“Our family could not possibly be happier with Nicole and On My Way Consulting! Having a private college counselor removed me and my husband 100% from the stresses of the college application process, and allowed us to preserve our excellent relationship with our son (who is easily stressed out!). It was unbelievably helpful to have an expert telling our kid exactly what he needed to do and when, so we never had to nag him…not even once! Nicole was able to peak our son’s interest in schools that he turned down when WE recommended them. She made the process fun and enjoyable for our boy, and we are SO very grateful. Nicole is knowledgeable, kind, professional and has a keen understanding of the adolescent mindset. Our daughter is a freshman in high school and we have already booked her spot with On My Way Consulting, for February of her Junior year! I think that this service is worth every penny.”    – Ellen, parent

“Priscilla was instrumental in helping our granddaughter navigate the college application process. She provided excellent advice, helpful handouts and quality resources for financial aid. Working with her was seamless. She was very accessible for follow-up questions and her expansive knowledge of the academic options for students, combined with her candor and experience make working with her an exercise in success.”  – Karen, parent

“There is no way in hell I would’ve survived last year’s trials and deadlines without your assist and calm steady guidance, If it weren’t for your help, I would’ve torn my hair out. Do tell parents to get a notebook… it saved me.  That, and knowing you were there with us every step of the way.”     – Susan, parent 

“There are so many wonderful things about working with Priscilla — her darn near encyclopedia knowledge of the college admissions process, her thoroughness — but what we appreciated most is that she didn’t want to turn our son into something he wasn’t in order to gain acceptance into schools. She wanted our son to be seen for who he authentically is. It was his voice, his interests, his accomplishments. We knew this was Priscilla’s approach and it’s a large part of why we chose her. But what surprised us is that during this experience, our son gained even more confidence. He felt in control of his process. When he got into a school he wanted, he would celebrate. When he didn’t, he took it in stride because he believed in himself. To us, this was more valuable than anything. The college application process can be overwhelming, especially to the kids. It can be fraught with so much self doubt, no matter where your child stands on the academic ladder. And often there is no rhyme or reason as to why they get into one school and not another. What a gift to let these kids know that they are enough, as they are now.”      – Anne, parent

“Priscilla was thorough, diligent, and professional. With over 6,000 colleges in the US, even knowing where to start can be daunting. Priscilla has a very effective system that helped my son narrow down a group of schools to contact and ultimately visit based on a number of variables, preferences, and his test scores. Even when my son would procrastinate the to-do items on his college search list, Priscilla would persistently, yet gently nudge him to stay on course. This was much appreciated. I own my own business so I especially appreciate that Priscilla did what she said she’d do, always. This pretty much epitomizes our experience.”  – Roger, parent

“My son and I worked with Priscilla on his college applications, essays, and focusing on the best schools based on his grades and SAT scores. Priscilla took my son’s interests and where and what schools he wanted to apply to. She offered great insight on additional things my son could and needed to optimize his last year of high school. Priscilla was helpful on all accounts and worked directly with my son to get everything done on time and even early. She took something that I thought would be a daunting experience and made it easy. I felt like my son was her only client because she was quick to respond and spent the time needed to answer all our questions. She steadied our nerves through the whole process. We will definitely use Priscilla again when my daughter heads to college in the next couple of years. My only regret is not hiring her sooner, ideally when my son was going into 10th grade instead of at the end of his junior year.”  – Jim, parent

“My son was very confused about his future.  As parents, we were freaked out. Nicole saved the day. She spoke to our son on his level, helped him figure out what he really wanted, and gave him a host of options that fit his vision. She stayed with him through the whole process, being both the voice of the young and the sensible voice of those of experience. Wow. Elegant and sensitive. Thank you so much!!”  – Frank, parent

“Nicole was key in providing a sense of comfort and calm to my daughter in the beginning of the process and ultimately was the very best resource I could ever imagine having in our pocket. Her ability to ascertain what my daughter was seeking and cull it down to a variety of schools that fit her professional aspirations, as well as her social desires, led us to supreme success with the schools Nicole suggested and her subsequent success rate of acceptance. You could do no better, that much I assure you.”    – Jonathan, parent

“I just want to let you know how much we appreciate Priscilla’s help and assistance. Despite a rocky start in high school, Max has now been admitted to multiple great schools and we look forward to visiting them this spring. We would not be at this happy point without Priscilla. Her role in helping Max has been invaluable to our entire family.”    – Susan, parent

“When I first came to Nicole, I had no idea where to even start looking for schools. All I knew about college was that you choose a school, write an essay, apply, and hope you get in. Nicole helped me set up a timeline with all of the things I wouldn’t have even thought to do. She reviewed my essays and answered my questions. She even found schools that I had never heard of before, and she helped me find the school of my dreams. I honestly would not be where I am today without her.” – Analiese, student

“Priscilla worked with my daughter for her college application and she is a wonderful mentor for a young girl that needs to build up her strength and confidence. My daughter emailed her and talked to her before we went for an in person meeting. You can always expect a fast response from her for your questions and we are grateful for all the advice and help she provided to us during this stressful period of time!  – Jennifer, parent

“Nicole – Elliott is very impressed with you (we both are!) and is motivated to do the work that you ask. Thank you for your kindness and consideration and professionalism – it goes a long way towards inspiring a teenager!”  – Carol, parent

“Priscilla’s extensive experience supporting students with early college planning and admission consulting has been extremely helpful for our family. She is dedicated to helping your student find the best-fit college… the school that is the best fit for their personality, goals, and interests. Priscilla is serious about getting to know you and your student, so she can help your student find (and get into!) the best school for them. She is upfront about rates and services and is flexible and honest about what you need to engage her for every step of the way. I highly recommend Priscilla to help you and your student navigate the stressful process of college planning, applications and assisting with the important financial aid strategy.”     – Kelly, parent

“If you are looking for a professional, thorough and accessible college counselor for your high school student, we highly recommend Nicole. She helped our senior pinpoint what kind of experience and college was best suited to her personality and academic history. Her focus on our daughter’s goals and frequent check ins made the college search painless and exciting for all of us. My daughter finished most of her applications BEFORE putting turkey in her mouth! YIPEE!” – Kathleen, parent
