Applying to college can be stressful and I had no idea where to begin. Shelley helped guide my initial research by suggesting a preliminary college list that worked for me. She knows colleges and she understands people—she is extremely intuitive and asks the right questions...Shelley helps students consider schools based on factors that will truly contribute to a happy and successful college experience. Thanks to her help, I ended up at a school that was a perfect fit for me, a school I hadn’t even heard of until she suggested it! She is so supportive, throughout the college application process and beyond. Her primary concern is each students’ success and happiness in their college environment, and this is what makes her such a wonderful consultant.

...Shelley Randles is an excellent college success partner. She brought me extra comfort and confidence in the essay portion of my applications. This allowed me to breathe easier and feel more at home where most students feel fear and terror. She played a large part in the choice and editing of my essay, and because of her I was accepted into Pitzer College, which is my dream school. She is a necessary piece to any student’s success, and I would strongly recommend the investment in her.

The whole college process would have been so confusing without the help of Shelley...She helped me every step of the way and I was able to get in to my #1 college.

...there are three prongs to your process, the college list, finding the right fit and the essay. It seems so simple. We all know it is fraught with angst. Your approach takes the angst out of it and puts parents and students at ease.
