WHAT ARE FAMILIES SAYING:
Marisela answered all the questions I had through the college application process. She helped me think of topics for my essays and gave me advice on what the colleges wanted to see.
Santa Clara University
Marisela made me feel more confident going into college and not feeling like I've done something wrong.
California State University, Monterey Bay
Marisela is very professional in her work. She personally takes care of the admission process.
University of California, Santa Cruz
Marisela was friendly, approachable, easy to talk to, and knowledgeable.
I got into almost every college I applied to and was extremely satisfied with the experience. I will definitely encourage others to do this because it made the whole application process so much easier.

Marisela has been a lifesaver for our family. Within 30 minutes, she got more out of my son about his interests and college preferences than I had gotten in years. She and Camden worked hard, came up with twelve schools to which he applied, and he was accepted at nine of them, including at least two of his top choices.

Marisela Gomez is highly knowledgeable, personable and connected immediately with Olivia. Marisela has experience with college admissions and was very hands-on with direction, expectations and next steps. Because of our partnership with Marisela, Olivia was accepted by 7 of her 8 college choices and is now in her second year, the second semester with Gonzaga University's Nursing Program.

Marisela truly understands the admissions process and knows about a lot of colleges; as such, she is a remarkable guide to the college choosing process! 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 has also continued to act as our admissions leader, fielding panicked calls and reducing worries over interesting campus tours and admissions office phone calls.
We highly recommend Marisela Gomez for College Admissions counseling and crystal ball reading!
Saint Mary's College
I wasn't sure what to expect when I saw a flyer at our local library about a workshop on the college admissions process and financial aid, but as soon as I walked in a met Marisela, I knew I was in the right place. From the moment she began her presentation, I could tell she had the experience, background and knowledge to help our granddaughter with the very daunting college admissions and financial aid process.
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.
Marisela's expertise and vast knowledge of the entire process made what can be a stressful and deadline driven time, relatively easy and stress-free since we followed the detailed and comprehensive plan she created. One of the keys to our granddaughter's success in the application process was Marisela's help and guidance in drafting and preparing her personal statements/essays. Marisela's expertise in this area was tremendous in giving our granddaughter the tools to submit a well written and persuasive personal statement/essay that allowed her personality, talents and natural gifts shine through. I would recommend Marisela to anyone who has a college-bound child!

Marisela's advice regarding extracurricular activities in our daughter's jr year was very helpful. With this advice, our daughter was able to explore and find a community service endeavor that resonated with her. As an added benefit, this activity ultimately became the focus of several of our daughter's college application essays.
