Happy Clients


"A year ago I had no idea what college I wanted to go to. Now I know where I want to go and that I truly belong there. And I was admitted and was awarded a scholarship! There is no way I could have done it without Shelley’s help."

— Student

"Shelley’s organization of the application process was so helpful! She really impressed us with the complete Custom College Plan website & Plan of Action notebook. That tool became invaluable."

— mother of a student

"The time she spent with me... was above and beyond the call of duty. Because of the commitment and encouragement she brought to my journey of finding a college destination, I am secure in my college decision and extremely excited for the next four years."

"Her attention to all the details, from researching specifics of college programs to editing essays... to checking my applications was even more helpful than my parents and I were expecting."

— student

"Our college-bound children were able to better define their objectives and narrow their nationwide college search utilizing McBride College Planning’s system and data base of college attributes.  Once they determined where they wanted to apply, McBride College Planning kept them on track to meet important application and scholarship-related deadlines."

- mother of a student

"It was reassuring to realize that [our daughter] was prepared to submit Early Action applications in October when her friends were just starting to think about where to apply. Thanks to you she met every deadline with time to spare!"
