We were moving from San Francisco to New York and had no idea how 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.
