Scott and I have been professional colleagues for over 30 years. What he doesn’t know about colleges isn’t worth knowing. And nobody is a more fierce advocate for students.”

Dodge Johnson, Independent Counselor, Philadelphia PA

“Scott White changed my life. I was an immigrant kid from Newark. I knew next to nothing about college admissions or how to get accepted by a reputable school.
