Testimonials

My daughter and I were very grateful to have been referred to Barbara. She made the process of completing college applications go smoothly and less stressful for both of us. Her knowledge about ACT/SAT tests, tips for writing essays and sorority recruitment were extremely helpful, as well. Her experience and expertise were encouraging and made my child feel confident. I would highly recommend Barbara to anyone with a child who will be preparing to go to college.

Mrs. Samples afforded me unwavering support. Through her expertise, a world of opportunity opened. She is well acquainted with schools across the nation, which was immeasurably helpful in my search for schools on the East Coast. Her vast knowledge assisted me in finding my new home – a decision that will affect me for the rest of my life. Under her guidance, my applications flourished, and I have developed the utmost confidence in my ability to excel in higher education.

Barbara Samples was a huge help in helping my daughter attain admission to her college of choice. She assisted with every step of the way. She gave Megan the extra push to complete all three essays for the Apply Texas college application. She works individually with the students and establishes a great mentor relationship. Barbara presented us with informational statics and guided Megan to choose foundation colleges that were best for her declared major. She is very professional and will help your child accomplish their goals in a timely matter. I encourage you to let Barbara help with what parents often times struggle with.

Mrs. Samples was referred to us by a close friend. Our initial reason for approaching her was for guidance in the ACT Testing process and completing college applications. On our first visit she immediately noticed my son’s inability to pay attention and asked me if he was getting extended testing time at school. Although my son had been on medication for his ADD since the 2nd grade not one teacher or counselor had ever approached me about any type of assistance. We quickly approached his High School and his past teachers agreed he was a prime candidate for such help. We now needed to get that same approval from ACT. We were denied our first go around but after Mrs. Samples made my son’s story known to anyone who would listen from ACT he was granted his extended time. His ACT score increased from 15 to 24. The list of areas that Mrs. Samples assisted my son is endless: test prep, essays, college applications, life skills, education, patience, guidance and understanding. My son has grown to respect and admire Mrs. Samples not only as a Counselor but as a friend and mentor.
