What Students & Parents Are Saying
Jodi is an absolute pleasure to work with . . .
Our kids each had their own ideas of what they wanted from the college testing and application process and Jodi was able to help each of them achieve their goals. Her knowledge of all the different schools is very impressive and her ability to suggest which schools are right for each student is incredibly helpful. We used Jodi to help with the essay writing which was very helpful! We have already used Jodi for 3 of our 4 kids and once our last one is ready, there is no question we will once again be calling her to help!

Working with Jodi was nothing short of amazing . . .
Jodi was there for me at all hours for constant college collaboration. Much college knowledge, quick responses, answers to every question, and great guidance are just a few of Jodi’s specialties. I can’t imagine having gone through the college process without her help as she guided me through to success.

Worth every penny . . .
The college admissions and selection process is daunting. We had no idea where to start! Jodi provided structure and a clear path toward finding the right fit. Frankly I don’t know how we would have done it without her help.

I highly recommend Jodi as a college counselor . . .
We are so grateful to Jodi for guiding us through the stressful college admissions process. Jodi counseled our son, Zach, beginning in his junior year and throughout the college decision process. Not only did she help him make smart choices in selecting high school courses, but she also guided him in identifying meaningful summer experiences and internships to bolster his resume and make him stand out. During the application process, Jodi helped Zach select schools that would be a good fit – this was especially helpful in a year when it was difficult to travel and visit colleges in person – and, perhaps most importantly, she worked closely with him to hone in on his unique qualities and tell his story engagingly in his many college essays. As a result of working with Jodi, Zach was accepted to many selective universities and is attending one of his reach schools. I highly recommend Jodi as a college counselor – she’s incredibly knowledgeable, great with teenagers, responsive (and reassuring) to parents, and just a pleasure to work with.

I'm thrilled my daughter was admitted to her top choice . . .
When my daughter was a junior, she lacked direction on where she wanted to go to college, what size school she wanted, what area, etc. Jodi and Shirley spent countless hours helping her to define her goals and priorities and then developing a list of schools to visit. They really helped me cut down on conflict in the home! They gave her the direction to be successful in promoting herself to the colleges during the application process, as well as interviews, contacting faculty, and auditions. I am thrilled to say my daughter was admitted to her top choice as well as a highly competitive program within the school. I couldn’t do it without them!

Four acceptances with scholarship offers so far . . .
I know we haven’t heard back from everyone, but we are so pleased with how College Unlimited helped Jane put her best self forward on the applications. Four acceptances with scholarship offers so far!

College Unlimited helped make the application process a "walk in the park" . . .
Shirley and Jodi took away the pressure and stress throughout the college application process. They assisted me during every step of the way by creating a plan with a schedule and deadlines for essays and other activities. They helped me to find colleges that were right for me and gave me advice that helped me to make a decision regarding which college would be a good fit for me. I can’t thank them enough for sitting with me for countless hours, working with me on my college essays and guiding me to do things that I would have never thought to do on my own. They also took away all of my parents’ stress and pressure which was an incredible relief for me! There is no doubt that my success greatly relies on their assistance and guidance. I can’t thank them enough for pushing me through and turning an abstract concept that I knew nothing about into a “walk in the park”.

I can gladly say that I’ve ended up at the school for me . . .
It was hard to not feel intimidated when I first entered the college search process at the end of my junior year of high school. If learning to fill out my application and cater my essays to each school seemed like huge hurdles, then finding the right school for me felt like a mountain. It wasn’t until I met Jodi Gershoni at College Unlimited that this demanding process began to make sense. Together Jodi and I created a customized list of colleges that suited my need to be both academically stimulated, in a fun environment, and receive a decent scholarship that would lighten the financial burden of my future endeavors. In addition, Jodi kept me on schedule with finishing my essays, applying for scholarships, and filing my applications, among a myriad of other tasks. Throughout this process, Jodi was a source of reliability, and I can gladly say that I’ve ended up at the school for me. I am now finishing up my second year at the College of Charleston, a school that I would never have found if it wasn’t for Jodi and College Unlimited!

College Unlimited crafted a plan that led me to choosing the perfect school . . .
I would not have been able to get through the college application process without College Unlimited. As the first of six siblings to go through this, I was overwhelmed by the process. Jodi crafted a plan that ultimately led me to choosing the perfect school for me. Her high expectations of me required a consistent and thorough effort in my part. Working with College Unlimited allowed me to construct the best application possible to my colleges of choice. As the acceptance letters came in, I felt an incredible amount of pride because of the work Jodi pulled out of me throughout the process. I will take everything she taught me, specifically becoming a better writer and student, and apply those skills in my next four years of college.

College Unlimited made me feel comfortable & confident in an area I knew nothing about . . .
College Unlimited has been a great help in my successful college journey. Throughout the entire process, Jodi was organized, flexible, and knowledgeable. She made me feel comfortable and confident in an area I knew nothing about. Her enthusiasm and positive attitude were encouraging tools. From my initial “to do” checklist to my first acceptance, Jodi has been by my side the whole way. I would recommend her for anyone going through the college search process. She takes the stress out of what can be a very challenging experience.
