From Tom Miller's Mom

The Ivy League Connection is a great concept and we couldn't have asked for a better way to expose our son to what 'East Coast schools' are really all about. It was a rare opportunity to get beyond the campus tours that frankly, start to sound the same no matter whether it's at an East Coast school or a West Coast school, a private school or a public one. Getting to meet and talk informally with admissions officers was eye-opening for Tom. The very best part of the program for me was the emails and phone calls that Tom and I shared during his course at Yale. Teenagers rarely want to have that kind of deep conversation with parents and the experiences he was having were rich and profound and he wanted to share them. Overall, I think the program gave him confidence in his abilities vis a vis other "smart" kids he met there.

Thanks again for your leadership and commitment to this program. Hope you enjoyed it as well!

Best regards,

Gina Moreland
