My family is very pleased with the assistance provided by Marylou Marcus. We knew a New England boarding school for the academic excellence, but were unfamiliar with the large number of schools. She provided us an excellent list of schools to review that were a good fit for our son’s personality. The application process was involved, but she was able to keep both parents and son on track. My son is excited about attending his dream school next year.

Marylou’s patient, thoughtful and through counsel made a potentially overwhelming process organized and successful. Our daughter was accepted at her first choice of schools and we look forward to this wonderful opportunity. Marylou knows her stuff. She is a great listener and was available for all of our questions and concerns. Thank you Marylou!

Marylou worked with both our daughters and thoroughly prepared them for the interview and application process. She spent time getting to know our children, and through her extensive knowledge of the schools and their cultures, was able to recommend the right schools. Marylou’s experience and insight proved indispensible for our family during our school search and we would highly recommend her consultative services.

Marylou gave us the insight, information and skills we needed to undertake the boarding school application process enjoyably and with huge success. Her help at each stage of the process made all the difference. She helped us select the schools that were unquestionably the best match, and she acted as invaluable sounding board and source of information and guidance throughout the experience. With her experience and insight, we had a resoundingly positive experience.

Our family had the good fortune to work closely with Marylou Marcus this past year as we evaluated independent High School options for our oldest son. As you might imagine we felt that this was a slightly daunting task, and we wanted to ensure that we applied to, and were accepted to the schools of our choice. From the beginning Marylou was able to apply a steady dose of advice and logic that proved to be incredibly valuable as our decision choices were narrowed to schools that would provide the best fit for our son. New to the process, Marylou was with our family from day one through our final March 10th acceptance day. Marylou was readily accessible and responsive to our son and family as we tried to answer the multitude of questions and options. In hindsight, choosing to engage with Marylou was a very worthwhile decision that we will leverage again as we repeat this process this fall with our daughter. Thank you Marylou for a seamless, professional and straight forward consulting engagement. Most importantly, with your advice and guidance, our son had many High School choices.

Marylou, you provided valuable input from our very first meeting when you met with our twin sons and began coaching them on comfortable ways to recognize and present their unique interests and talents. You helped us narrow the field of school options to a comfortable number of appropriate matches. Throughout the application process, from developing an approach for standardized test preparation, to visits, interviews and in considering essay content, you provided positive energy and encouragement. Our boys’ were admitted to their top choice. We credit your direction and experience in helping them achieve that result.
