Project Description

Seeking the guidance of Blue Stars Admissions Consulting was the best thing I could’ve done for my child, who will be heading to his dream school this fall!

Working with Blue Stars was such a positive experience and the admissions results exceeded all of our expectations. Of the thirteen colleges my son applied to, he was accepted to eleven schools, including ALL FIVE of the highly selective, reach schools he applied to. In addition, six colleges awarded him merit scholarships ranging from $24,000 to $80,000 over the course of four years. Simply put, we were blown away.

There is no way to completely eliminate the stress involved in the highly competitive college application process, but Blue Stars reduced the pressure by demystifying the process, keeping my child on track and by taking on a positive, calm and reassuring attitude. What was initially a daunting process became manageable when broken up into chunks. Mini-deadlines along the way meant that my child devoted enough time to all aspects of the application. And, Blue Stars pushed him in a number of ways: to be introspective about his life to date, to articulate his future goals and to keep refining his writing until it was just right. My son worked extremely hard -for months- on his applications and greatly reduced time spent on his extracurricular activities temporarily in order to put forth all of his effort. In the end, he had a strong sense of accomplishment for having completed the process to the best of his ability.

I sought out Blue Stars Admissions Consulting right before my child’s senior year. If there is one piece of advice I would give to other parents, it is to start the process as early as possible.
