What Clients are Saying
“Working with Teri was a tremendous help in my college research and application process. She seems to know everything about college, with an encyclopedic knowledge of the programs, cultures, and financial aid options at an enormous number of schools. She made the daunting process of narrowing down my options easy, applying her wide knowledge base and excellent research skills to the problem of finding schools where I would be happy, had a reasonable shot at admission, and would ultimately be able to afford. Teri was tremendously patient with my questions and generous with her time. She is clearly passionately interested in the college selection process, and deeply invested in the well-being of the students she works with."
"The college application process is overwhelming, and Teri gave me much more personalized assistance than a high school counselor dealing with several hundred students. She is very knowledgeable about the college search and has many important pieces of advice, and yet she lets you make your own decisions. She made the process less stressful and chaotic. Whether you know the direction you want to go in or you need help figuring it out, she will help you find the best path for you to pursue by working with you and making sure you end up in the right place. She will get to know you and give you suggestions, but wants to work with your values and priorities. I started out hardly knowing anything about the application process, and ended up at the absolute perfect school for me; I couldn't be happier!"
"I'm a sophomore at Boston College and Teri helped me research graduate programs. She figured out which undergrad courses I needed and she identified summer internship opportunities in my prospective field. Talking to Teri was very helpful. I'm glad I worked with her!"
“Teri helped us plan a trip to the East Coast to visit schools during spring break. We visited 6 schools in one week, which at first seemed like it would be too many, but it all worked out, thanks to Teri’s advice.”
"My achievement oriented daughter wanted an East Coast liberal arts college with a strong math focus. She attended a very large public school with little college advising support. In addition, it was crucial that the school be affordable for our family. My daughter had a lot of ideas and enthusiasm, but no idea of where to start. It was my sister, from Seattle, who suggested that I contact Teri at Thompson College Consulting. Teri Thompson provided my daughter individualized suggestions and strategies that were integral in pairing her with a school that offered vigorous academics in a supportive campus environment on the East Coast. Catherine found her dream school, and even received a generous financial package! We couldn't be more pleased"
"Teri helped our son get into the college of his choice with her wealth of knowledge about colleges' pros and cons and practical strategies for the application, scholarship and decision "mazes." She is delightful to work with and cares about the success of the students she helps. Partnering with Teri is a worthwhile investment in the important college decisions."
