Testimonials

I wholeheartedly and unequivocally recommend Polaris College Counseling to any student who finds themselves in the muddy waters of the college application process. I believe that even the most accomplished students can greatly benefit from the mentorship of an experienced, kind, intelligent, and extremely knowledgeable college counselor like Alice.

Stanford Admit

Throughout this process, she also used the essay prompts to help me dig deeper into myself and become a better-rounded person, for she could always find the gem in every little story that I shared. My family and I were both super surprised and thrilled when I got into my dream school MIT. I could not have done it without Alice’s guidance, and I am grateful to have such an amazing mentor.
