"Bruce's approach was personalized and empowering. Our son learned more about himself and was able to confidently apply to all of his colleges early so he could enjoy his senior year".

I would recommend GCSA's services to anyone who is navigating this overwhelming process.

My son really enjoyed working with Bruce through the entire college process. He had no idea where he wanted to go and wasn’t able to go on any tours Junior year because of COVID. Bruce helped him form a list of schools, helped him to do research on his list and then worked closely with him throughout the application process. My son wanted to own the process and only work with Bruce (no input from Mom or Dad). Most importantly, Bruce helped him make his final choice based on a whole list of criteria. I would recommend Bruce’s services to anyone who is navigating the overwhelming process.

Working with GCSA helped expand my college search.

Working with Bruce provided me with an extremely important outlet to expand my college search. Bruce helped me develop every single one of my essays that would eventually be turned into each school as well as reviewing decisions over whether to send in test scores or not. Bruce helped me down the path by guiding me and offering the best possible advice. If I ever had a question about anything I could send him a text or an email to get a quick and reliable reply. As a student, I would definitely recommend Bruce to help you with your college decisions.

There was a clear process and plan.

I really appreciated the personalized attention. Dr. Neimeyer took the time to listen to what I wanted and found schools that matched that. The process of finding the right school and then applying to them didn't feel overwhelming. There was a clear process and plan.


Also, having all of my applications in by the end of October and knowing I got into my first choice school before the holidays was such a relief. I've been able to enjoy my senior year. Thank you for working with me.

As the youngest of seven first-generation, college bound students, I've pursued a career that allows me to continue my parents belief in the transformative power of higher education by helping families achieve this goal for their children.

During my early years in this profession, after giving my admissions presentation, a prospective student's father expressed his gratitude for my thorough presentation. He explained how informed he and his student now felt and exponentially less stress-out about it.


His comments affirmed for me that why I went into this career was actually working!


I was helping families and specifically students understand


  • what careers and college majors were of most interest to them,
  • where and what they could study &
  • how to create a strategic admissions application so that admissions committees could really KNOW them and improve their probability for gaining admissions.
