My college coach gave me excellent student success tips when I started college. I had a great college experience, graduated with a 4.0 GPA, and am now working in my dream career! I think launchphase2 is a wonderful program to help high school students in this way. Timely advice can make all the difference — it did for me.

Going through the college application process can be overwhelming and stressful. It is easy to miss steps, easy to overlook opportunities, and easy to make mistakes. Using the coaching services of launchphase2 will help students stay on track, make deadlines, make critical decisions, and produce an outstanding application that college administrators will notice.

Thanks to an amazing daughter and Ferah Aziz of launchphase2, I am the proud mom of a UPenn student who will be joining the class of 2021.  My daughter attended a high school with a weak college advising department.  We started working with Ferah when my daughter was a rising 10th grader because we felt at sea about how to navigate the very complicated waters of college admissions.  We got so much more from this decision than we were expecting.  Ferah helped my daughter focus on what her goals were, what college environments would be the best for her, and the way to make herself a standout to those colleges.  Ferah managed to keep her grounded in reality while also inspiring her to reach.   One of the amazing things Ferah did was help my daughter begin to build a resume that popped…whether it was advising her on growing the charity my daughter had started in her early teens, to suggesting internships and summer programs, to setting up informational meetings so my daughter could find out about schools or careers from people directly associated with them, Ferah always went the extra mile in a very creative and effective fashion. Most importantly, she listened to my daughter and tailored her advice specifically to her as an individual. My daughter got into several reach schools (though not  every single school she applied to), and a very broad array of schools that provided her with choices to make sure she could select a great fit.  We strongly urge anyone facing the daunting process of college admissions to make use of the helping hand that Ferah offers.  You will not regret it.  Oh, and start much earlier than you think!
