Congratulations Note from Meg, the college doula.

“We have had a great experience with Meg Mahoney. She got to know my daughter extremely well over the course of the application process, the decision process and, finally, the gap year process. Her knowledge, judgment and compassion were fantastic. She had just the right touch with my daughter. Deciding to work with Meg was a great move for us.”

D.P. Dartmouth College, '25

When I first started the college application process I was so lost, I had no idea where I wanted to go, what I wanted to do, or even where to start. Working with Meg made the process seem so much easier and I loved that I was able to reach out to Meg whenever I had a question. Knowing that I had someone to help me along the way made applying to college so much more stress free!”

"I've really enjoyed working with Meg! She was a positive and attentive counselor who clearly cared about my personal goals and growth. I could not have been as organized, motivated, and on-track as I was during the entire college process without Meg. Thank you, Meg for being by my side at all times and helping me find the school of my dreams!"

Successful College Admissions Counselor. Note card saying congratulations to student on college acceptance.

“We started the process late because of a move in the middle of high school and a very rocky start to junior year. I was so worried for my senior about how things would turn out, and how we would conquer this phase in addition to all the other changes she was already facing. Despite starting the process late, Meg assured us that we still had plenty of time to make things work. Meg was so incredibly helpful in alleviating all our fears and guiding our daughter down a calm and precise path, helping her navigate the whole college process from start to finish. I know this saved our household from lots of tears, arguments and negativity. I can’t express enough how attentive and available she was during this entire process for both my senior and myself! "

College Acceptance Congratulations Note from College Admissions Counselor, The College Doula, Meg Mahoney.

“PSA for Friends and colleagues with kids; Meg Mahoney is an outstanding college counselor. My daughter had an amazing resource in-house at her school, but Meg advised her on her application package; essays and activities page to help her stand out and make shine. She got into her school of choice. We are so grateful for Meg's expertise and overall style of humor and encouragement to help our student do their best work. We will be using Meg’s full service for our second daughter! 💯👩🏻‍🎓 Contact College Doula today!!”

Meg has been from the beginning thoughtful, energetic, responsible, active, and thorough in her counseling of my son. From the start, F. empathized with her, which made the process of choosing, applying and deciding what he wanted to study and where to attend so much easier. Meg has shown us that she is not only knowledgeable in her counseling, but also realistic in directing him towards what colleges to apply, taking into consideration his grades, capabilities, and persona. I would definitely recommend Meg. She made this whole process (which can be really stressful) enjoyable for both F. and me.

We had an absolutely fantastic experience with Meg! The whole process was planned and executed to perfection and the end result could not have been better! Meg was superb and we truly enjoyed working with her. She is inspirational,very organized, disciplined and advises and follows through consistently. We had a truly remarkable experience with Meg, and there was never a negative moment in all the weeks of counseling. I would definitely recommend Meg over and over! Meg is just great and we truly and we truly appreciate what she did for us!!

Congratulation's on getting into college note. Note with pendcil, brown envelope and pine cone.

"Meg was very helpful in helping K. select a topic for her essay and then narrow that topic to something that really spoke to her. Meg asked great questions to support K. in her work but did not tell her what to write or change any of K's work. K. applied to 11 colleges and got into all 11. Two admissions counselors reached out to her and told her it was her essay that was the deciding factor to her admission. It was by far the strongest part of her application".

Congratulations note from college admissions counselor for getting accepted into college. The college doula helps highschool students get into their dream college.

"Meg is not only extremely knowledgeable and business-like in her advice but also empathetic and caring. Having gone through the college admissions process with our older daughter without an advisor, we were unsure whether this would be useful. She made a big difference for us. We are extremely grateful".

You kept us all on track and made something monumental seem doable and not so bad. I hope you see these achievements as yours as well because none of it Would have happened if not for you and we tell everyone that.
