Bobbi made our college search a success and surprisingly- an enjoyable experience! Gentle, friendly yet direct, Bobbi never pushes but instead sensitively prods and guides students through the process. She listens, advises and counsels. Bobbi is always available and treats each student as if he/she is her only client. Thanks to Bobbi's hard work, my son is going to a great school that we believe is the perfect fit for him both academically and socially. We couldn't have done it without her.- Parent, Norwalk, CT
Bobbi has worked with my son and daughter to help them through the college application process. She is extremely organized with excellent follow-through. Bobbi became the sounding board for our children and for me! She helped pick colleges that fit their personalities, interests and educational level. Her assistance in choosing the right topics for the college application essays and teasing ideas out of my children were invaluable. Both had excellent essays that were different and truly reflected their character. My children had very successful college acceptances. However, Bobbi did not stop when they received their acceptances. She continued to help them through the decision making process and in fact, met my daugher for coffee to talk through the pros and cons when she was struggling to make her final decision. We could not have asked for a better experience.- Parent, Westport, CT
As an independent consultant, Bobbi helped both my daughter and son understand and verbalize what they were looking for in a school. Once they came up with a list of suitable options, she helped keep the application process moving forward by setting achievable tasks. Bobbi listened and responded when my children had questions and gently prodded when motivation was needed for “yet another essay”. Her understanding of my children and critical questions regarding written responses helped them to show the colleges who they really were and ultimately resulted in having both of them enrolled in schools where they are proud members and most importantly, happy.- Parent of two students, Westport
I was so impressed by how well Bobbi got to know my daughter, and helped guide her and our family through the college process. Her knowledge, insight, and responsiveness were an invaluable resource.- Parent, Westport, CT
"Bobbi made my college process the most fluid and productive it could have possibly been. She helped me keep organized so that I could have my essays done and my applications prepped by the beginning of Senior year. I was able to focus on my studies throughout what would have been a very stressful semester. Above all else, she really cared about my future and my "perfect fit". She listened to what I wanted from my college experience and helped me set realistic goals for myself. I am forever thankful for all that she has done for me."- Student, Manhattan, NY
Bobbi helped me rise to my fullest abilities and taught me how to take advantage of my talents in order to get into the school of my dreams. I could not have gotten through the experience without her!- Student, Stamford, CT
Bobbi listens carefully to her clients, both students and their parents. After gathering information and getting to know her students she proceeds with enthusiasm and focus as she hones in on best choices. She advises on the best way to achieve goals and helps students to ferret through the enormous amounts of information they are faced with when choosing where to apply to college. Her good humor and delightful manner were an asset during this process.- Parent, Westport, CT
Bobbi Crocker helped our daughter Lauren navigate her way through the murky waters of college applications. For us, the process was completely painless, since Bobbi took control of making sure that all deadlines were met, and all essays were very well edited. Most importantly, Lauren loved working with Bobbi and responded to all of her requests in a timely fashion. We actually believe Lauren had fun during this entire process! We highly recommend Bobbi to any family.- Parent, Westport, CT
"We have worked with Crocker College Consulting twice and the experience has been tremendous. Identifying potential schools, organizing applications, and monitoring deadlines, Bobbi balanced strong commitment to detail with incredible patience. Through one-on-one meetings, she got to know our sons personally, helping them see how to best express themselves in their applications and interviews. Bobbi also was invaluable to us, always available for questions and information, even well after final decisions were made. She helped take so much anxiety out of the process and the results were exceptional. We will use her again!"- Parent, New Canaan, CT
Bobbi was an incredible resource for me throughout the college process. She helped me stay organized and her expertise was always useful in finding the right school for me. She got to know me and understood what I wanted in a college and was always approachable, insightful, and eager to go above and beyond when guiding me through the process. It was very comforting to know Bobbi was there for me!- Student, Westport, CT
TGFB! ( Thank Goodness For Bobbi!) Both of my, completely different, high school students were accepted at their first choice schools! Bobbi consistently provides customized, professional, services. She sets up realistic goals and timelines, while thoughtfully communicating and collaborating at every step of this stressful process. We will definitely use her for our 3rd child!- Mother of 3 - Westport, CT
Our daughter is heading off to college this week. We are so grateful to Bobbi for all of her knowledge, guidance and support. Bobbi is extremely informed and up to date on the application process and the individual universities and colleges. What we really appreciated about Bobbi was how she developed a relationship with our daughter and really got to know her. K felt very comfortable with Bobbi, which was essential to understanding which school would be a good match for her interests and personality. Because of the relationship that Bobbi built with K, they were able to work together to make sure that the application process was completed in a timely manner, which took stress off of us as parents and more importantly off of K. Bobbi also always kept us informed of the next steps in the process. We are so excited for our daughter and thankful to Bobbi for guiding her to her next step!- Parent, Westport, CT
I was in between guidance counselors at my high school and Bobbi really helped me focus on higher education. Bobbi helped me find a good list of schools that I could possibly get into, tutors in my area and helped me brainstorm for my college essay. Without her help and knowledge of higher education I would not have found the school I currently attend.
After I was accepted into schools and graduated high school she helped me with the transition by giving me advice including where to shop for my dorm!
