“Thank you so much for helping me throughout this process and for being so quick to answer any questions I had. Your help was truly invaluable, and I don’t know how I would have gone through this process without your guidance. I will remember the help and advice you have given me for years to come. Honestly, no thank you is large enough. Thank you for helping me realize my full potential and reach my dreams and goals! I can’t wait to become a physician and can’t wait to see the wonderful doctor you become too because after talking to you, I have realized what a kind and willing person you are. So thank you times a million and have a wonderful rest of the remaining school year! I am so happy to be going to TCNJ!” — Successful BA/MD applicant


“Thank you for all the help and guidance you provided to [my daughter]. I’m sure you know that she is heading to TCNJ/NJMS combined 7 year medical program.

I know for NJMS, Molly connected [my daughter] with her friend, who gave necessary advice to her before her interview.” — Father of successful BA/MD applicant


“[My daughter] got lot of interviews (again thanks to you) and as we call it fate or luck but looks like she has landed at the right place.

We went through lot of emotions in this entire journey – pain, sadness and eventually got much needed peace.” — Father of successful BA/MD applicant
