What students say about Judy Libman and Ambitions Educational Consulting

"Hi Judy…Harvard is an amazing place, more so than I could ever have imagined. I’m going to be forever grateful to you. I am writing for [the independent campus newspaper]; it’s a lot of fun, and the editorial board is fantastic. I am still finding out about all the cool stuff I can do on campus. There just seems to be no end. "
"Hi Judy…just getting back from my first term at UChicago! Mostly I just wanted to say that I’m having fun so far. There are some really great classes here, and…some really great teachers in those courses. I’m really enjoying it. And of course, thank you for all your help. I know there aren’t many schools where I’d have such a good time. "
"Dear Judy…I would just like to formally thank you for all your help in my college search. I don’t know what I would have done without your guidance. I’m pretty sure if you didn’t tell me about Colby, I wouldn’t even have applied. In the college search, I thin your honesty was probably the most useful thing. I’m someone who enjoys getting to the point and you definitely did that! I had so much fun in my college search and you played a big part in that. I feel so privileged to have had your guidance and opinion. Thanks a ton! "
"Hi Judy…Just wanted to share with you the good news that I was accepted to Harvard Business School. I'm simply thrilled about this and I'm bouncing off the walls with excitement. I remain deeply grateful for your support during the process. The brainstorming, the thinking, the rethinking, the writing, and much more. You played an integral role in my journey to HBS."
"Hi Judy, I just accepted the offer to the George Brown College program! So I’m pretty excited right now. Thank you so much for finding this for me. It will be nice to go travelling knowing that I have something to look forward to. Thanks for all the help and I’ll update you along the way…"

I hope we can keep in touch, it was a great pleasure to have worked with you."
