparing, academic activities and extracurricular activities arrangement. On the application stage, she helped on college selection, essays writing - from topics to grammar and rhetoric, she even went through each detail application form with us!  She is truly a guarantee for the quality and progress of the entire application process. Ann has amazing energy and wisdom. She often immediately identify varies problems or potential issues in applications and give perfect solutions. She really provided completed support for the entire college application process, even after my kid submitted the applications, she gave interview guide, follow-up application updates, etc. Her guidance covers every single steps of applications ahead of each times. Driven by Ann's comprehensive, accurate expertise and extremely perfect communication skills, we the parents and kid can actively cooperate and smoothly finished the application. As a result, my kid got early admission of Princeton, the dream school. We really appreciate and admire Ann's positive energy and the extraordinary ability for inspire students enthusiasm. I am very grateful to meet Ann, and have her as my kid's college counselor!"
