I'm ever so grateful to Ms. Ingerson and Dr. M for providing me their resources and support, for encouraging me to think reflectively and introspectively, and for building my confidence in my own ability to communicate effectively and efficiently, lessons I will take with me to college and beyond.
I highly recommend Blue Stars. I love the approach that Dr. M and Helen take – they helped my son think through his interests, suggested opportunities, set goals, and continually challenged him to do better.
It goes without saying that Dr. M's wisdom, encouragement and deft life-coaching played a major part in our daughter's Swarthmore success, and I’d like to give credit where credit is due. I really think our daughter responded to Dr. M as a teacher, mentor and [...]
Thank you so much for all your help with my college applications. Your advice always pinpointed the exact weaknesses in my essays and help me turn them into strengths. Thank you for giving me the "insider perspective" on the college application process, always keeping me [...]
From the initial school searching process to revising and polishing my supplements to last minute Common App activities list anxieties, Dr. M and Laura's help made my college application process much less stressful and much more enjoyable. My supplements and common app essay wouldn't be nearly [...]
When I first started working with Dr. M at the end of sophomore year, I was quite skeptical of college counseling and was afraid of being forced into a mold. Dr. M completely shattered these misgivings. Rather than telling me what to do/who to be, [...]
After two unsuccessful attempts applying to graduate school, I reached out to Dr. M and her team to guide me through the process in a more prepared and professional manner. I worked closely with Laura, who not only provided me with supplemental materials that I [...]
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 [...]
I recommend Blue Stars with my full enthusiasm! Dr. M has been coaching my daughter since she was a freshman in high school. In the past 3 years, not only had my daughter had regular one-on- one meetings with Dr. M for her academic work [...]
Whenever the name of my favorite mentor during high school, "Dr. M," is mentioned, two words immediately come to mind: dedicated and determined. Never did she give up on me, even after more than several drafts of the same essay or while we were working [...]
If I had to narrow it down to one word describing Dr. M, it probably would be dedicated. Who else would work tirelessly just for the benefit of her students? Without Dr. M, I have absolutely no doubt that the whole college application process would [...]
From the moment that I met Amy (or shall I say Dr. M), I knew that she was someone special. To say she is the most thorough, hardworking, and tenacious person that I've ever met would be an understatement. She is willing to stay up [...]
I started working with Amy pretty early on in the game, around the summer of ’10. I don’t even know where to begin to praise her work. The first time I met her, she was extremely confident in her ability to get me to where [...]
