“Thank you for helping our daughter improve her test scores, GPA and to write awesome essays! We especially appreciated your guidance with the college list. We were pleased that she received so many acceptances and scholarships, to colleges where she would thrive. Thank you for reducing our stress during this stressful time; the weekly reports and gentle follow ups really helped. Our daughter can’t wait to start college, and we are very proud of her. ”

As the parent of a high school senior that just was accepted to and received merit scholarships from all the private and public schools to which she applied, I highly recommend Ferah and her team. Ferah made a difference by explaining what my daughter needed to do each year (college tests, community service, leadership, school work, essays and applications, college emails and visits and independent study abroad), helped her prioritize her efforts and provided timely follow-up, especially critical for the college essays.  Collectively, this reduced our family's "college stress" to a manageable level and kept my daughter focused and in charge of the college process.  She even told her school counselor that she "felt good about the college application process and was pretty sure she would get into her top schools."  Ferah's deep understanding of the entire process has informed my parenting of both my children, one gifted and the other, a high achieving high school student with learning differences.

If you have a child that is approaching that time when college is in the near future I would highly recommend Ferah Aziz and launchphase 2 to get you on the right track and keep you there through the confusing process of decision making and choices leading up to a final decision on a college to attend. We struggled through the process on our own with our first child. For our second child we used launchphase2, what a difference it made. Ferah laid out a plan from start to finish for our daughter that included assignments to keep her on track. Ferah also helped to take much of the confusion out of deciding which schools were the best fit and the ones that should probably left off of the list. In the end our daughter chose a school that we know she will be happy with and one we can afford! Thank you Ferah for having the knowledge, skills and abilities to guide us to a decision we are all comfortable with!
