Wendy's knowledge of the universities is extensive and she has a calm, professional manner in such a stressful time… Working with Wendy was absolutely the best decision...  It Saves time, money, and endless frustration.  Katie found Wendy's guidance and knowledge immensely helpful.  With the Pandemic, Lockdown, online schooling, Matric, June exams, Prelims,  finals and the added stress of finding the right university, Wendy's help was well worth the investment.

Wendy was extremely helpful as she has so many resources that make the application process easier. Without her, I and my family would have been completely lost… She was very accessible throughout our time with her and was there to offer help every step of the way.

The different platforms that need to be used, such as the Common App,  appear incredibly daunting when completing your application alone. Being able to ask Wendy for advice on the smallest of details was a big benefit. . Sometimes you just need someone to give you a "yes or no" answer and without Wendy, I would have spent countless hours on google trying to find the correct answer. it is reassuring being able to converse with Wendy, who is an expert in the field, and ask for her advice on your application. It makes the process less daunting and more enjoyable.

Deciding to choose The University Advisor at Varsity Abroad and more specifically working one on one with Wendy is one of the best decisions I have made. Wendy’s vast knowledge of the ins and outs of the application process overseas is absolutely priceless. More so, I had the privilege of working with the most organized, punctual, humorous and hard-working women. Thank you so much for the opportunities you opened up for me Wendy. I can wholeheartedly say that anyone who chooses to work with Wendy will have the same door-opening opportunities as I did.

Wendy's personal touch unlike other companies made me feel at peace with the entire process. Personally, writing essays and preparing for SATs were the most daunting part as the writing style is incredibly different from the type of essays I would usually write. Wendy's editors made this process a breeze. Coming from the NSC curriculum, SAT questions are asked in a different manner and Wendy's comprehensive SAT prep course was a lifesaver. As daunting as the process might be, trust the process and most importantly, trust Wendy. She knows what she is doing and will do everything in her power to aid you through this process.

I applied to universities in both the UK and the US.  Wendy knew both systems inside out & structured a complete project plan around my applications.  We met regularly which helped me select the colleges I wanted to apply to and then always kept me focused on the key next steps.  Wendy encouraged me throughout but also pushed me in those moments when I needed it most. Wendy took away so much of the complexity, stress, and uncertainty in the process.  It’s a lot of work and it can be quite daunting, but the structure and advice Wendy provided kept me on track and helped me improve the overall quality of my applications.
