Hi Allen. Just an update on Ashley!! She graduated from George Washington University as the Distinguished Scholar for the Elliott School of International Affairs. She had a 4.0 average for every semester that she was there! Remarkable!!
She is on her way to Africa in August after receiving the Brown Fellowship to study Swahili in Tanzania! She will be there until next April. We could not be prouder! Feel free to share her story; one of your successful students for sure!

Allen, just wanted to thank you for helping Daniel to succeed in gaining admission to all the schools he applied, including a few I doubted he would. He enjoyed the contact with you and took the pressure off him having to answer our questions. I think it was just what he needed. I would be happy to speak to anyone considering your services!

Allen exceeded all our expectations with the college application process. He was there to answer any questions and kept us up to date on all the paperwork we needed to process. I would recommend Booker College Planning to anyone that has a high school student preparing for college.

Thank you for helping Brittany to evolve. Your ability to connect with her was amazing! The review and suggestions on her essays for applications & scholarships were so invaluable.

Allen Booker’s College Planning Workshop was very beneficial for our high-school age students. He did a great job of catering to our students’ needs and keeping the workshop interesting and engaging. Students were given the chance to express themselves in a positive way and consider how their skills could be used to make them college-ready. Mr. Booker helped our students see that there are college choices out there for everyone, if you take the time to assess yourself first you can find the best for you. Our students had a wonderful time and look forward to having more workshops with Mr. Booker!
—Dr. Monica L. Ridgeway, former Director of Liberty Partnerships Program at Niagara County Community College

The college process itself could possibly be one of the longest, hardest, and stressful experiences one will ever face. With this being said, I believe I owe so much to Mr. Allen Booker for all the help, advice, guidance and assistance on my college planning. To be quite honest, I truly don’t know if I could have done this without him.
When one thinks of college, they think of what they want to go for. However that could possibly be the littlest of one’s worries compared to the actual choice of one of the thousands of colleges in the country, the application process, the financial aid forms, and everything in between. Going into this, I had no idea what to expect, what to do, or just exactly what I would be up against. With his prior experience in college admissions, he knew exactly what to do, what to say on applications that he so generously helped me fill out, and when to have it done. This knowledge was absolutely crucial and I truly do believe that tremendously helped me not only get accepted into all the colleges of my choice, but earning thousands of dollars in scholarships as well.
Mr. Booker took matters into his own hands for me, doing his “homework” as one would like to call it, by searching for colleges that fit my personality, interests, and programs that I strive to be in. Every time we’d meet, he’d have a list of colleges, carrying all the information needed, helping me narrow down my choices. He took matters further by always being just a phone call away, and texting me information regarding college visits, scholarships, applications, etc. It made things so much easier for me, knowing that he was so easily accessible.
I truly do believe that I made the right decision going to the college that I am currently attending. I am saving so much money with a program that suits me. Everything was smooth sailing throughout this entire process and I truly owe so much thanks to Mr. Booker, it was really worth every penny to hire him as my college planner.
