Here’s what students are saying about working with Educational Consultant, Cindy Muchnick, M.A.

“Thank you so much for all of your help and support throughout this difficult college process. Without you, there is no way I would have been so on top of things. Your encouraging attitude paired with your dedication is truly inspirational. I couldn’t have done it without you! You’re the best.”

St. Margaret’s High School Senior, Class of 2011

“I just wanted to thank you very much for meeting with me. I really appreciate having your opinion on what I can do to better myself for colleges, and I loved hearing your ideas. Thanks again!!” Mitchell K.

Beckman High School , Class of 2010

“I wanted to thank you for all the advice you gave to my parents and me. Your insight into the college application and acceptance process was invaluable. I am happy to inform you of my acceptance to Chapman University. Your advice and encouragement back when I was on the wait list, ultimately helped me earn acceptance. You would be very happy to know I was granted the Dean Scholar award. Thank you again for all your help.” Shannon F.

Laguna Beach High School Senior

“Today I got some letters back! I was accepted to UCSB with a $6,000 renewable scholarship and to Chapman’s dance program with a $23,000 renewable scholarship!! ahhhhh!!!! Thanks :)”

Laguna Beach High School Student

“As a senior in high school I was organized, motivated, and interested in applying to several schools, but I lacked the essential understanding of the system of college application and selection. Cindy helped me focus my attention on the most important aspects of the applications, prioritize portions of the various applications, and better present my résumé and applications. Cindy’s ability to help me simplify the very complex procedure into a step-by-step strategy greatly decreased the stressfulness of the process. She also helped me plan my essay writing in a way that allowed me to write fewer, higher quality essays. One of the most valuable of Cindy’s contributions was the help she provided in revising my essays in a way that greatly improved the structure, grammar, and effect while maintaining my voice, tone, and theme of my composition. Cindy’s energy and enthusiasm allowed us to view the situation in a far more optimistic, less stressful way without losing the gravity and pragmatism required. I deeply appreciate all of her help.” Rachael G

Brown University, Class of 2006

“I got into Michigan!!!!!!!!! And sorry if I called you too late tonight, I am just SO excited! Thank you so much!”

Sage Hill Senior

“I got a scholarship to Vermont and Tulane. . . . I got into Washington . . . I got into NYU.”

Sage Hill Senior

“Thanks for helping me through this whole process. Your encouragement really added to the positive aspects of this application process. I appreciate all that you did to prompt me, and especially your editing of my essays. I will stay in touch with you to tell you my status when I hear back from the colleges. Thanks again!”

A student from Laguna Hills High School

“Hey Cindy – I got into Columbia!!!!!!! I am so excited! Thank you so much for everything!”

Sage Hill Senior

“Again thank you for your time. I can’t stress enough how thankful I am for you helping me through this. As I have said, I am very serious about going back to school, but still am nervous and scared. Your help is helping me feel much more assured that I can actually do this, and be myself again. Again, I can’t tell you how grateful I am that you are giving me so much of your time.”

Transfer student

“I got into Oxford Emory! Oh my gosh I’m so happy you don’t even know. Thank you so muuuch!!!!”
