"Marcea provided me with useful information when I did my university search. She talked me through requirements of the US common app and supplements, as well as gave me constructive feedbacks on my essays. She responded promptly to my emails, contacted the university to check on my application on my behalf. She was always available when I needed a quick chat to discuss my university options and my concerns about the application. As an experienced university advisor, Marcea understood the pressure on high school seniors to perform well in demanding AP classes, complete university applications and financial aid forms on time, and do extra-curricular activities. She was always very supportive, sympathetic, understanding, and assuring. I appreciated her patience with my questions and her general enthusiasm for higher education and doing what is best for students. She cared about me as an individual with hope, dream and anxiety. She did her best to enable me to fulfil my potential and have a rewarding university experience and career. I would absolutely recommend Marcea to any students, especially international students, who are looking to study in the US and the UK. I ultimately choose to go to King’s College London, made lots of friends along the way, and graduated with a First Class degree and a job offer in London."
"Marcea helped me find the colleges that I would be a best fit for. She prepared all of the necessary documentation, allowing me to very easily fill out my application to US and UK colleges. Throughout the process, she was very supportive of any decision I took. Most importantly, Ms. E. highlighted the importance of finding a college that was a good fit on both an academic and a personal level. I really value the countless hours she spent discussing the pros and cons of certain choices. In addition, I was impressed by Ms. E’s ability to adapt to different countries’ university systems. Applying to both UK and US schools was effortless, as a result of her guidance. I would highly recommend Ms. E. as a college consultant. Her keen ability to match students with colleges is unparalleled, and her love and passion for her job truly shows. With her help, I was accepted to Stanford University, and Princeton University."
"Marcea, from day one provided me with the help and support I needed to find the university that was right for me. Feeling overwhelmed and not knowing where to start, Marcea, who is an experienced college advisor, explained the different apps and websites needed for both US and UK universities and what requirements were needed. Throughout the process Marcea would respond quickly to email, improve my essays and filled out the required documents. With the pressure of doing IB in high school, Marcea was reassuring, helpful, sympathetic and understood what was needed to be done. I am grateful for her help and time from answering my constant questions to meetings. I would definitely recommend her to any student who is applying to university. Without her help and dedication, I would not be completing the degree that I enjoy at Bath Spa university."
"Ms. E is one of the most friendly, supportive, and adaptable counsellors that I have had the opportunity to interact with, both in a formal and casual context. Despite only meeting her on my first day of senior year, I immediately felt comfortable sharing my personal issues and concerns with her and always looked forward to dropping into her office to chat. When the notoriously stressful first semester of senior year rolled around, she was constantly by my side, whether to read essays and provide constructive criticism or to just check-in with a quick email or “staircase conversation” on the way to class. While some of my friends at university have told me how their counselors were not very receptive to them not following all feedback given, Ms. E was always very open to me choosing my own path with my essays and making executive decisions. Her advice always felt genuine and she ensured to actively encourage me while never over-inflating my ego! Towards the end of senior year, as I contemplated which university to commit to, she continued to meet with me and my family and helped us weigh all factors to come to a decision that I maintain with confidence is right for me. Ms. E taught me to really enjoy the whole college application process, which is a large reason why I continue to remain engaged with my juniors as they approach the same period of their senior year. In my opinion, any student or other potential college applicant who has the chance to work with Ms. E should definitely pounce on the opportunity!"
"Ms. Eckhardt was a driving force behind my success in high school. She guided and supported me through a difficult personal experience in high school and helped me to stay motivated towards applying for colleges and finishing my senior year with good grades. She was always available to discuss any worries or questions I had, and never made my problems seem insignificant, no matter how small they were. Once I decided to choose a college in the USA, Ms. Eckhardt dedicated herself to helping me with my SAT, letters of recommendation and my application. She sat with me often, helping me make lists of colleges and deciding which were the best fit for me. As a result of these discussions, I decided Florida State University was a perfect fit for me. I am extremely grateful for Ms. E’s unwavering patience and kindness towards me, which led to deciding on a university which I love and where I am excited to continue my education. Without her, I would never have been so confident in my decision on a university and in my own abilities."
"I came into my final year of high school feeling extremely unprepared, uneasy, and nervous about my university plans. With only a few months to go until I would start applying for university programs, I still did not know what exactly was expected of me, what all my options were, and how I would have to prepare for the coming process. Ms. E and I spent countless hours discussing the possible routes I could take based on my academic interests, and through this I was able to identify the priorities I had for my university course and lifestyle. In addition to guiding me through the various steps of applying to multiple countries and programs, she pushed me to follow up with each university, and to leave no uncertainties with any matter at hand. With assessments, deadlines, and exams coming up, I was relieved that the application process went smoothly and quickly, allowing me to focus on my studies. Looking back, I am beyond thankful for Ms. E’s guidance and patience throughout the entire process. Ultimately, I was accepted into the university of my top choice. Although I had not originally considered the University of Warwick as an option, I realized it was a perfect fit through Ms.E’s advice and encouragement."
