What others have said about workshops by Marcia Cantarella:

"I am a rising high school senior. I met you at The College Guidance workshop on Wednesday. It was my pleasure meeting you. I was amazed as you talked about college life. I learned a lot from the conference. I am also learning from your book. As I was reading it I discovered many important facts to keep on mind while applying for college. Before reading the book I never thought how important can those information be in the long run.

I just wanted to thank you for taking your valuable time and talking to us. I have took several notes as you spoke that day. I will use every advice you gave us in person and in your book. Ream, my aunt became a fan of yours after she finished reading the book. She advises me about college in general. She was glad that I attended the workshop because I have a better knowledge about college life now. "
