Hi Janice, Our trip was a thoroughly enjoyable family adventure! Thank you so much for the unique opportunities that you created for our daughter at each college. Meeting with a student at Harvard, was probably the most informative way to start the entire trip. She devoted a lot of time (in the rain) providing real college life details. She swiped us into dining halls, dorms & buildings that we might not have seen otherwise. Thank you so much for everything that you did! We really were able to get the most out of each campus visit!
Thank you very much for your meticulous planning and detailed scheduling of all the tours, information sessions and interviews. Not to mention all the travel literally in cars, planes and trains. Everything was perfect without a hitch. We really couldn't have done it without you. Our daughter now has a much better comprehensive understanding of each of the colleges and is in a much better position to prioritize her preferences. Thank you from all of us!!
"It's my third time using Custom College Visits... each time you improved on what I thought was already perfect."
“All the college visits went smoothly. In addition to the school programs, the students and faculty members you connected us with contributed significantly to our visits. Your professional assistance, attention to detail, and responsiveness made our college visits a great experience. Thank you so much!"
“A friend who is a maven in finding outstanding resources, recommended Janice and Custom College Visits as we began the daunting college selection process. We worked with Janice on two fronts; to help create a list of colleges and to set-up meaningful colleges visits. The college visits were also a lot of fun for us as a family and very informative on so many levels. More importantly Janice helped make the college selection process manageable, not so daunting after all, and we felt no stone was left unturned in this important decision.
"Thank you so much for planning such a wondrous experience for our son. The careful attention to detail was evident at every turn. Custom College Visits' planning effort provided an appropriate path of discovery for our son and for us."
"I found working with Custom College Visits a very positive experience. They were able to pinpoint colleges that were best suited for my daughter and the travel plans were well organized. In addition, they were able to set up an interview with a member of a college color guard, as my daughter had expressed interest in going to a school that had a color guard. I am very pleased with my experience with Custom College Visits, and would recommend them highly."
"Lili got accepted into her first choice school today (early decision): Boston University! She is thrilled beyond belief and relieved as well. We could not have done it without your help, it was invaluable. I think the High School Honors program she did there was probably very helpful and we would not have known about it without your forwarding the information to us. You rock!"
"I am happy to tell you that Nivi has been accepted early decision to Brown University. She is the first ivy leaguer in our family and we couldn't be more proud! Her decision to apply was made easier because of the excellent experience she had during her customized tour via your company so thank you so much! We will be sure to recommend you to our friends here.."
"We had a wonderful trip to Philadelphia and Boston thanks to Janice Caine of Custom College Visits. She worked out an itinerary from start to finish. We visited 9 schools and it was as smooth as possible. Janice worked out tours and information sessions as well as meetings with tennis coaches. We have boy/girl twins and both were happy which is not an easy achievement. We would highly recommend her."
“Thank you SO MUCH for your involvement in the Splash Parents' Program this weekend! I am just reviewing the feedback forms, and your presentation received rave reviews across the board; many parents cited it as the highlight of the program for them! Some verbatim quotes include: ‘The Planning and Preparing for College Visits was a great eye opener;’ Thank you for all the effort, energy, and enthusiasm you put into making the event such a success.”
"Our college process was two-fold. It began with getting a jump start on the standardized testing, and not waiting until spring of junior year to focus. I believe our outcome was successful because we had a well-managed plan helped along by an expert, Janice Caine, of Custom College Visits."
"Happy New Year! Wanted to let you know that Charlie was accepted to Johns Hopkins Early Decision! Great news and very exciting all around. Thank you for all your help."
