“Your patience and promptness is something that we admire. Now she has the task of making a hard choice because each university that has accepted her (Yale, Princeton, MIT, Caltech, Stanford, Columbia, Brown, Johns Hopkins, Penn, Dartmouth) has its own merit and standing.”

“We as a family, with gratitude, thank you for all the encouragement and support you provided our daughter to navigate the college admission process.  Your patience and promptness is something that we admire. Now she has the task of making a hard choice because each university that has accepted her (Yale, Princeton, MIT, Caltech, Stanford, Columbia, Brown, Johns Hopkins, Penn, Dartmouth) has its own merit and standing. At this time she appears to lean towards Yale. Personally, I would have chosen Johns Hopkins for its value (full ride scholarship of 45K annually). Once again, I thank you for your guidance and expertise.”

“I was very blessed to find someone who could explain to me what all of those questions meant, how I could found their answers, and, more important, to find a friend who helped me to not giving up during my way. I was accepted to Harvard, Yale, Princeton, CalTech, Penn, Dartmouth, and Cornell.”

“I am Brazilian and, for someone who is not American, going through the application process is a big deal. Not only everything is totally new, but also I was not used to having so many personal questions together. So, I was very blessed to find someone who could explain to me what all of those questions meant, how I could found their answers, and, more important, to find a friend who helped me to not giving up during my way. I was accepted to Harvard, Yale, Princeton, CalTech, Penn, Dartmouth, and Cornell. Working with Wes was for sure a really important factor in all my acceptances, because he was able to, as only few people can, help me to discover two important things: the person I would show in my application and the force that was in myself, my family and my friends, and would help me to keep going on.”

“Ellie, where do we begin? The first time our daughter came home from meeting with you, she said simply, “I love Ellie.” It only got BETTER from there. I’m not exaggerating. You are magic.”

“Ellie, where do we begin? The first time our daughter came home from meeting with you, she said simply, ‘”I love Ellie.”‘ It only got BETTER from there. I’m not exaggerating. You are magic. I’m not sure I can think of a time when the distance between how much a kid tends to be stressed over something and how much she actually was, was greater. (There is probably some correcting needed in that last sentence, but I’ll move on as I’m so excited to tell you more). The whole process of writing the college app was actually something she looked forward to doing on her own! She was happy, proud, a better writer, and her parents came out glowing in this!! We didn’t have to say a word. You have our most resounding endorsement to keep doing this forever. Pitch perfect is RIGHT. Thank you and thank you again!! I have a feeling she will continue to intersect your world. We are indebted.”

“Dear Wes, I want to express to you how thankful I am for your encouragement, advice, and most importantly, your generosity.”

“Dear Wes, I want to express to you how thankful I am for your encouragement, advice, and most importantly, your generosity. I consider myself extremely lucky to have met you, let alone to have worked with you. My mom puts it well when she says I seek your approval more than hers! When I draft an email, I think, ‘“How would Wes format this?”’ When I sit down to write an essay, I recount your reflection methods. You and your kind nature have left an indelible impact on me, and I am grateful.”

“Thank you Wes, Momo, and Ellie, With your valuable guidance, G’s smarts, hard work, and a large amount of luck, my daughter has an outstanding group of colleges from which to use from (Yale, Princeton and Stanford).”

“I’m going to Brown!  BROWN!!  BROWN!!!!  I couldn’t have done it without you!  From the first words I wrote for my essay, to the moment I clicked “submit,” you were by my side, every step of the way.  I am so grateful for everything that you did to help me, from guiding me to write the most beautiful essay I could have written, to making sure everything was absolutely perfect in my application – thank you for everything.  Now I am going to my dream school!!  Thank you with all my heart.”

“Dear Momo, Thank you for all your help with my college applications. Without a doubt, working with you has been one of the greatest learning experiences of my 12 years of schooling.”

“Dear Momo, Thank you for all your help with my college applications.  Without a doubt, working with you has been one of the greatest learning experiences of my 12 years of schooling.  It was the most introspective, thought-provoking, challenging – and of course, rewarding – undertaking ever.  I learned so much about myself – my dreams and aspirations, what I’m good at, what makes me exited, and the ways I want to grow in college and beyond. Without your guidance, I doubt whether I would have been admitted to my dream school. I know for certain that, without your help, I would not have been able to submit an application nearly as strong as what I submitted with your help. I am thrilled to be going to Wharton next year and am so grateful for everything that you did to make this possible.”

“Upon meeting Wes for the first time, it was instantly obvious that he is one of the kindest, warmest people I’d ever met.”

– Student, Bennington College, Class of 2017 (Presidential Scholarship)

“Upon meeting Wes for the first time, it was instantly obvious that he is one of the kindest, warmest people I’d ever met. During my senior year of high school, I started out rather afraid of the college application process. I had no idea what to write in my Personal Essay and supplements, so I went to Wes hoping for some direction and inspiration. Within our first session together, my perspective on the application process changed, 180º! Wes inspired me to look deep into myself and write about what makes me feel, what makes me think, what makes me wonder and be creative. He simply prompted me to talk and reflect on what I care about. The way in which he did this was so insightful, worded so honestly and artfully; but he also left all the power to me, so that the essays would be completely my own. He made the application process an enjoyable and educational experience for me. He also asked me questions that helped me figure out which college was truly the right match for me. And now, here I am with a Presidential Scholarship to Bennington College — happy, inspired, and very thankful. (Hard to be laconic when talking about such a great person!)”

“Wes is one of the landmark people in my life. My final year of high school was a swirling period of transformation and growth, and Wes was there at the kickoff.”

– Student, The University of Chicago, Class of 2015

“Wes is one of the landmark people in my life. My final year of high school was a swirling period of transformation and growth, and Wes was there at the kickoff. He nudged me in the right directions without dictation and asked the best, most difficult questions without my feeling uncomfortable. The college application process was exhilarating at times when many other students were groaning; Wes made writing the essays beautifully cathartic and worthwhile, providing invaluable insight and suggestion every step of the way.

“But Wes was more than a terrific college counselor who helped me get into the right school … much more. He became a unique teacher, mentor, and friend in the sense that he wasn’t a part of my in-school life, nor was he a parent or peer. I can talk about life, the universe, and everything with him — literature, love, family, philosophy. There will always be a place for Wes in my future.”

“Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!  Your incredible team was essential to the success of our eldest son’s early admission to Harvard and our daughter’s early admission to Brown.  Our youngest daughter in 9th grade already loves working you through Passion Starter as well!  We tell all of our friends about you and how you made navigating the college application process as pain- and worry-free as it could possibly be for the most worrisome family there is.  It’s such a relief to know that a real expert is working with your children and that we can let go of the reigns and not worry about anything. You answered all our questions promptly, you were always there for us to shine a light, and with your guidance, we were secure and confident.  Your knowledge of the admissions process is remarkable, but more than that, it was an incredible experience to watch our children grow – not only as writers, but as people – while working with you.  They were always talking about what you had said or suggested.  But that’s just us – wait until you hear how our children rave about you!”
