"I want to thank you so much for helping me through the "intimidating" college application process. I have loved working with you and I don't think I could've done this so smoothly without your help...I will definitely keep in touch, and I would recommend you (College Fit for U) to any students I know...you are great!"
“The task of selecting and applying to colleges was quite intimidating prior to working with Joan. However, due to all of the help she has provided, I now feel confident and prepared for every component of the admissions process. Joan is an amazing resource, a thoughtful person, and a truly extraordinary counselor. I highly recommend her services to anyone seeking guidance in finding and applying to the right schools.”
“Joan Britt possesses a wealth of up-to-date college information. In
addition, she is so energetic and positive that high school students
will talk to and listen to her! As a parent launching her first child to
college, I found the new deadlines, college choices and financial
information overwhelming. Joan was able to pare down the important
information and create timelines for visits, interviews and essays.
College Fit For U was more helpful than we could have imagined at the
beginning of the college application process. We are grateful to Joan
for all her detailed and energetic work.”
“I went into the college process with no idea what I wanted to study, where I wanted to go, or how to get started with college searching. Mrs. Britt really took the time to get to know me as a person as well as a student and suggested some schools that fit what I was looking for when I pictured a school. After all her help with finding schools, interviews, the college essay, and resume building, I felt confident going into the application process and I am so grateful for her guidance through this important part of my life.”
“Having Joan work with our son has been a truly valuable experience. While we remain involved with the college process, Joan has been able to guide him in ways we would not have thought of ourselves. She has a wealth of information regarding the application process on the professional level and also a lot of experience stemming from the launching of her own two children to college. Joan has been able to elicit thoughts and questions from our son regarding this process that are insightful without ever placing her thoughts or beliefs in the equation. Joan expects our son to do all of the legwork regarding tests and applications, etc., but makes sure he has all of the information necessary way ahead of time. Joan set up with him a timeline that the two of them are sticking with. It has been great not to have to worry or wonder if he is on top of things. He is, and she is. Joan is making the entire college process relatively stress free, and I believe our son has more insight into all future choices with her guidance."
"Our son has been working with Joan Britt for the past year. She has been a tremendous resource - helping to narrow down the right school, providing up-to-date information on the application process and assisting with fine-tuning his application. Her knowledge of the college admissions process is invaluable, but of equal importance is her ability to connect with young people. She has been a mentor and friend to our family as we have navigated the college selection process. We intend to use her services again."
“I want to sincerely thank you for working with our family. As you know, our daughter is a first generation college student. Your experience, knowledge and commitment were invaluable to us in this challenging, yet worthwhile journey. I really appreciated your professionalism and enthusiasm in helping her find the right colleges for her. You helped her to determine which schools to visit, what to look for, and questions to ask along the way. I was thoroughly impressed that you took the time to do the research to answer our questions. On several occasions you called and even visited schools to learn more about them. Most importantly, you gave our daughter the tools she needed to prepare the best possible college applications! She applied to four schools and was accepted at all four. I know that your time, talents and dedication helped her to achieve this goal! In closing, I would wholeheartedly recommend your services to other parents and students beginning the college search process. Our lives are so busy, but it’s important to take the time to invest in our children’s futures. This is one investment that is so worth it!"
“Joan Britt is a lifesaver! We were quite overwhelmed by the college search process and didn't know where or how to begin. She put us on the right track and was an invaluable resource throughout the entire process. Considering the expense of college, not to mention the consequences of a 'right fit', we found her fees a tremendous value. Five stars for Joan Britt, and our daughter agrees!"
“As our oldest daughter entered her junior year in high school, the stress level in our home increased dramatically surrounding the college search process. She had no idea what she wanted to study in college; consequently we didn’t know where to begin. We made the decision to work with Joan and she has helped our whole family through this process. We are now in the fall of my daughter’s senior year and Joan has prepared her well; the application process is proceeding smoothly. We have benefited so much from Joan’s depth of knowledge of all things related to the college search, plus her calm demeanor! I had heard so many horror stories about how stressful senior year can be. Thanks to Joan our college search process has been far from horrible. I would say it has been efficient and effective and has helped our family work together on this really important project.”
