"Laura and her team have been wonderful to work with on so many different fronts. Laura herself did an amazing job working with both of my children to push them to develop individualized essays for the Common App that truly showcased their backgrounds and who they are as a person. She asked them thoughtful and probing questions that helped them develop essays, written entirely in their own words, that really reflected them. My experience working with the company has been nothing but great. Their professionalism, experience, and support have been amazing. I have nothing but great things to say about the experience working with them." - L.J.  

"Laura and her staff were always helpful and flexible when scheduling sessions with my busy son. With the help of Laura's tutors, he raised his ACT score by five points! Laura helped my son brainstorm ideas in order to write a very personal Common App essay. We love everything about LGC! Thank you!" - L.H. 

"I recently used Laura George Consulting for MBA Application Prep, and received an admission to a top-five program due to Laura's outstanding help. Laura helped me navigate the whole admissions process from start to finish (which spanned several months), offered me valuable advice and insight, and helped me take my essays to another level!
Laura is very personable and patient, and provides excellent client service. Laura is quick to respond to emails and makes an effort to set meetings that are convenient to her client's deadlines and schedule. I would recommend Laura to any student looking for college or graduate school consulting services." - J.N. 

"Highly recommend Laura George. She worked with my son helping him identify where he needed to concentrate his efforts to increase his test scores. She also helped guide him through the essay process which gave him the confidence he needed. She is a great resource and really cares about the student." S.M.

Highly recommend Laura George Consulting for ACT prep and essay writing services for your student. I truly believe that because of the services they provide and assistance our son received - it made a huge impact on his ACT score. The essay prep also provided him with the extra support he needed to constructively write his college essay. The staff at Laura George Consulting is extremely professional and are thorough in their communication. We had a great experience with this company and wouldn't hesitate to send someone here for these services! - A.B.
