I highly recommend Jo-Ann even if you are willing to do some of the work yourself. We were willing to work with our son to help him get recruited for soccer, but needed guidance for him on how to pick schools and submit effective applications. Jo-Ann stepped in and helped him select colleges that were a very good fit for him. They created a realistic timeline for completing the research, essays and applications. With Jo-Ann’s help and encouragement, he started on the essays in the summer, and applied to eight colleges in late November (early action). By January, he was admitted to all eight, with several offers of merit aid. We then had plenty of time to work on getting the best soccer offer and price possible. This has all been so exciting and positive for all of us! guidance has made the troublesome journey of college searching so much easier for me."
