Neither I nor NEPA Career & College Counseling Associates make any guarantee regarding your student’s admission to college, your student’s ability to obtain employment in any specific field, or your student’s receipt of financial aid or student loans. NEPA Career and College Counseling may express an opinion concerning the likelihood of admission, but cannot guarantee any student’s admission to any particular college or university, as admission decisions are made solely by the college or university admissions committee, and are dependent on a variety of factors outside of any independent educational consultant’s control including but not limited to institutional priorities, GPA and school rank, standardized test scores, high school/college reports and transcripts, teacher/professor recommendations, meeting deadlines, and quality of college interviews.
2016 HAPPIE AWARDS (November 4, 2016)
I received wonderful news today. For the third year in a row, I have been awarded 2 Happie Awards for Best College Counselor and Best Tutoring Service. I want to thank my students, parents, family, and friends for voting for me. I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart. For those of you that know me (I mean really know me), you know that I am very passionate about my business and how I enthusiastically work with all of my students and families throughout the career and college planning process.
This is a wonderful honor and I will work even harder to keep my students and families HAPPIER in 2017! I love every one of you! God Bless! I would not have gotten this far without the love and support of my husband, Christopher, who encourages me every day! And, my family, especially my dear father who passed away in 2014. His inspiration, love, and support is the reason for my passion and love for what I do.
A NOTE FROM JENNIFER SEVERINI-KRESOCK, MS (September 2016)
Imitation is the greatest form of flattery. There may be others who have this type of business, My commitment, dedication, enthusiasm,cutting edge expertise, and concern for my students will never be found anywhere. I will go to the ends of the earth for my students’ and parents’ satisfaction in career and college planning. I offer the lowest rates and the best convenient service of any career and college counselors/consultants in this area or outside the area.
Please call me for more information and rates (570-702-5700). In addition to my packages (which are all new this year), I have a standard career and college planning program also. I will also adjust any services to meet the needs of the individual student.
I do not post on my website, Facebook, or any where else where my students are being admitted to schools. I believe that my students are accepted at awesome institutions because of their outstanding achievements and amazing academic abilities. I serve as the guide in the process–the student deserves the accolades, certainly not me or my business.
I hope all students have a wonderful school year and I hope I can work with you on career and college planning. Thank you.
