"I highly recommend Pittsburgh Prep's college essay guidance services...The essay guidance is a wonderful exercise for your child to work through in many ways. Our daughter has taken the SAT Prep course with Pittsburgh Prep as well. Both experiences have been great and very, very helpful. Excellence all the way around from the staff from communication, to knowledge, to helpfulness and making it a fun and an overall invaluable experience."

"I am very happy to let you know that Joey has decided to go CMU to study Computer Science. He received several offers from other schools...but he finally chose CMU...I really appreciate all the work you have done to prepare for Joey's college applications including SAT exam, all the essays, and all the advice and guidance you have given him during the process!
