Dr. Pamela’s constant encouragement and advice helped guide me through my high school years!
At a time when the college selection process is extremely demanding and can be very stressful for everyone involved, it is refreshing to have a guide who knows the ropes and brings a personal touch to the process.
The Compass College Advisory Center was a tremendous help to me. It provided a college portal, which allowed me to review information about numerous colleges throughout the country. The one on one sessions were of great value to me. I received the encouragement and support that gave me the confidence that I needed to complete the college application process from the beginning to the end.
If not for Dr. Ellis, I would have been lost in a sea of information. Her help was incredibly useful and I do not know what I would have done without it. Thank you so much, Dr. Ellis!
As a very unsure writer, the college application process seemed daunting. Thankfully, Dr. Ellis was always there to help me through the writing process. Especially near deadlines, she made herself available to me even if she was not in town. We talked over every essay before and after it was written. Dr. Ellis was amazing at guiding me to a good idea for an essay, too. Dr. Ellis was an invaluable resource and helped me talk through my school options to choose the best fit. I could not be happier at Wake Forest and am sure I made the right decision! Thanks to Dr. Ellis the college process went much smoother than it would have on my own.
Dr. Pamela was really a blessing to work with. She provided calm, organization and encouragement
Working with Dr. Pamela Ellis has been invaluable to our son’s college application experience. We would say there are 3 key advantages to her service: 1 - She has been instrumental in identifying and helping our son acquire merit-based scholarships that we were unaware of; 2 - her assistance in the college application and essay process gave our son a competitive advantage which helped him with acceptance into top colleges; 3 - very important to us was that she helped to diffuse the parent/child tension that can develop throughout the college application and especially the college essay process. We feel strongly that our family hit the jackpot for sure--best investment we ever made! Thank you, Dr. Pamela!
Dr. Ellis not only guided me towards writing a unique and personal college essay, she also helped me learn more about myself. The entire college process is rough, but with the help and counsel of Dr. Ellis, I was able to feel confident during interviews, have a solid personal essay, and an organized resume.
I really enjoyed and benefited tremendously from working with Dr. Pamela. She has been a huge help to me as well as my parents along the way. Dr. Pamela was able to open our eyes to many different college options and working with her has been one of the best decisions that we have made.
When I first started the process I did not really know where to begin, but thankfully Dr. Ellis laid out a “roadmap” for me that had key due dates for apps and was my lifeline for getting all of my apps in on time.
I found Dr. Pamela to be approachable, personable, humorous, encouraging, and direct. She goes above and beyond!
Working with Dr. Pamela has been an extremely positive process! I wasn’t sure how to give colleges an idea of myself or my experiences on paper, or how my numbers would “stack up”. Dr. Pamela worked with me to find the colleges I thought would be a good fit. Her genuine interest in getting to know me showed when we edited my essays. Her guidance and answers to questions I had helped me build confidence in my decisions and applications. Not only has working with Dr. Pamela been beneficial through the past months, it has also shown me more about myself and my aspirations.
Working with Dr. Pamela was the best decision I made about preparing for college! The college application process can be stressful but Dr. Pamela helped me through it step by step. She helped me professionalize my essays without bulldozing my ideas to help me find my dream college. The college process seemed impossible, but with Dr. Pamela it was achievable because of her expertise with the process and extensive knowledge of colleges all over the country. She made the college process bearable for me. Now I’m at Rhodes, a school I love. I highly recommend her services, including for finding gap year experiences, which she assisted me with as well.
Dr. Pamela helped us navigate the overwhelming variety of choices for our two children by finding schools that fit their individual ambitions and learning styles. The investment was small compared to payback of having motivated students in the right learning environment!
