After making initial contact with ICC, I connected and began working with Andy. He was caring, persistent, creative, and never made me feel stressed. The only item of dispute I ever had with him was that he is a New York Yankee fan, whereas I am a Boston Red Sox fan. MLB criticism aside, the best part about working with Andy was that he helped showcase me. Showcasing what I already had to offer was essential, something that I was not fully capable of doing before the college application process because I wrote too humbly about myself. He helped me showcase myself without sounding arrogant or shy, which is precisely what I needed! However, I will say that College Counselors at ICC are not there to write your essays or do tasks for you. Instead, they encourage you to make your application authentic. I was initially concerned that my application would not be my own with a College Counselor, but that was not the case with Andy at ICC.
As for actual admissions to schools, Andy encouraged me to apply (yes, I almost didn’t) to Georgetown University. How right he was because, thus far, it has been such an excellent fit for me! Andy helped me know what schools were a good fit for me and where I was also a good fit for the school. It’s a two-way equation. Georgetown was just one of the seven schools Andy helped me get admitted to, and if I had to do it again (not that I would), I wouldn’t hesitate to call Andy.
“The college admissions process can be tough for both parents and their kids but with the help of International College Counselors, the usual scary overload of information became manageable. The tips and tricks provided helped families conquer college! Thank you, Andy!”

I want you to know how beneficial your presentation was for our daughter, M. She told me that she learned a lot about the college application process, adding that she was glad she attended your seminar. Thank you.
