" McDonald & Associates did a terrific job in guiding my son through the somewhat overwhelming process of applying to college. From helping determine which schools might be the best fit, to essay preparation and even managing the acceptance process...his acceptance rate was almost 100% to those schools which he applied. We were also extremely pleased with the amount of academic scholarships he received."
K. B., parent

" You certainly have been paying it forward for the many you guide through this process. Keep up the good work."
