"Sandy is the consummate professional, and she has a fantastic set of global resources, which is very important when your child is in the International Baccalaureate Diploma program with plans to pursue attending university out of the country. Her ability to provide insight on how to navigate the processes of university applications, personal statements, student visa's and international health insurance is due to her personal and professional experience of having lived and worked in other countries. My husband and I are very grateful for Sandy's expertise as we have successfully launched our daughter at a university in London."
"I wholeheartedly recommend Sandy Furth as a college advisor. She recently worked with my daughter to gain admission to a four-year college. She took the time to get to know my daughter and spoke to her extensively throughout the process. You always hear about the importance of finding the right school for your student, but Sandy took this to another level. She wanted my daughter to succeed not only academically, but personally. The college search is an anxious time for students and parents, but we felt well on our way when we began to work with Sandy Furth."
"Sandy guided us and my grandson systematically, sensitively and with unerring skill through evaluations and treatment for his learning issues, his aptitudes and options for high school, and ultimately, through the admissions maze to acceptance into an amazing school that I had never heard of before she suggested it. The school has proven to be a phenomenal fit where, despite more work and academic rigor, my grandson has received no grade less than a B in his first semester and was elected president of the freshman class. That sort of outcome was only a dream for us two years ago, but Sandy made it happen."
