What others have experienced

SB, PARENT; NORWOOD, NEW JERSEY

We had the pleasure of working with Audrey for help with both of our daughters, and each one got into her dream college early decision! Of course we have already recommended her and absolutely will continue doing so, to friends and whoever else is facing the process. We liked her honesty, way of charging, keeping the girls involved and having their own work done, always prompt responses, keeping the motivation up - for students and parents both.

DF, PARENT; DEMAREST, NEW JERSEY

We engaged Audrey Kahn to work with our son on the recommendation of a friend. We were very cautious because we'd had a disappointing experience with a different counselor who worked with another of our children. What a difference! Audrey is unique. She is very knowledgeable (but willingly admits when she doesn't know something, and then researches it thoroughly); she is very intelligent (for example, her comments on essay drafts reflected thoughtful analysis and a fine education); she is very responsive (we never waited more than a day for a return call or email, and in fact usually received a reply within hours); she is very flexible (we appreciated Audrey's hourly rate structure because, in our experience, the more common flat rate for "one-size-fits-all" counseling is not in the best interest of the student or the family); she is very honest (trust is important when working with someone on an hourly basis, and we found Audrey's invoices to be impeccably accurate and fair); and, perhaps most importantly, Audrey takes the time to get to know her students and really CARES about them! We recommend Audrey Kahn without reservation, and regardless of the type of student who needs assistance and the level of college to which he or she is applying.

JKJ, STUDENT; MAHWAH, NEW JERSEY, UNIVERSITY OF DELAWARE CLASS OF 2013

Audrey, thanks to you I was accepted into my top school choices. Your valuable ideas and guidance truly set my application apart from other candidates. I could not have imagined going through the college admissions process without the support you gave me. Now I am thrilled with my decision to attend University of Delaware and off on an exciting new adventure in my life. I cannot thank you enough.

PP, PARENT; NEW YORK, NEW YORK

Two years ago, when I was trying to figure out how my creative, talented, brilliant and consistently underperforming child was ever going to get into a quality college, I contacted an old friend from high school who runs a very large college prep/testing service. She led me to Audrey, and the rest is happy history. Audrey immediately grasped what my child was all about and figured out how to build upon her strengths and strengthen her deficits. Penetrating through the miasma of the college application process, she broke down in clear steps what we needed to do in order to make sure our child got the attention that she otherwise might not have received. She held our collective family hand and went WAY overboard in making us feel that "THIS WILL HAPPEN.” Audrey Winter-Kahn superseded the role of counselor and became our daughter's friend and mentor. Fast forward: after several months of focused prep, our kid was accepted at six fantastic schools and wound up receiving very significant scholarship offers as well.

I unhesitatingly recommend Audrey to any parent who wants to give their child, whatever their particular profile might be, the best opportunity to succeed during a critical juncture in their lives.

BF, STUDENT; HAWORTH, NEW JERSEY

I went to Audrey to help me simplify the college process. I did not know where to start and needed someone to explain everything to me. Audrey was great in streamlining the process, working with my essays, and directing me towards the college choices that were right for me!
