About Us

Patti Demoff and Peggy Saferstein have been advising students on college admissions since 1986. Suzanne Rubenstein, the "new" partner, joined them in 1999.

Drawing on a wealth of experience and expertise in all aspects of college admissions, we are knowledgeable about the particular interests of student athletes, actors, journalists, scientists, musicians, linguists, artists and students with learning disabilities.

Although most of our clients come from Southern California, we frequently work with students all across the country. We have also advised students attending secondary school in foreign countries, including England, Switzerland, India, and Russia.

Each of us is a member of the National Association of College Admissions Counselors (NACAC) and its regional affiliate WACAC, and each has earned a Certificate in College Counseling from the UCLA Extension program.

To assure the personal attention that applying to college requires, we work with a limited number of students, and never use assistants. Our senior group is capped at a total of thirty.
