Having shepherded our two daughters through the university application process, we thought that we were well equipped to maneuver through the process when our son was a high school senior. But we were amazed to see how the dynamics had changed and how much more complex the application process had become. Marilyn helped us to narrow down choices, look at universities differently,  and consider possibilities that we had not even thought of—in fact,  the school that our son ultimately chose was the very one that Marilyn suggested. Her useful, pragmatic approach about making the final choice after the acceptances are received was highly effective and very helpful. We are so grateful that Marilyn was able to analyze and interpret our son’s needs so accurately and match them to the appropriate university offerings. In today’s tough, competitive application process, Marilyn’s services are a calming yet empowering to both jittery students and bewildered parents. – Madeline Damkar, Hollister, California USA

 I was very impressed with the breadth of knowledge that the presenters had which was specific to the Swiss situation, whether it be expats wanting to study here or Swiss wanting to study abroad.  The small hints and pointers (and idiosyncrasies) of the different systems were also well-explained, as was the fact that there are all kinds of opportunities if you look for them and that it really ‘all depends’ on the individual case.  — International School Administrator

It was an excellent, well thought and well organized presentation. Thank you! …Your presentation gave me an insight on how to choose [my daughter]‘s next school in preparation for university. I have noticed that there were quite a few parents whose children were as young as mine. I suspect they wanted to understand how to position their children so they are not handicapped by the school system once they decide to apply for universities. —Rada Kovacevic, parent
