Dr. Cathy Richter was the driving force in getting both my daughters into the university of her choice. As homeschoolers until the ninth grade, we were uncertain about the entire admissions process and were hoping we had not fallen behind. Dr. Richter presented us with a comprehensive plan meticulously outlining each step of the four year process at our first in-person interview. We were off and running. I cannot describe the relief and gratitude I felt.
Dr. Richter's attention to detail, close observance of the ever important deadlines, and her innate ability to easily navigate the labyrinth of college admissions departments is awe inspiring. My husband and I decided this juncture in our daughters’ education was key - why take a chance with it?
What does Cathy Richter deliver?
2. Peace of Mind
Thank you, Cathy. You are truly a person of excellence in this extremely complicated and specialized field. We are so thankful our girls have these wonderful opportunities because of your efforts.
There were many benefits to working with you, but one of my favorite was your availability! Anytime I had a question, you were quick to find an answer and get back to me. Such a busy senior year made this even more necessary because you were willing and able to find answers for me through your prior knowledge and research that would have cost me an extensive amount of time.
I often had college and scholarship applications that required essays, and you were always willing to edit and perfect my essays. This was helpful because I was guaranteed feedback, and I did not have to seek out help that would have been less available.
Cathy Richter worked with my daughter, Elise Fogg as her Collegiate Prep Consulting guide over the last year. As a result, Elise will be attending the private college of Pace University in NYC this Fall. The relationship & work that Cathy developed with Elise is priceless & I encourage all parents to add Cathy to your Junior or Senior child’s Team.
Cathy took the time to get to know Elise's needs and desires in college options. She identified her strengths & weakness & offers a multitude of tools to help the student identify areas of interest for future study. Cathy does not write essays for your child, but instead helps the student brainstorm possible topics. She was always available to edit or offer suggestions. Her response time with both Elise & myself in communicating with her was amazing & I love how Elise really felt that Cathy was invested in her & her college dreams.
As a result, Elise applied to 12 colleges across the Nation & was accepted to 11 (she was wait listed to the last one). Cathy’s investment wasn’t to just “help” Elise get into any college , but instead to get into a college that would fulfill Elise's goals & dreams. Cathy also helps with the FASFA process & Scholarship essays & offerings & works with students across the Niceville, fwb, Santa Rosa, & Freeport areas.
The last years of high school should be enjoyed with your kids , and not full of college prep stress! Having Cathy on our team allowed for Elise & myself to enjoy the process instead of wanting to pull each others hair out!
We appreciate you, Cathy!
