Client Feedback:

"After our first meeting, my initially reluctant turned enthusiastic daughter said: 'I did not know that there were people out there who could do this for you.' I told her: 'There is only one".

"The best money my wife ever spent."

"When Pam gets involved, good things start to happen with students who were putting off applications and writing essays."

"Pam really knows what she is doing. We met with her for an initial free conference and were impressed with what she had to say. We hired her to help our daughter."

"We don't know what we would have done if we had to do all of this on our own."

"My son kept telling us 'I've got this'. I was not sure that he did have his college tasks under control. I got him to go with me to see Pam Rambo. He has made huge progress working with her and is applying to wonderful colleges that we did not know about."

"Once we got involved in the college application process and realized how complex it was, we realized we needed professional support. That's when we called Pam. She encouraged us, gave us the information we needed to make the best choices for our daughter and was there for us as we needed help from admissions through scholarship processes."

"My son really had trouble with essays. After Mrs. Turner's instruction at a Rambo Research Sponsored Workshop, he got it. His essays were so much better once he understood the formula and worked on his style."

"One day I was arguing with my son over what to wear to an interview with some ivy league colleges. He told me he knew what to wear because professional image expert Suzanne Douglas covered it in the college prep program sponsored by Rambo Research. When we showed up at the interview, he was dressed exactly right for the event."

"We heard about Pam from a friend whose son was doing so well with his college acceptances and scholarships. We enrolled our daughter in her small group college application class and have her working with Pam individually on scholarships to make sure she gets what she needs. She has been accepted everywhere she has applied."

"My grandson does not bond with people easily but he bonded with Pam Rambo. He trusts her, enjoys his meetings with her and has continued to keep in touch with her after going off to college."

"My son was putting off writing his essays. When I heard that Pam has a knack for helping students find their story and encouraging them to tell it through their college admission essay, we went to see her. She helped my son recognize his important gifts and write about activities where he could show them off."

"I enjoy working with Mrs. Rambo. She helps me understand what I need to do and when and makes sure I stay on track."

"I came to Rambo Research because several parents told me that is where I needed to go. Pam Rambo came very highly recommended."

"Her rates are really reasonable and she saved me thousands."

"Pam really connects with teenagers."

"Mrs. Rambo is a magician!"

"I like working with Dr. Rambo because she gets me."

"Pam sees what could be and the very best about my son."

"Thank you, thank you, thank you for everything that you did for me and for continuing to stay in touch."

"I don't know how people do this alone. Pam helped my son put himself in the position to be accepted by the college he wanted and kept me sane in the process. I really felt like I was working with someone who cared about my son's success as much as I do. I've never had that before".

"We can't say enough about Pam Rambo. She changed our grandchild's life."

"Our child would not have gotten into the college she is at without Rambo Research. And the scholarships she won helped pay for the cost."

"Joan Turner really improved our daughter's chances for admission by teaching our daughter how to write a great college admission essay at a Rambo Research workshop."

"The test that she gave our son really helped him understand himself better and choose a college major that was right for him."

"I did not know what to do or where to start when my child was a senior. After the third parent told me that Rambo Research was the place to go for help, I called Pam and, like they said, she really knew what we needed to do."

"Suzanne helped me understand how important my clothes, posture, attitude and handshake can be in a college interview. I know how to present myself now to make a good impression."

"Whenever I hear a parent say they are concerned about their child getting into college, I tell them they need to see Pam."

"Rambo Research took away our anxiety and replaced it with the comfort of knowing our son was making progress and was being guided by a person who knew exactly what he needed to do."

"Working with Pam increased our grandson's confidence."

"Thank for making the college process enjoyable."

"Once we hired Rambo Research, the friction between us and our son subsided and we were able to enjoy his senior year."
