About Me

I was a high school teacher for fifteen years…
Back in 2002, a student of mine wanted to visit Indiana University. The school where I taught didn’t have a college tours program, and the student’s parents didn’t have the resources to get her there. I took it upon myself to take her and another interested student to visit. The convent next to the school said we could use their Ford Taurus and off we went. It was on this trip that I realized the need to expose students to the myriad…

What People are Saying

“My experience working with Sarah was amazing! She helped me come up with ideas for my common app essay, turning a cheesy, poorly written essay into a moving one. Sarah also helped me find colleges that met the criteria I was looking for. 10 out of 10! Would recommend!”

University of Vermont

What People are Saying

“Going into the college process I had a good idea of what I was looking for in a college, but I didn’t know what it was going to take to get into my dream school. Sarah helped me stay organized and motivated throughout the entire process. From helpful college facts to different creativity boosting games, Sarah always pushed me to do my best so I could achieve my goals in the college process. I know without a doubt that I wouldn’t have gotten the good news I was looking for without the help of Sarah.”

University of Texas, Austin

What People are Saying

“I had a phenomenal experience working with Sarah Langford. When we started working together, she took her time to get to know me and made a list of colleges that best suited my personality. She opened my eyes to universities that I had never even heard of and they all had multiple components that interested me. Not only did she work diligently in compiling a list of schools for me, but she also helped me find the perfect topic for my Common App essay and made sure I truly expressed myself through my writing. While filling out the Common App and writing my essay, Sarah was able to answer every question and concern that I had. She responded to my texts and calls immediately and always gave me great feedback. She was very supportive through the entire process, and I truly couldn't have done it without her.”

University of Illinois

What People are Saying

“Before meeting Sarah, I was somewhat skeptical about this process. Sarah helped me tremendously with finding a school that was right for me. Then, she helped advise me on what to do when I visited and interviewed. What I also found very valuable was Sarah's essay help. I met up with her to draft my essay and throughout the process Sarah was there to help revise and give input. Without Sarah's help, I wouldn't have even been introduced to my dream college... let alone get accepted. Thank you, Sarah!”

“Sarah was there for me every step of the process. From finding a balanced list of schools to apply to, to helping me craft my personal story, Sarah was always only a quick text or email away. I wouldn't be going to Stanford without her.”

Stanford University

What People are Saying

“I loved being able to have a person that I could text/email and know that she was willing to help me work through every step of the college application process. When working on all my applications I was able to get hands on help with every essay. It made the whole experience less stressful, and I was able to write well written essays for every college. With the knowledge Sarah had about all schools I was able to find the right college that I didn't expect me to love. Thank you so much for all your help.”

University of Miami

What People are Saying

“I had a great experience working with you. I know for a fact that my essays would not have been as great as they were if it wasn't for your help. Additionally, I truly believe that I would not have gotten into Wisconsin if it wasn't for the work we did on my Wisconsin essay.”

University of Wisconsin

What People are Saying

“I really enjoyed working with Sarah over the past year! Overall, my admission process felt quite crazy and hectic, but Sarah was able to help me navigate through the various applications and essays. While I was never able to meet with Sarah in person, I felt like Sarah really knew me and knew what schools would be a good fit. I applied to almost every school from the list of schools Sarah provided as they all fit what I was looking for and were a good fit for me academically. I’m so grateful for Sarah’s help and guidance!”

Boston College

What People are Saying

“You have been such a great help during the whole college admission process. You really helped us all with figuring out both the general direction of our college search, with the specific intricacies of the Common App, and other such processes. I probably would have done so many things incorrectly, or not at all, if it wasn't for your help.”

Harvey Mudd College

What People are Saying

“I really enjoyed working with Sarah this past year. She was able to suggest schools to me that accounted for what I wanted in a college. She also really helped me kickstart the brainstorming process for my Common App essay through various activities. Sarah was always there when I had questions, but she herself asked me questions that were enlightening when I was confused or struggling to make decisions about essays and helped me make the final decision when it came to choosing which college to attend. Although these questions were hard, they were very beneficial to making the best decisions possible.”
