How can we possibly do justice to all the benefits we received from working with College MatchPoint? Lisa, Bob, and their outstanding crew helped our student and our family at each point of the process. Their expertise, compassion, and astounding ability to motivate and work through ANY difficulty is unparalleled. Our student gained confidence and valuable experience through interactions with the staff and their commitment to a process that brings results. As parents, we were able to call Lisa with any questions or trepidations, and she was unfailingly gracious, knowledgeable, and helpful. We worked with another college consultant with our first child, and the process was nowhere near the wonderful experience we had with College MatchPoint. We sing their praises whenever the opportunity arises. The funny thing is that many of the people we tell about College MatchPoint already know how fabulous they are—either by reputation or through working with them. Thank you, College MatchPoint!!

From the initial assessment of my son’s talents and interests to the suggestions of colleges to consider, through the writing of essays and a lot of advice along the way, the team at College MatchPoint was amazing. I can’t tell you how comforting it was to know that I wasn’t responsible for trying to figure all of it out myself and potentially miss an opportunity or deadline.
The essay writing sessions were so valuable. My son was guided by people knowledgeable of the college admissions process and what makes candidates stand out to admissions officers. They did a great job of helping him highlight multiple areas of his interests, accomplishments and talents in appropriate ways.

The smartest thing we did to help our daughter find the right college was to hire College MatchPoint.

Great advice and guidance on timelines and type of action needed to be taken by student (finding additional leadership opportunities, when to look for internship, when and where to seek PSAT and SAT tutoring, when to start college essays and applications)
AMAZING help and support with college essay writing process!!!!
— Nancy Guilloteau, Austin, TX
The College Match Point team took a great deal of stress out of all facets of the college application process. I really valued the opportunity for my child to be autonomous in the process, the support identifying schools and the help with essay writing, as well as the flexibility with scheduling and endless cheerleading! They have helped us get two kiddos into colleges that fit them well and we will be coming back next year with our third and last college applicant.

We really liked the direct communication that you had with our student. Taking us, the parents, out of that part of the process meant that we didn’t have to nag him about it. He was responsible for his relationship with you and managing his application process. This was such a relief.
— Tracy Henneke, Austin, TX
Essay writing assistance was so helpful and the results were outstanding. It really keeps the parents from having to nag the student all the time — it keeps the peace in the family during a stressful time.
Resume assistance — helping us brainstorm to ensure all activities and awards were captured and your expertise on format is SO incredibly helpful.
Creating a list of schools - Lisa and Bob are extremely knowledgeable about which schools are a good fit for the student, not only in terms of major, but also in terms of personality.
Reviewing apps and answering questions — I had a million questions and Alexis and Lisa were both so patient and helpful.
— Julie Henderson, Austin, TX
College MatchPoint provided insight, persistence and savvy advice for our son. They were able to create a college list to match his learning needs and personality.
In fact, he got into all of the schools to which he applied. I continually refer College MatchPoint to my Bay Area co-workers.

Essay coaching was great! Individualized one-on-one attention and flexible hours in a low stress “think tank” environment, made it possible for our daughter to be inspired to write college essays that were well composed, authentic, and interesting to read. Highly recommend!
— Yolanda Mares, Salado, TX
Lisa was the absolute most important asset to my college application process! She helped me come up with great essay topics through many phone/email/text/in person conversations and a prolonged effort to get to know me and my family really well!
We love Lisa! She was so fun to work with and did a great job motivating me throughout the long process of applying to college. And now, thanks to Lisa, I’m heading off to freshman year at my top choice school!
