I worked with Brian and started meeting in September of my senior year. College applications were confusing and I had no idea where I wanted to go, which colleges offered my major, or my chances of being accepted. Brian made the college process so much less stressful and helped me present an application that showcased me beyond my SAT scores and my GPA. Together, we worked on all aspects of the college application, from researching the colleges that suited me the best to editing the essays and preparing for campus interviews. Brian’s incredible knowledge of the application process and of schools truly helped me gain acceptance to my dream college!! I cannot thank Brian enough for his dedication, commitment and time! I could not have done it without Crisp Consulting + Coaching!

Crisp Consulting was fantastic during my college admission process. Brian is FANTASTIC! Together we focused on schools that would really help me develop as a person. I fell in love with our final list of schools and knew I would succeed on any of the campuses. He did a fantastic job advising me on college, and my choice. These were schools that I never would have thought on my own to even look . Brian made the whole process really achievable and fun. This was the best gift my parents could have given me.

There were many positive benefits of using an educational consultant but the best part of having Brian and Crisp Consulting + Coaching help our family was seeing how the general stress and tension left our home as he worked with our son during the admission and application process. There was a sense that there was a desirable and achievable goal, a light at the end of the tunnel, answers to all the questions, and a clear course to plot. Settling those overwhelming feelings of uncertainty, reunited our family so we could enjoy all the positive emotions surrounding the future of college!

Crisp Consulting + Coaching has been our compass in the college admissions process. Brian has guided our family with his unbelievable wisdom and knowledge of colleges and their admission procedures. He is incredibly genuine and caring with a real sense of what high school students are dealing with on an everyday basis. We were thrilled with all the creative ideas as well as his organization and consistent follow-through. Don’t leave high school without Crisp Consulting + Coaching!

It was just what we needed and much more than we ever expected.We wanted you to keep our son on task. In addition, your essay editing was good.The essays truly reflected him.You pulled his own thoughts out of him, I could tell they were his thoughts, not yours.Your report after you and he met was great. It let me know what you accomplished in your meeting and what tasks and by whom were required for the coming week.We were not making any headway in keeping him on task and it was very frustrating to us that he seemed so disorganized, so your help alleviated the frustration and possible (probable!) arguments. I am very likely to recommend you because you filled our immediate need. When I called you, I was in a near-panic mode and you were able to work with our son right away and I felt totally comfortable with you and knew you to be competent.
James, Parent, Charleston SC

We have the highest accolades for Crisp Consulting + Coaching! It was priceless as our daughter worked with Brian throughout the year. His knowledge of schools and students is a gift to every family. Our daughter will be attending a highly selective university on a full academic scholarship this fall. Although we credit our daughter with possessing excellent academics, service, and leadership, we credit Brian with helping her put it all together!
