We were moving from San Francisco to New York and had no idea of how the school admissions worked in NYC. Admit NY really helped us through the process and our daughter ended up getting admission to her top choice school. They were very responsive and always willing to patiently answer our questions and that took away a large part of our anxiety with the whole admissions process.

We loved building a great relationship/friendship with our Admit NY point person. She transitioned from advisor to friend and cared about our son's opportunities like he was her own. I could tell that Admit NY took the time to learn about our family and cared about our child's results. Really cared. Also, they were there to help us. Once we started working with them, our anxiety levels decreased immeasurably. Great people at Admit NY.
