A testimonial from a Lane Parent:

The college admissions process is a daunting one. There are myriad great universities and so many nuances and details to be aware of when embarking upon the application journey that comes and goes so quickly. We decided to hire Caryn Sanders-Marcus to guide us through the process and she did an absolutely stellar job! Caryn really got to know our son and his interests and, through extensive interviews and dialogue, produced a curated list of the best options for him. Caryn was very easy to work with but also was firm in her opinions and confident in her advice. She’s that expert you need in the room to keep you from wasting time looking at the shiny college objects that aren’t ultimately a good fit for your college bound student. She was very efficient and came up with a comprehensive plan quickly. She put together a very detailed schedule for our son to follow in order to apply early to a list of institutions that we all agreed were the best options for him. He was accepted into the majority of them. She was also very well versed in the financial aspects that needed to be considered when choosing a school. We highly recommend her and thank her for her invaluable consultation. - Lane Tech 2020 Family
