Acceptances

The college-counseling program started by Dr. Mae Sakharov in 1983 has guided students to many fine colleges and universities.Our personalized approach has always been focused and individualized towards each individual student and their particular strength. This year as in the past our students have been accepted by many fine colleges and universities.

We carefully research schools based on a thorough understanding of each student. We then take that information to develop a list of colleges in which that student will succeed. We put as much energy into finding the right Ivy League fit as the appropriate program for a student with a special talent or learning difference.

What They Say

Where do I begin. Thank you very much for all your help, guidance and support over the last 10 years. From high school to college to graduate school, there was no challenge too great for us to conquer! Your heart is beautiful and will be brought to work to remind me of where I have come. It was great.

Cara

I can't thank you enough for everything you've done to help and support Blake. Your direction on the essay was just outstanding - as was your input throughout the process. I have a very good feeling about the way things are going to unfold. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Joyce

At SVA's annual film festival, called The Dusty's, Jesse won best editor, best director and runner up for best film. Needless to say, we were/are thrilled and so is he. All the winners had to give acceptance speeches and he was very gracious, funny and generous. He is living in NYC in the Lower East Side, has a wonderful network of fellow filmmakers, photographers, artists who help each other out and party hard together. So a very happy ending (and beginning) for Jesse and we thank you again for everything you did for him.... recognizing his unique qualities and steering him towards SVA. We would love to send you his award winning film.

Marty

Thank you again for all the help you gave me in guiding me towards the right school. Without your knowledge of the area, I would have never looked at Drew, now I am going to be attending their fall semester! As you said, they have a fantastic ability to work with students with special needs, I have nothing but praise for the people I have met there so far. 


Nick

I just committed to Bryn Mawr College!! Thank you so much for all of your guidance this past year; it has truly been invaluable. I hope to talk with you about majors and career paths that would be good for me.

Allison

I have been accepted to Manhattan School of Music. Thank you for your sound advice and warm words of support. I felt the style you suggested for the letter of recommendation had a great influence on the program's director. 


Julie




Thank you for all you have done to support and guide our daughter over the years. Your encouragement to pursue her passions was life-altering for all of us. We will always be grateful and know that you will continue to influence her future. All the best to you Dr. Mae, you are the best.

David

Thank you so much for coming to my dinner last night. You have meant so much to me as a mentor and friend over the past five years, and I am glad that we were able to get together before I start on my next journey. You are an amazing and inspirational person, with an inspiring life story. I am proud to count you among my friends. Thank your for the bracelet you gave me it is absolutely lovely and your company at dinner was-as always-exceptional.

Thank you again for everything. I will sure to send you my latest pictures of falcons and temples along the way!

Emma

Thanks Mae for your help today. My daughter and I were very pleased with the way you worked and made us feel comfortable. You are a real professional!

Tom

Congratulations to Dr. Sakharov for a moving and significant piece and -- not least -- for her correct use of Standard Yiddish in transliterating "khazeray."


Hershl Hartman, Board sec'y., Yiddishkayt L.A.

On behalf of our entire family, I would like to thank you for all your support and assistance as we have worked through many of the educational goals and dreams with our children. You have truly been a gift to us and we are grateful to have you in our lives. 


Marilyn

This is a very belated thank you for helping Sean and then Emma with their college searches. Sean took your advice and is studying Sports Communications at Marist College. Great News - he loves the school saying he feels more at home there than he ever did at this former school! The support is wonderful and the professors are excellent. Emma was accepted at Boston College, University of Virginia and Villanova and is waiting on others. We can't wait for you to work with our 16 year old daughter who is very artsy and will be taking a different route.

Dr. Sakharov believes that "your life is your own sculpture."
She helps students to develop the "artist within" and to create the lives they were meant to live.
