My son applied to many schools we'd never heard of before, and these are schools that Marisela suggested we consider and that we visited and loved! She spent a lot of time with my son helping him with his essays, and given his acceptance rate, it enhanced his chances. Marisela made me feel at ease knowing that I would not have to learn everything myself to help our granddaughter through the process and fill in the gaps her high school didn't provide. Having Marisela help us through this was the best decision we made! She helped make an admissions plan including a realistic list of schools: both far reach and those with a good probability of acceptance. CAMDEN, STUDENT CAL POLY SAN LUIS OBISPO Marisela was friendly, approachable, easy to talk to, and knowledgeable.
