Ferah has coached both of my children as they were getting ready to start applying to colleges. We didn’t realize until then how daunting the process was, and how many moving parts it included. It was definitely a very overwhelming time for both of them, however Ferah was able to successfully have them apply to the colleges they were interested in. She provided so many questionnaires and checklists to help them narrow down their choices, guided them and mentored them through the process, offered many opportunities for them to drop in and get support while filling out forms and writing essays, and simply made it possible to do something that would have taken so much more time and effort to make happen on their own. They are both now attending the college of their choice, and are very happy where they have ended up. Ferah turned a very challenging prospect into something achievable, and we are all so very grateful for her caring help and broad expertise in the field. -Proud Parent H.S.
Launchphase2 has been such a helpful tool during my senior year. Not only was my coach able to help me determine the best fit colleges for me, but her help on college applications was indispensable. From brainstorming essay topics to editing essays, the help I received allowed me to stay composed during a very stressful time in my life. I would definitely recommend Launchphase2 to anyone; their service, expertise, and support are priceless.

Thank you so much for everything you have done for our daughter and her future. Your knowledge, skills, patience and dedication in assisting with the whole college processes are amazing. The journey of helping her to figure out where her passions lie and focusing on the schools where her major existed was so key to picking great schools to apply to. Encouraging her to apply to reach schools and not fearing rejections or uncertainty. All of the information and feedback was invaluable. You also gave her an unbelievable set of life lessons that will be with her throughout her life. Thank you for the many, many hours you have given to her future. I will be forever grateful for your generosity and spirit.
