Our Parents Say It Best

We had the best experience with Class 101! Laura was not only knowledgeable about the college application process but she was also organized and strategic about it as well. My daughter got into her dream school with her guidance. I couldn’t be more thrilled about how smooth our experience was because of her. I highly recommend her services and will be using her again for my other 2 kids!


Highly recommend!
Laura guided our daughter throughout the whole college application process.
Her expert knowledge, organization and availability were critical to her success. We would have been lost without her!


Laura’s attention to details has helped us to truly enjoy the college search for our son. We could not have done it without her. With so much to do and so many choices, her help and vast knowledge has made us feel comfortable every step of the way. We loved the experience so much that we just signed up our daughter to work with her as well.


Student-tested. Parent-approved.
