This past semester I applied for a dual-degree and I am simultaneously pursuing a degree in the College of Arts and Sciences and the Wharton School. Just wanted to reach out and update you as I do believe it was my concise writing style that opened up these opportunities for me. Thank you again for your help and advice as it continues to pay dividends for me.
Dear Mr. Blumenstyk,
Thank you for your insight regarding the college application process. The modifications you suggested for my essays contributed to a far better product than the original, which I believe was key to me gaining admission to Duke University. It has become apparent over the course of the college advising sessions that, for lack of a better way to phrase it, you know what you are doing. While I was initially hesitant to go for college advising, looking back, I am confident I made the correct choice. Thank you for helping me gain admission into my dream school.
Thank you for all your wisdom, guidance and encouragement. My daughter was a tough nut to crack but with your experience and perseverance, she opened up and she completed her tasks and matured along the way. Thank you for giving your all to my daughter and always keeping your eye on the ball. Colgate will be a whole new ballgame for us! A small liberal arts college in a rural setting, wow! So here we go!!
All the best to you!
Thanks so much for connecting, and I hope you’re well.
With roughly one quarter complete, both boys love their respective schools.
My younger son really enjoys the school’s culture and the small class sizes, as well as the use of technology in the educational process. He was part of the middle school soccer team this fall, and signed up for basketball for the winter. He has a great group of friends at school and feels very well integrated into the school. Academically, he is getting straight As so far this quarter, and finds the environment motivating for him.
My older son too loves his school. Having gone there in elementary school, he has integrated into his class and school environment as though he had never left. He joined the freshman soccer team this fall and just started fencing for the winter. Surprisingly, his favorite class is English literature, which is a complete reversal from last year. He too is doing great academically — mostly As so far.
We are really grateful for all of your help and guidance getting the boys to this point, as are the boys.
Our youth are quite a bunch in Paterson, however, whether they realize it or not at this time, the knowledge bestowed upon them has the power to change their lives if they apply it, and we will continue our efforts to create opportunities for them to do just that.
We value you highly as a partner and hope we can again work with you in the future.
All the best and enjoy a wonderful summer.
We could not have found better placement for our son without you! We are extremely grateful!
This kid is learning with ADHD and a learning disability!
Thank you for helping our daughter find her way to (university) and New York City which she loves so much. She is thriving and constantly inspired.
For all these years of helping our son get through school which stifles him so much and for finding (boarding school) where he will grow and find himself. We have great confidence that he will excel and find happiness there.
Most likely we will be calling on you in the future for your expertise.
