Marcy Hamilton


“My kids attended public schools where the number of kids they were responsible for overwhelmed the guidance counselors, and Marcy was always available to answer questions and provide personalized support. Her knowledge, availability and vigilance during the application process resulted in two highly successful college graduates...on from Penn and one from Cal. need I say more?"

“Our two boys couldn't be more different.  One was a student athlete with exception grades and test scores, a myriad of interests, and no idea where he wanted to go, or what he wanted to study.  The other, who struggles with dyslexia, and predictably had mixed school success, thought he knew just what he wanted to do and where he wanted to go.  Both boys "clicked" with Marcy, enjoyed the process, expanded their thinking, felt significantly less stressed about the decisions, and ultimately had successful outcomes.  We recommend Marcy without reservation.”

“It is hard for me to believe, but my sons and I have been working with Marcy for over ten years and I still have one more son to go!  Marcy has been instrumental in helping my four, eventually, five sons, with the arduous college process.  Instead of having one more thing to nag your kids about; once you turn the process over to Marcy, there is no need to worry or nag.  The kids have such a great rapport with Marcy and she is able to individualize the process for each child.  Each of my sons have chosen a school that is unique to them and by having the opportunity to work with Marcy over the period of a few years, she is able to get to know their individual personalities and help suggest colleges that would be the best fit. It has been a pleasure to work with Marcy; and I look forward to having her help me with my fifth son as well!”

“Marcy Hamilton is the most compassionate, well-informed and motivational college counselor that an aspiring college student could ever hope to work with. From strategically helping to choose colleges to visit to carefully advising a student how to choose among great options, Marcy is an engaged and invaluable mentor. She worked tirelessly with me for a year and a half and together we discovered not only the best colleges for me but also how to prepare my applications in order to give me the best chances at being admitted. I ended up at the school of my dreams and will be forever grateful for Marcy's guidance!”

"Before I met with Marcy, I was overwhelmed by the process of applying to college. But after our first meeting, I felt completely ready and capable to tackle the applications. The best part about working with Marcy was that she took the time to learn who I was, and helped me find the school that was the best fit. I couldn't have been more happy with my choice!"
