"Everyone else is trying to imitate what you guys do for real"

“I can't put in words what we owe you & how much you guys made all the difference. From the very first meeting, you were right. And my son ended up getting into the exact school you predicted would be the best match for him-- even though it was off the Waitlist and after some hard times. Your guidance and expertise through it all was invaluable. You guys really, really know what you're doing. And I just can't thank you enough.”

-Parent of Penn '21

“Thank you again and again for everything you all have done for our children! You have been instrumental in not only getting them into college, but also shaping them into wonderfully responsible and caring people who have a better understanding of and perspective on themselves and the impact they can have on others. Thank you, again, Angela!  We are all just so happy!”

-Parent of Duke '20

“People don’t understand how stressed seniors and their parents are during the senior year and the college applications. We could not have done this if you were not there for us.”

-Harvard '18

“My wife and I are always appreciative of you and your staff for your great service. Your service was more than simply "helping students to go to a good school". You taught my kids how they should design their future, solve problems along the way and know what is important in their life.”

-Parent of Penn ‘19

“We just wanted to let you know that after we followed Angela's great advice from a couple of years ago, my child applied early action and was accepted to both MIT and Caltech. Please pass along our thanks to Angela - her advice on strategy was spot on, and we could not be happier.”

 ​​-Parent of ‘19 (Total Strategy Consultation)

“I GOT INTO PENN!!!!!!! Thank you so so so much for everything that you have done with me. Working with you has been awesome and you've been such a wonderful college counselor. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”

-Penn '20

“Your sincere concern, care and help were so palpable and your magic touch worked. I hope my kids will grow up to help others like you have helped them.”

-Parent of Stanford '18 

“I started out quite overwhelmed by the entire prospect of applying to college, but you were able to break everything down step-by-step for me. The results I got were amazing, thanks to you.”

-Harvard '18

“My brother urged us to hire BACG and told us that you guys were worth every penny. That certainly was the case, and once again, I must tell you that I can’t thank you enough!  I remember at one of the first meetings when Angela said our son had the potential for getting into MIT, just the mere approval to dream of it, was a compliment in itself and put a proud smile on his face. So you can imagine how incredibly happy he is to actually be admitted!"

-Parent of MIT ‘19

“I want to give another HUGE thank you for all your time and effort guiding me through this process. I really mean it when I say that I would not have gotten into any of the top schools I applied to if I did not have your advice and guidance for my application. I had totally given up on getting into Stanford or Princeton, but you were able to create miracles and help me get accepted. I honestly can't express how thankful I am for your help.”

-Stanford '19

“I thought it important to say a few words to show our gratitude for all your support throughout the past years for all three of our children, with yet another great college result for which my husband and I could not be more satisfied with. It is still hard for me to believe that the college process has ended for our family, and that it's really been more than a decade since my eldest went through the college application process with your help. Again, we are very, very thankful for all you have done for our family.”

-Parent of NYU '19

“I’m so excited! I knew from the beginning that you were really different from the other academic consulting company I had worked with before, but I wasn’t prepared to experience such spectacular results! Thank you so much for all of your help.”

-Syracuse '18

“I recently graduated (can’t believe it!), and as I was doing a lot of self-reflection on how I got here and who helped me along the way, you were among the first ones I remembered. Thank you for not giving up on me—I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for you. Any student is lucky to have you guys as mentors.”

-UC Berkeley ‘13

“Everyone at Boston Academic was so helpful, and so professional – we couldn’t appreciate you enough! We couldn’t have done it without you.”
