“As a first generation family sending our only child to college, we had so many worries and uncertainties. Janet Rosier helped us understand the application process, taking us carefully through every key step. Her guidance—especially on the college essays—was invaluable.”
-L.N. mother of J.L.
“Our child’s guidance counselor left school at the end of junior year, so having Janet to help us all navigate the process was a huge help and anxiety reliever. Janet was a pleasure to work with – most of all when our child – our first to apply – would freak out about some question we had no answer for. Rather than having to prowl the internet for guesses, we could just send them to Janet and have her parse classes to take, APs of less interest vs. a less highly ranked class of real interest, whether the choice of majors mattered. She pushed for finishing applications early; she fielded any questions we had; she met with our child whenever needed; and she found target schools we would never have thought of that matched our child well. She’s terrific at helping kids understand that it’s rough out there and they need to find a range of colleges they’d love to attend rather than set their hearts on a reach. Ours never picked a firm first choice, and that contributed to real happiness at the end of the application process. Best of all, I think, was that our kid was willing and eager to work with her, talk to her, and trust her, so we didn’t have to have a lot of tense discussions where both parents and child were anxious and uncertain. She gave us a lot of confidence not in a given outcome, but in a good process working out in the end – which it did!”

“Janet was instrumental in my Doctor of Physical Therapy program application success. From preparing my materials to identifying programs and essay writing, Janet provided constructive and candid feedback. Janet helped me dig deeper and craft comprehensive and honest essays. I had (and have) absolute faith in her expertise and she did not lead me astray! In fact, her support and direction led to multiple DPT program acceptances, including Northwestern University, University of Minnesota, and Drexel University. I’m so grateful for Janet’s guidance throughout this process and can’t recommend her enough. Thank you for helping me reach this goal!”

“There is no doubt in my mind that the college application process would have been vastly different without Janet’s help. Not only did she guide us to the colleges that were a good fit for my daughter–she loved every one we visited–she also helped her decide how to tackle the essays for each school. With Janet’s gentle but persistent prodding, the total process was done by Thanksgiving, leaving the whole family time to relax for the holidays. By Christmas we had wonderful news- my daughter had been accepted to Georgetown. This was followed by acceptances to Haverford, Tufts, Johns Hopkins University and the University of Pennsylvania. I honestly don’t see how anyone can do this properly without expert help. I would hire her again in a minute.”

“Janet Rosier helped me identify and apply to the colleges that were just right for me and I was accepted to all of them. Janet gave me expert advice on my high school curriculum and I was able to apply to the major I wanted knowing I had exactly what they were looking for. She patiently answered all of my questions and was always available when needed. Janet also helped me with my resume and campus interviews. When it came time for me to write my essay, I didn’t know where to begin. She helped me choose a topic and find my voice so that my essay was a reflection of who I am. Finally, Janet encouraged me to apply to my dream school, which is where I am today.”

“The way I felt when I got the letter of acceptance to the Speech and Language Pathology Master’s program of my dreams was indescribable!” It was that climactic moment where my years of hard work in college, working in the field, and all the difficult steps required to simply apply to graduate school finally paid off. Though there were times that I felt overwhelmed and wanted to give up and choose a different career path, Janet kept reminding me that I could do it and I needed to try.
With her strong encouragement and knowledgeable background of the application process, as well as the schools themselves, I accomplished my goal and will be attending a university I didn’t think I would be accepted to, in a field that I almost gave up on. Janet continued to take my frantic phone calls and remained positive throughout this challenging process. I am grateful that I had her every step of the way to make everything a little bit easier and I could not be happier with the result. Just remember to never give up and stay positive!

“Janet Rosier was the ideal buffer between me and my son as he navigated the daunting college application process. Her guidance and gentle prodding not only insured that his essay and myriad paperwork was submitted on time, but also helped to reduce the tension and stress associated with this rite of passage. ”
– Pam Feinberg, mother of Eric
“Janet- I just said last night to my wife that you are a genius!!! I had my doubts about the guitar essay, but we trusted you to know what was right. Two colleges both included a handwritten note with the admission letter saying how they loved it! Thank you!”
– L.F, father of J.F.
Words cannot describe how grateful I am for Janet Rosier’s help with applying to Physical Therapy graduate programs. Janet helped me build a resume, edit supplemental essays, prepare for the interview process, come up with a list of graduate programs that were right for me, and so much more. Her endless guidance and helpful advice has given me the opportunity to go to my top choice school. Not only was Janet an amazing admissions consultant but she was also one of my biggest supporters throughout the whole process. I highly recommend Janet to anyone looking for help with applying into graduate programs.

“On a friend’s recommendation, I went to Janet for help with my son’s college application process. Thank goodness I did! Janet’s help was above and beyond what I expected. At the start of the process, Janet was concerned about some of the details of his academic history. She suggested that he be evaluated to better understand his academic functioning and to determine if there was a need for any accommodations to ensure success in his remaining high school career and in college. It turned out that he did have some weaknesses that were impacting his academic performance and the evaluation allowed us to secure some accommodations that helped him academically and gave him greater confidence in his abilities. The whole process was much less stressful and easier with Janet’s help. She was always available for my son or myself whether it was by a visit to her office, by phone or email. She was able to draw out my son’s interests and help with his essay in a way that I’m sure neither his father nor I would have been able to do. I don’t even want to think about what the process would have been like without Janet’s expertise and advice. Thank you, Janet. We are forever grateful.”
– L.K., mother of T.S.
“Janet was the key towards making a very stressful situation manageable. Her advice was always on target and her calm voice of reason helped us navigate the myriad scores, test results and deadlines. She was right on target with her college selections, and her ability to guide our child through the essay process was remarkable. We owe much of the success of our child achieving his first choice to Janet. We could not have done it without her.”
“We feel so fortunate to have connected with you to help Jesse navigate his way through the college application maze. Thank you for sharing your astute insights into the selection and application process, for your generosity of time and patience during the interview series and generally for your intelligent thoughtfulness all along our journey. Jesse was thrilled to be accepted at Penn, Johns Hopkins, Washington University in St. Louis, Vanderbilt, and is presently “rushing” frats and starting his first day of classes at MIT. Thanks, Janet. You’re the best!”
– Myrna Kirkpatrick, mother of Jesse
