I honestly don't know what I would do if it wasn't for Dori's help and guidance. I was overwhelmed with the process of college applications and financial aid profiles. I immediately trusted her from our first meeting and she put my mind at ease. The several meetings she had with my daughter were invaluable because Ally was very much a part of the process and in turn took ownership and felt empowered. She put her in charge of tasks and made sure each week these were accomplished. As a result of Dori's dedication and efficient work, Ally got into her dream school! We could not have done it without her."

Dori Middlebrook has been the saving grace of our college application process. After sitting down with our daughter and helping her narrow her choices, Dori guided her through the maze step by step. Our daughter soaked up everything Dori told her. We didn’t have to “nag” her. And because we were as stressed and anxious as she was, it was so good to have her take us all through this, ease our fears, and answer our many questions. "
Thank you so much for all your keen insight and incredible organization this year. You took the fear out of a very complex process and helped us uncover and secure successes and opportunities we would not have found on our own. Every college bound senior needs a Dori! You remained our objective advocate and you quickly diffused those stressful distractions and kept us on a productive, healthy path. College is a big investment. The process isn't what it used to be and your junior and senior years are so busy. Having an experienced advisor was really helpful. I would recommend you to any college bound student and parent."

Dori is a steady calmness, practicality, and confidence in the sea of emotions that is college application season. Her realistic encouragement is as valuable as her insight and know-how."
I think we spared ourselves a lot of frustration and stress having Dori help us."
Dori was really helpful when it came to finding a school that would really fit what I wanted in a college experience…She helps you stay on top of things and makes the whole process a whole lot easier. She is really easy to talk to and I always felt comfortable telling her my opinion on the colleges."
Dori helped me immensely during the madness of my application process! With a full load of schoolwork, homework, sports and extracurricular activities, doing applications would've been nearly impossible without her. Having those weekly meetings with her gave me a quiet break from the rest of my busy life and an oppotunity to focus solely on applications...Dori was incredibly accessible and was always available if I had a quick question or concern."
You were great Dori! You helped me decide where to apply"
I wouldn't have even known where to begin if I didn't have you, so thank you!"
