Stressful, Overwhelming, and High-Stakes. Which Is Why We Have A Uniquely Different Approach To Supporting You.

Dr. Legatt helped me tremendously in the college admissions process!
Without her help, I wouldn’t have been able to get accepted to my dream school. She is beyond experienced and knowledgeable about everything that students need to know to get into their top schools. She is also very patient and kind. From the start, Dr. Legatt looked through parts of my application and gave me very insightful feedback. She gave me detail-oriented advice, and pointed out things I certainly couldn’t have improved on my own. She gave me very helpful feedback on my personal essay and supplement with constant rounds of edits that were very thorough. Dr. Legatt really helped me highlight my strengths. She is an amazing expert and I would recommend her services to anyone. Thank you so much Dr. Legatt!

“Dr. Aviva was a superb counselor- timely reply, very patient, and kind. She shared complete information, ideas, rationale and encouragement on my essays. You can discuss any idea with her. I feel the most valuable is when she guides me to think deeper, to explore my own interest. When needed, she used her contacts to get real and reliable information, provided timely feedback to me, and ensured that everything was correct. Going step by step with Aviva makes me feel at ease, even very motivated. Thanks to Aviva’s help, I am excited to attend Bryn Mawr College next year! I am full of thanks and moved. Very highly recommended!”

Dr. Aviva was extremely responsive, insightful, and gracious through this process. She guided me in putting my best foot forward in my application and I could not be happier with my result. Thank you so much Dr. Aviva, you’re the best!”
