Westendorf Educational Consulting
We strive to assist students in growing their confidence and finding their own voice in the college admissions process. Our goal is for students to realize they have more control in their college admissions journey. We encourage our students to dig deeper, reflect inward and embrace their greatest asset – themselves. We find, the more honest students are with themselves, the more their authentic voice emerges and speaks through their applications.
In the ever-changing admissions marketplace, Westendorf Educational Consulting offers guidance, structure and vision through all facets of college admissions.
Lauren knows teenagers and the college admissions process. This is a powerful combination. Her work with young people on both sides of the proverbial desk, informs the work she does with her families and the way in which she connects with her students.
“Lauren made the tricky transfer process so much easier on our family. She worked as a liaison with the colleges, helped shape my daughter’s essays, and edited/proofread her application. Lauren is a delight to work with. I recommend her highly!”
“A huge ‘Thank You’ for helping our daughter apply to and choose the best university for her. We are convinced American University is a perfect fit. You made the whole process so much more manageable than we expected. We are looking forward to working with you again in the near future!”
“Lauren was a huge help to me and I know my parents greatly appreciated her help and support as well! She had helpful insight regarding so many universities that I would not have otherwise known about. She was truly a wealth of knowledge and an amazing advocate.”
“This is the second time we have used your consulting service and once again it has proven to be a huge success. At such a stressful time for both the student and parent, you have put us at ease throughout the whole process. I especially appreciate the way you worked with my children to help them on such a personal level. You had such a different approach with each one, knowing what their strengths and weaknesses were in regard to their application. You are incredibly knowledgeable about all the Colleges and Universities with their nuances in the application process. You made our children feel more confident and comfortable in the process. Your reminders and gentle nudges helped to keep all deadlines met. Again thank you so much for all that you have done. We would have never survived senior year without you!”
“Working with Lauren is not only just an incredibly beneficial experience, but she makes so many of the stressful situations ones that have solutions and ways to get over the stress. She is so kind and dedicated to everyone she works with and talks to, it’s relieving in itself to just be around her. Without Lauren I honestly don’t know where I would be right now. The college application process is not a joke or something you can slack on and she enforces that strongly. She is very knowledgeable about everything in the business. I’m so grateful to have worked with her.”
