Thank you so much, Audrey, for your help with my essays. I was amazed at how much time and thought you put in – your input greatly improved my essays. I also want to thank you for the way in which you helped me. You were able to give criticism in a way that was easy to digest, making the already stressful process a little smoother. I know that I couldn’t have been as successful with my essays without your generous effort.

Aaron F., Columbia, MD

At first, I was skeptical about working with someone long-distance, but you were always there for him. We are so grateful for all your help.

A.R., Ringwood, NJ

I’M GOING TO U CHICAGO!!! Just saying that makes me so happy, and all of this wouldn’t have been possible without you!!! Thank you SO much for EVERY single thing you’ve done for me!!!

Angela L, Oak Park

Griffin got into Miami, USC and Emory! He is really happy and so are we. I continue to sing your praises to everyone.

Noreen S., Westlake Village

I saw Audrey with my son. I, of course, expected her to be knowledgeable about college possibilities, and she was. What really stood out with my experience with Audrey is her integrity. I fully expected to purchase her entire program and told her so at the beginning of the meeting. By the end of the meeting, her advice was to not purchase the package at that time because of our particular circumstance. I was truly amazed that she gave us advice that saved us money but basically cost her money! She definitely does keep her clients’ best interest ahead of her own.

E.C., Calabasas

First, I have to say thank you. For being a part of Clare’s journey, and for all your help and guidance these past few years. Paul and I are thrilled she had so many outstanding choices of highly selective colleges to attend (we never thought a home educated student would be so enthusiastically received by Admissions in such a highly competitive applicant pool). We fully support her decision to attend Johns Hopkins Univ. She’ll get a fantastic education, and from what we saw during our 4 days on campus, it is filled with kids like Clare, and that was – as you also observed – very important to her. Once again, our sincerest thanks and deep appreciation.

Kim and Paul R., Westlake Village

I am happy to say that I was accepted into 11 of the 13 schools to which I applied. I made it into UCSB, UCSD, UC Berkeley, Rice University, Washington University in St. Louis, Duke University, University of Chicago, Johns Hopkins University, Brown University, University of Pennsylvania, and Stanford University! I’ve officially decided to attend Stanford, and I couldn’t be more excited. Thank you so much for all of your help.

Melissa M., Studio City

We are so lucky to have worked with you! I can’t thank you enough for all your sage input, guidance and advice. I will continue to refer your services whenever I can.

Diana B., Westlake Village

I got into…UC BERKELEY!! I am ecstatic! I cannot thank you enough for all of your help during the application process.

Arielle S., Oak Park

I GOT IN!!!! Thank you so much for all your help. I feel that my journey at NYU will be unlike anything I’ve yet to experience and I can’t wait to go. Gallatin is the perfect balance of intimacy and big-city surroundings. I honestly mean it that I couldn’t have put out the essay that I did without your help. While I had it in me, your constructive feedback helped me harness my plethora of potential topics into an essay I was proud to have represent me. My grades aren’t typical for Gallatin students nor are my SAT scores extraordinary in their eyes, so I thank my writing for winning them over…and therefore, I thank you. I couldn’t be happier.

Carolyn E., Calabasas

Audrey has been there to answer any questions, as well as guide me through the larger decisions. She never hesitated to research things on her own, and provided me with new outlooks on many questions I had. Her research helped me form a list of potential colleges, and eventually find the right fit. I felt confident throughout high school knowing that I had Audrey by my side.

Megan S., West Hills

It has been a pleasure to have had you guiding Megan through the college admissions process. On this journey, I feel we have been blessed with your presence, as we navigated the way. Your thoughtful responses put Megan at ease to reach out to you as a trusted advisor every time she faced a difficult situation. And your guidance has been invaluable.

Raj and Hanita S., West Hills

Audrey, your help has been invaluable in this process.

John M., Calabasas

I just wanted to let you know how much Bill and I have appreciated your assistance to and guidance of Ariel in the admissions process. We are thrilled that she has chosen University of Puget Sound. I really feel that it embodies what we visualized for her as we were filling out your questionnaire 9 months ago. Most importantly she is thrilled with it.

Mary Ann D., Thousand Oaks

Thank you so much for all your help and guidance throughout this process. I wouldn’t have even found this school if you hadn’t helped me! I will definitely keep in touch. I’m counting the days until it starts!

Ariel D., Thousand Oaks

After interviewing several private college counselors, only one stood out as being exceptional. This counselor was not only a wealth of information, but had a kind and nurturing personality. I felt that she cared about her students and genuinely wanted them to be happy about their college choices. Whereas the other counselors had rigid guidelines about what “all of their students do,” Audrey Kahane listened to my daughter and formulated a plan custom designed to fit her needs. Ms. Kahane emphasized not what my daughter “should have done” in high school, but what she could do to increase her chances of acceptance to her first choice school.

Most of the schools my daughter applied to were excellent matches, but were schools we never would have even considered if not for Ms. Kahane. Through her frequent visits to colleges all over the country, she was empowered with information unobtainable from school catalogues or websites. Not only was Ms. Kahane invaluable during the college selection process, she also guided my daughter through high school class selection during her junior and senior years. She knew what standardized tests my daughter should take and when and how often to take them. My daughter received valuable constructive criticism and guidance on her essays, and every application and resume were proofread and polished. Ms. Kahane also helped us plan visits to different colleges and special open house presentations given by out of state schools.

My daughter was accepted at all 8 colleges to which she applied. Two years later, my son achieved similar success under the tutelage of Ms. Kahane. My third child has just been accepted Early Decision to her first choice school on the East coast despite tremendous competition. The amazing thing about the accomplishments of these three children is that none one of them had a GPA over 3.5 when applying to these schools!

In conclusion, our college application experience was stress free and enjoyable. I am honored to have the opportunity to recommend the services of Ms. Audrey Kahane. Good luck to your son or daughter at this very exciting time in their lives. I hope it is as successful for your children as it was for mine!

Melanie Couture, Oak Park, CA

Thank you for all of your help with Julie. We are very excited for her & anticipate that we will see you again in a couple of years when her younger sister Jamie is ready to prepare to go off to college.

Irene J., Thousand Oaks

Thank you so much for all your help. I am planning on going to my first choice UCSB. Thanks again. You were a big part of my success in getting accepted.

Kendal S., Camarillo

Thank you! I’m so excited. Thank you so much for all your help – your advice made such a huge difference in my application, and you helped relieve a lot of the stress of college applications.

Kathryn E., Camarillo

I would like to thank you again for helping Kathryn with her college applications. She did very well and got in to all 7 schools she applied to, even with her highly impacted major. In addition to Stanford, she got into UC Berkley, UCLA, UCSD, UC Irvine, UC Davis, USC with BioMedical Engineering as her declared major.

Wilma E., Camarillo

I wanted to thank you again for the help and time you gave Rachel during her application process and all your advice. It obviously helped! We are so proud of her and excited that she does have choices, unlike a lot of her friends. We will be in touch with you in the not too distant future, for help with our freshman son.

Debbie S., Agoura

I’m deciding between Wesleyan, Vassar, Tufts, UCLA, and Berkeley. I just wanted to thank you SO MUCH because there’s no way I could be making such a difficult decision between such amazing schools if it hadn’t been for all your help!!! Thank you thank you thank you thank you!

Claralyse P., Agoura

Just wanted to let you know that we are very relieved and want to thank you for your help in this stressful process. Terry received an acceptance from Swarthmore on top of a Grinnell acceptance (that one included offer of an $18,000 a year merit scholarship). Oberlin and Rochester are offering nice merit scholarships as well. Thanks again for your counsel, both practical and psychological, on Terry’s college application journey.

Russ M., San Gabriel

Audrey, I have been telling other parents of how helpful you were to Bill’s success. You really made this whole college application process so easy for him and us. It was great to have someone for him to go to. We are just so happy for him. Thank you again for all your help.

Thadine H., Whittier

I got accepted to UCLA, Berekely, Santa Barbara, San Diego, Cornell, USC, and I got on the waiting list for Pomona. I’m really excited and I’m leaning toward UCLA as I always thought I would. Thank you so much for helping me get through the stressful college process! I definitely believe that the essays you helped me with distinguished me from many similar candidates who also had good grades and lots of extracurricular activities. Thank you so much!!!

Briana B., Grenada Hills

I got into Rice! Thank you so much for everything! I have been so blessed to have you at my side these past few months.

Jared S. Calabasas

It looks like I’m going to Macalester next fall!!! Thanks for all your help. I would not have been able to get through the process without you!

Annie S., Encino

THANK YOU for your assistance, guidance and experience in helping Kyle navigate through the college admissions process. Even the best of us need help in getting better and you helped our son in achieving his dream. You already know all the places Kyle was admitted to and after looking at everything, Notre Dame not only offered him the best financial package but it was his first choice. Once again please accept our deepest gratitude and sincere appreciation for helping Kyle.

Anil A., Camarillo

Thank you so much for all your help. You were really helpful not only in the process of applying to the colleges but also in deciding.
