“College MatchPoint provided insight, persistence and savvy advice for our ADHD son. They were able to create a college list to match his learning needs and they took the pain out of the application and writing process by coaching him every step of the way. In fact, he got into all of the schools to which he applied. I continually refer College MatchPoint to my Bay Area co-workers.”
