EXCELLence Performance made THE difference in helping me to get into the college of my dreams! From identifying the right school for me, to preparing for portfolio reviews and interviews, getting letters of recommendation, to navigating the FAFSA, scholarships and financial aid process, I truly believe that I would not be where I am today without their assistance.  It was everything I could have asked for and more! Thank you!
