From parents

We very much recommend Top College Consultants and Eric Endlich to anyone who cares about the future of their children.

Our son is on the autism spectrum. When he became sophomore and the time came to think about college, we were terrified. He was attending a program for special need kids and, although his performance improved lately, we had serious doubts that he accumulated enough credits to get accepted to college. Especially since he wanted to be an engineer, and engineering programs are generally more selective. That was the time when we hired Top College Consultants and started working with Eric Endlich. The results exceeded our wildest dreams. At the end our son was accepted to 7 colleges out of 10 he applied to. The process was surprisingly painless, basically Eric and the boy managed it between themselves with little supervision from us. And at the final stage we enjoyed another unexpected benefit of our collaboration: Eric helped our son to make the right choice. That alone saved us more money than the services cost. We very much recommend Top College Consultants and Eric Endlich to anyone who cares about the future of their children.

Hire him now. Eric is exactly the person you want on your team.

Eric is a brilliant college counselor for anybody – he knows the schools, he knows the processes, he has good strategies, he is a great editor for statements & personal essays, etc.
But for kids like ours – Eric is a dream come true. He speaks to them on their level, with personal experience. He recognizes & validates concerns, he is patient & nonjudgmental. He earns their respect & their ear. He is the college counselor for them.

More — he is plugged-in for those minor things that make an enormous difference. He has detailed knowledge about various schools & their accommodations, he knows their ‘climate’ toward students with spectrum disabilities. His information is always current, cogent, and helpful.

Finally, Eric is a known figure in the spectrum/education community. He is aware of cool opportunities that can be amazing –scholarships, speaking opportunities, conferences, etc. Our kid, River, guest-spoke on multiple panel discussions & blogger interviews. River was an actual Advocate – a voice for spectrum kids in the college-app process! What amazing experiences these were! Cannot thank Eric enough for them.

The college-search period is tough, and you have one chance to do it right. If you are able to have Eric on your team, you will be better for it.

My son found his perfect school in Canada and he’s thrilled. So am I.

Jamey was an excellent match for my son. He was calm, insightful, and he helped my son navigate the college process with patience and finesse. My son’s academic record was a bit of a roller coaster, due to Covid and various other factors, and Jamey recognized the value and wealth of my son’s extracurriculars as well as his in-school work.

He elevated my son’s self esteem by reminding him of all his talents as well as his academic abilities.

I’m a professional writer and Jamey’s editing was fantastic; he recognized places to enhance my son’s essay that I wouldn’t have thought of. My son found his perfect school in Canada, and we leave in two days for his first year at his new school in a new country, and he’s thrilled. So am I.

Jamey was part of that success.

Eric is amazing at what he does!!! He is so thorough, thoughtful, responsive, and completely dedicated to the students he serves. In just a few sessions, he helped my reluctant son get oriented to and motivated about the college search process. He also is great at guiding parents. I can’t recommend him highly enough!!!

Eric was incredibly helpful in supporting my son through his college-application process. He assisted us with developing a college list based on multiple criteria, provided excellent feedback on essays, and was consistently supportive and encouraging throughout, providing gentle reminders when necessary and ensuring that all deadlines were met. What’s more, since my son was home educated through high school, Eric also helped me in developing the additional documentation and letters I needed to provide. My son is now enrolled at his dream college and looking forward to this next chapter of his life!

Lori Dunlap

Eric is a terrific college consultant and advisor that assisted my daughter in finding the right educational program and supported her through the college application process. Eric was very responsive to us and offered valuable guidance to us through the whole process. He developed a college list based on the interests of my daughter and our criteria. Eric had been a great help on the essay preparation for my daughter. He went through the essay questions with her and guided her to write the essays, demonstrating her interests, goals and capability in future college life. All these led to the very successful outcome from her applications. She had received admissions from ten schools and eight of them offered a scholarship to her.

I hired Eric to help my son explore and identify appropriate graduate education programs, to help with the application process and to assist with selecting the best school.


Eric was a pleasure to work with throughout the process. He was very fair and easy to work with during the engagement phase and patiently educated all of us on the various graduate programs and related requirements. What we found particularly important was Eric’s initiative to reach out to schools with Stephen’s transcript to determine if he would be a good candidate. This saved a lot of time and helped Stephen target the right programs. Eric worked with Stephen over several months to craft the required application essays and resumes. They set dates each week around Stephen’s busy undergraduate schedule to connect, review progress and resolve issues. Part of the plan was to avoid any last-minute stress associated with application deadlines. Eric’s turnaround for feedback, comments and questions was extremely fast. Everything was completed in plenty of time and the applications were submitted early.

Most importantly are the end results. Stephen was accepted into all seven programs that he applied to including one or two that are ranked among the best in the country. Eric is now helping Stephen compare the schools to find the very best fit.

Overall, I would highly recommend Eric as a consultant. He is reasonably priced, worked very diligently with my son, provided quick follow up and scheduled everything to be done well in advance of the deadlines. The outcome was fantastic and well above expectations. Stephen said he really enjoyed working with Eric who was patient and encouraging throughout the process.

Eric is an amazing college counselor for our family! My son benefited a lot from his guidance in the college application and the transition.

Our family relocated to the US several years ago with very little knowledge about the college application process. Fortunately, Eric provided very professional support to my son through the whole process. We are thrilled when my son was admitted by Rutgers which not only fit into his academic interest in computer science but also provides an excellent program to support students with special needs. Even after my son started college Eric continued to provide various support and resource as needed.

Eric’s support is always very kind, insightful, resourceful, and fast! I’m so grateful to have had Eric as our counselor over those years. I’d highly recommend Eric to any students.

From students

Eric Endlich was the reason I got into UC Berkeley, Sciences Po, University of Michigan, and many more. It was amazing how I could finish an essay at noon and he would have edited it by 1 pm. His suggestions and advice was insightful and were presented with honesty and empathy. Could not recommend him more!

Benjamin Gicqueau

Eric is excellent! He helped me to find a college that is perfect for me. I have found my place in college and found my passion thanks to his help, and he made the process infinitely less stressful.
Emily Porelle

I had the chance to work with Eric during my application process for a Master’s in the US. As a French national who knew little about the American application process, it was really reassuring to have someone who knew the system inside and out and could provide valuable advice. I also loved how available Eric was throughout the entire process. He was able to check and correct my numerous application letters in short periods of time, and I could always count on him to answer any questions I had. I really am grateful and I would recommend Top College Consultants anytime – it was 100% worth it!

I’m reaching out to let you know that I received my acceptance to Northeastern’s Boston Campus! I am so beyond thrilled, and I can not thank you enough for making this dream possible for me. My work with you was invaluable. The process not only helped get me into my dream school but taught me a great deal in the process. Your kindness and support are much appreciated.

From colleagues

Your session was excellent. The fluency with which you spoke about neurodiversity and how to support students was masterful. It was impressive. Of course, I hope you take the compliment from me as a fellow counselor; however, the feedback from the parents in attendance — and the several who have already watched the recording! — has been overwhelmingly positive. They were so appreciative of the opportunity to hear from you and to understand the options and pathways moving forward. For this I think you! And I certainly hope we can do it again next year! With great thanks, Jeff

I have had the pleasure of being Eric’s mentee. With his wealth of firsthand knowledge and personal experiences, he has a plethora of options to suggest. He does not hesitate to share his knowledge and continues learning about new programs and schools. Meeting the needs of each individual client is his focus. His depth of knowledge includes options other than 4-year colleges such as community colleges, gap year, bridge and support programs. He is always available for questions and will work out the right pacing for each family and student. I truly respect him as a coach and experienced counselor for students of all abilities.

Eric Endlich, Ph.D. was one of the speakers at our 2020 conference and his sessions were top down one of our most insightful and popular. Make no mistake, Eric is one of the best in the business. His extraordinary professionalism, coupled with his breadth and depth of knowledge in the college planning and transition space is bar none. Never mind he is one of nicest people you will meet and a pleasure to work with.
