Testimonials from some of Juliet’s happy students.
“Last semester I decided to transfer to a new university. The application process was treacherous. With six essays to write and looming deadlines, I consulted Mark Montgomery. He and his associate, Juliet Giglio, helped to reinvent and transform the chaotic and haphazard essays I had written in time to meet the deadlines. Juliet was particularly helpful. She was caring, approachable, easy to be in touch with, and diligent. Simply, she took on my cause as her own and I thank her for it. I’m happy to say that I will be attending Clark University next fall.”

“Honestly, I speak six languages and still can’t find enough words to express how thankful I am to Juliet Giglio for helping me through the graduate admissions process. As an international student from a country where the educational system is completely different from the one in the US, I thought I had set my aspirations too high when decided to apply to an LL.M. program at an American law school. But I have found Montgomery Educational Services and I have never regretted my choice. Juliet was very helpful, thoughtful, easy going, and extremely supportive. I very much appreciate that she found ways for us to communicate disregarding the ten-hour difference between our countries, and that she was very patient and understanding while explaining all the peculiarities of an American admissions process to me. Juliet took my case as her own, she helped me polish my essays and transform them into some quite solid parts of my applications. Weekend or vacation, she was working it through with me, keeping me up with my deadlines. Whatever issues came up, she was there to make a call and help me make everything work. It is thanks to Juliet, her dedication and positive attitude, that I was accepted to several great law schools and will be attending one this fall.
Again, my deepest and cordial gratitude for everything you’ve done!”
“I had done my research on the net before I made the call to you. Everything that I had read online about you was confirmed with our experience. We are very satisfied with the service that Juliet [Giglio] provided for Robbie in the last few weeks of the application process. Although she was on the other coast, Juliet met with him over Skype and guided him through the process very effectively. We are specially grateful for her many edits of the essays that were done in the busy period before Christmas. I truly think that Juliet took some of the pressure off Robbie at that very stressful time. It was a great value for the money. I will definitely keep you in my mind when my younger child goes through college application process. Again, many thanks for providing this service.”
