With their experience and expertise, College MatchPoint took a process that was completely overwhelming and made it much easier to understand and complete. The team helped my daughter refine her applications and essays, making sure all were aligned and the best that they could be. I am sure this was instrumental in helping my daughter receive an acceptance to every school she applied to. She is now attending University of Texas, McCombs School of Business. We could not have done it without them!

A very organized service for letting your teenager work through the college application process to find the best match for the teen. My daughter benefited from the essay development the most. They helped her organize her thoughts, brainstorm, set deadlines, and knock out her essays in her own words and thoughts without a mother/daughter battle. They took the whole process off my plate and gave it to her, which reduced the stress a family goes through in the college application process. They answered any questions I had very promptly but I tried to stay as hands-off as I could. In the end, she got her dream school early decision and we couldn’t be more delighted.
