What “We’re Growing” Means for LCS Families

We'll get to College of Charleston, as promised, next week. Here's an important update!

Juniors with an IEP, the next class valedictorian, and everyone in between will benefit from the additions starting in the 2025 admissions cycle at Less College Stress Consulting.

New Team of Essay Specialists

While I will still oversee the essay process, each student will be assigned a best-fit essay coach. Previously, I have engaged longtime writing professor Lisa Leskiw to use her “second pair of eyes” to review essays. Now, Lisa is leading our essay team. This experienced group of writers, writing coaches, and editors understand what college essays must accomplish and are excited to begin advising LCS students. Students applying to very competitive colleges must often write more complicated essays. Getting feedback from several professionals, like published authors do, will ensure that every essay is written to impress college admissions readers. The new Essay Video will be premiering soon! 

Executive Functioning Support

Who among us couldn’t use help organizing our many tasks to simplify completing them by a deadline? Now, students who become overwhelmed and/or procrastinate can count on a helping hand. Our new consultant, Samantha Fruhling, has years of experience in this area and holds a certification in executive functioning coaching.

New Independent Education Consultant

My policy is to not overextend myself. That’s why I turn away latecomers who contact me for help with Comprehensive or Essay Packages each year. While welcoming Samantha to the practice means I can support more students, rest assured that my role has not changed: I will continue to be your primary consultant. Having the essay team’s help with the most time-consuming part of the application process will allow me to spend more time addressing the needs of parents and students. Our team will work together on research, list building, contacting colleges, and every part of the application process for you.
