We spent thousands of dollars to engage a college counseling agency. They provided my daughter some suggestions and basic information to narrow her college choices, but the agency's feedback was cursory and unhelpful in general. We reached out to SICC just weeks before the deadline. Our Advisor gave detailed suggestions about her application and the all-important personal statement that helped the admission committee understand the reasons for her borderline grades, and allowed her other achievements to shine. As a result, she was admitted to her top school: Ohio University with its prestigious Scripps School of Journalism. We are very grateful for the timely and significant help our SICC Advisor provided.


My two years working with David on three social entrepreneurship team projects was really great. He gave me life and career advice that helped me prepare for law school. I also asked him to write my reference letter. With his help, I got in to the University of Wisconsin. That was my top choice school. They gave me a great financial aid package. Not having huge loans allows me to continue my social entrepreneurship work.


My daughter was unsure about plans for college and didn’t even know how to find her path. Our SICC Advisor helped her believe in herself. He inspired her to focus on her classes, study hard for her ACT, and make tough choices to change her life. She is on her way to great things now. I strongly recommend them to anyone.


David worked extensively with me to prepare my Fulbright Fellowship application. It funded my entire program in public policy at the University of Maryland. The fellowship and degree opened the door for my career at The World Bank. I am very glad I worked with him, and I enthusiastically recommend SICC as a unique and much-needed organization. I really like that they are a non-profit and it gives me confidence in their mission. Their approach to help students get in to a great degree program and make it affordable, I’m sure will help many others like me.


I had an ambitious plan to pursue doctoral studies in piano performance at the Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music. I knew the odds were against me because it’s one of the top conservatories in the world. David worked closely with me through the long application process. He helped me prepare for GRE and TOEFL tests, and helped me with every part of the actual application. CCM also offered me a very generous aid package with a teaching assistantship. It’s great that other students can benefit from this level of direct help through Social Impact College Coaching. Without that help, graduate school would have been impossible.


I asked David for help on my Senior Fulbright Research Fellowship application. My plans were to spend a year at Harvard to research my book on positivism and the philosophy of science. His clear advice helped me get the fellowship. That time at Harvard proved to be crucial for my book. David’s advice was so good, I also asked him to edit my manuscript. We spent two years working on drafts. When The Positive Mind was published, I had to credit David’s fundamental contributions. His efforts were critical and consequential.
