FUTUREWISE SUCCESS STORIES
Above all, we value the relationships we forge with our students and their families. Here is just some of the feedback we have received over the years.
"The process of picking schools and applying to colleges is one of the most important tasks that a parent and child will face in today’s extremely competitive environment. Jenn helped my daughter navigate this stressful time with competence, kindness and respect. She also empowered my daughter with the responsibility to meet her timeline for applications and guided her expertly with direction and demeanor in her essay writing. Parents, this is a very worthy investment!"

"I am so excited about all of my options, especially Georgetown! I just wanted to thank you again for all of your help. You were such a great resource, and I can't explain how much you helped me throughout the entire process! Thanks again."

"I wrote to you today because my long process of college/auditions finally come to a close. First, I want to thank you so much for being a great tutor and helping me achieve a 30 on the ACT. When I was sending in my scores, I felt very confident and comfortable because I was able to report my personal best. I could not have done it without you, your very helpful tutoring, and those practice Saturday exams....My top choice was Chapman ever since I started tutoring with you. I am happy to announce that I will be attending Chapman University for Violin Performance. My family and I were very worried about financial aid, but based on my GPA and ACT score, I was awarded the $20,000/year Chancellors Scholarship for 4 years. Again, thank you for the tutoring sessions because it gave me admission to universities and scholarships. I am so glad and blessed you were my tutor."

"I can't say enough great things about Jenn and Futurewise Consulting. My daughter was a senior, had great grades, test scores and extra curriculars. Just like every other parent of a high school student, I had heard about college entrance counselors, but I was a little doubtful as to the help they could offer my daughter at this point in her high school career. I was so wrong! I can't say enough about the benefits of having Jenn help my daughter negotiate the application process. From helping her narrow down schools based not only upon the prestige of a particular school, but the compatibility of the school for my daughter's needs and wants. She kept her on track in a helpful and encouraging way, kept the pressure to a minimum for both my daughter and myself, and became her confidant and friend in this very stressful process. My daughter got accepted to several schools. I believe especially that Jenn's help and guidance with my daughter's essays really tipped the scale for some of the schools, in that their acceptance letters specifically noted her essay, which is unusual! Many of my daughter's friends who had signed up with other college counselors did not enjoy the same experience as my daughter. I would wholeheartedly recommend Futurewise Consulting and Jenn without reservation. Thank you Jenn, you made this experience hopeful and joyful."

"I got my SAT scores back today and I just wanted to thank you so much for helping me maximize my potential. I achieved my goal (a goal that I didn't really even truly believe was possible...) and I couldn't have done it without you. Because of your tutoring, many new doors will be opened to me and thanks to you I'll have so many more opportunities! You are truly great at what you do and if any of my friends are looking for a good tutor, I won't hesitate to recommend you. Thank you so much for all of your help!"

"Our family has had an amazing experience using FutureWise. Obviously, every child is unique within a family, and though we already have two kids in two different universities in Southern California, when our youngest son began looking at colleges we knew he desired to look beyond where his siblings had gone before him. Plus, experience had taught us that college searches were not only time consuming but relationship straining and we felt we needed a bigger support base with a broader range of helping our son find a university that would fit him best. Jenn and Casey at FutureWise helped us navigate seeking schools and going thru the difficult application process. Their warm and professional personalities also gave our son the motivation he needed without pressure from us his parents. It is exciting now to see our son accepted into schools he might not have otherwise applied to. We highly recommend FutureWise. Details are taken care of with the dynamic help of these highly qualified professionals."

"I made the decision....Next year I will be at Berkeley! Thank you so much for all your help in the past months. I would have felt completely lost without you to help me with the deadlines, essays, and every other part of the application process. Also, thank you for talking out everything with me the other day. It really helped me clear my thoughts and realize where I wanted to go. I feel great about my decision and cannot wait to go to college!"
- Student from San Juan Capistrano
“You have gone so far above and beyond with your help and I truly appreciate it. I honestly do not know what I would have done without you, and you have been such an incredible resource! I know how much time and effort you have put into helping me and it really means a lot. I am forever indebted to you!”
- Student from Ojai
"I'd like to thank you for helping [me] out with the SAT last summer. It was a huge help! I got an 800 on the math, an 800 on the reading, and a 760 on the writing. I'm really happy with a 2360. Thanks again."
- Student from Coto de Caza
"As a parent I have learned that a college applicant that does not have the benefit of an informed, knowledgeable, competent, and caring independent college counselor is disadvantaged in today’s college admission process. There is too much to know, too many mistakes that can be made, and too much at stake. Not only would I give FutureWise very high marks in these areas, but most importantly, my daughter 'connected' with them, respected their opinions, followed their advice, and diligently did as she was asked. My daughter also benefited from their extraordinary attention to detail. The end result was a combination of the most compelling Common Application, supplemental applications, and essays possible. As a parent, that is all I could ask for. One piece of advice though—start early."

"I received acceptance into NYU and will now be attending there next year! I'm very excited and wanted to thank you so much for all you guys have done for me! Again, I'm super excited and couldn't have done it without you two so thank you!"
- Student from Laguna Beach
"Casey and Jenn have been meeting with my sophomore and are able to connect with her so well. I've tried to give advice about college but she views it as pressure. Hearing it from Jenn and Casey seems to strike a chord with my teenager."
- Parent from Newport Beach
"Applying to colleges is so stressful and confusing, and FutureWise really helped me calm down and get organized! My college application process went so smoothly with them, and I can't thank them enough!"
