“I don’t know what we would have done without your help finding scholarship money! The scholarship is a wonderful gift, and I honestly don’t know if we would have found it on our own… I shudder at the thought!”

College Ready Team,

It is July 11, 2008. I have spent the entire morning in front of the computer shopping online for those hard to find XL twin bed linens and all of the things Elizabeth will need to make her dorm room her home away from home. It got me thinking about the process that led up to this point and why I can afford Pottery Barn over Target!

Working with you, Bethany and Jeanne, was such a wise decision and worth so much more than the cost of your services. There were many benefits partnering with you through the college selection process.

  • For Bernie and for me, it was nice NOT being the ones nagging Elizabeth about deadlines. What a relationship saver! You kept her on track and focused.
  • It was beneficial to Elizabeth that we were NOT the ones to critique and proofread applications and essays. As parents, I think we tend to want to re-write things to reflect who we think our children should be, or worse to reflect who we are!
  • We appreciate the time you took getting to know Elizabeth and matching her personality, goals and accomplishments, and wants to different universities. Indiana University wasn’t even a thought until you brought to our attention their great journalism school and the big university in a small town atmosphere Elizabeth wanted. She loves Bloomington, the beautiful campus, and the professors she’s met thus far, and so do I. It’s so much easier letting go when we feel so comfortable with where she is going.
  • I don’t know what we would have done without your help finding scholarship money! The scholarship is a wonderful gift, and I honestly don’t know if we would have found it on our own – or what if we had discovered it after the early application deadline? I shudder at the thought.

Elizabeth worked so hard to be included at the top among the best and the brightest, and with your help she is able to benefit greatly from the fruits of her labor.

Sincerely,

Margot

(Elizabeth’s Mom)
