Review for Collegetracks, Bethesda, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a pediatrician and a parent, I understand how difficult it can be to navigate the college application process for even the most pampered children. Helping the student population at Wheaton High School is immensely gratifying as they are often without home support and they are tremendously appreciative. Many are new immigrants and/or first generation college attendees. Getting into college will hopefully enable their entire family to benefit from their experience. I have learned as much from them about their life's experiences as they have learned from me about the application process. I love reading their college essays and helping them tell their own often fascinating stories in their own voice.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my weekly encounters with exceptional students and staff. I love to see where the students get into college, what funding they get and then hear the follow up as they begin the college process.
