success stories


one-on-one counseling

Julie is truly a miracle worker. Without her, I would not have been able to achieve my goals. Julie and I had three months (or less) to start and send out my college applications. She created a detailed schedule for when each essay should be completed, she proofread all of my essays so that they would draw the attention of the admissions committee, and remained positive throughout the whole process. Julie was the biggest help I could have asked for, and I can’t imagine working with anyone else. I’m so thankful I had the opportunity to work with someone as kind and caring.

I really enjoyed working with Mosaic College Prep. They really helped me get organized and get everything together. I wouldn’t have finished nearly as fast as I did without their help. I had a schedule and followed it very closely. It was never too much to do at any time. I think starting out with them in the summer was a big advantage too because I was not rushed with any of the applications. It was almost completely stress-free and I finished with everything in November.

Juli R., University of Denver

Karen was absolutely amazing. She helped me narrow down my selection of schools, refine my essays while emphasizing my individuality, and remain organized throughout this very stressful process. Karen knew how to simplify the college application process in multiple ways. Simultaneously, she was able to help me highlight my personality in ways I couldn’t do myself. I feel that Karen really cared about not just getting me into schools, but finding the right institution for what I was looking for in my education. If I didn’t have Karen’s support, feedback and knowledge about applying to schools, I wouldn’t be where I am today. It was a blast working with her and for all of this, I am incredibly grateful.

After the first five minutes of our initial meeting, I knew I was in great hands with Mosaic. Julie uses a one-of-a-kind approach to the college application process. She helped craft a moving story as to why I am applying to graduate school instead of the standard essay covering why this school should let me in. Besides her rich experience with grad schools, Julie has a unique ability to analyze a program, its website, and syllabi to help determine the theme I should echo throughout my essay … I can truly say I owe a great deal of my success to Mosaic.

Julie has been professional, patient and courteous throughout my daughter’s college admission process. She has taken the burden off of our shoulders and helped my daughter to get admitted to the college of her choice.

Parents of Desire C., University of Colorado – Boulder

Mosaic has a great rapport with high school students. They has a wonderful way of relating to students, making it a comfortable environment, while still earning respect. It was such a gift to have them as a third party working with us on the process. They strike a good balance of providing encouragement and expertise.

catching up with students

I am at USC and am loving every moment of it. I’ve joined a sorority (theta) as well as an a capella group called The SoCal VoCals. I couldn’t be happier or imagine myself anywhere else so thank you for helping me get here :)

Nikki S., USC

I absolutely love it here … I really like all my classes and my teachers are phenomenal. One of my friends from Waverly who’s a year below me is actually coming to visit campus tomorrow. I’ll suggest Mosaic to her because you were a great help to me!

Ridah F., Sarah Lawrence

Everything is amazing. School so far couldn’t be better. I definitely made the right decision. Thank you so much for your help.

Max M., SMU

Things are going great here at Northwestern! I definitely think it was the right choice for me. The kids are amazing … so friendly, supportive, and active … I like it a lot. Once again, thank you for all of your help getting me here … I really appreciate it now!
