    Jack played an absolutely critical role in my success at the Wallace E. Carroll School of Management at Boston College. After two meetings with Jack, my outlook on schoolwork was drastically changed for the better. He helped me take a step back and identify the specifics of what classes were asking of me. He guided me through breaking down long-term projects, papers, and exam prep into efficient blocks of intense focus. Jack not only saved me time and stress, but also yielded incredible results as I finished my first semester with a 3.86GPA, Dean’s List First Honor, and a spot in the top 4.2% of my class.

  2. Boston Consulting Group

    I was recently fortunate enough to receive a job offer from the Boston Consulting Group, and can say with confidence that I would not have received an offer without Jack’s help.

    Jack broke down a complex and intimidating process into manageable chunks. He helped me streamline my preparation, craft strong responses to the highest probability questions, and gave me the confidence I needed to succeed in live interviews. Jack brings a level of subject matter expertise and passion that few people can offer. I consider myself incredibly lucky to know Jack and to have had the opportunity to work with him – I cannot recommend Jack enough.

  3. Would recommend to everyone looking to take the next step in academics or career

    Trying to get the attention of coaches and GMs of professional teams without representation can make for a difficult and unsuccessful time. Jack’s professionalism and personal experience in athletics makes him a huge asset in helping further a career.

    Jack exceeded my expectations of communication with myself and teams of all professional levels, which was a great feeling to have. Super reliable and will do anything you ask that he can. Great guy to work with and would recommend to everyone looking to take the next step in their academics or career.

  4. Jack’s methodical approach allowed me to stand out

    Having been waitlisted at my top choice school, Jack’s methodical approach allowed me to stand out amongst a pool of 6,000 waitlist applicants and ultimately receive acceptance at a renowned Ivy League university.  Jack was extremely cooperative and supportive throughout the entire process.  Not only did his unique strategies get me off the waitlist within the first week of May, but when visiting the school a few weeks later, the admissions representative already knew so much about my background and desire to attend before I even introduced myself. I can’t stress enough how grateful I am to have partnered with Jack and I strongly recommend any other waitlist applicant to do the same.

  5. Prestigious Ivy League acceptance thanks to Jack

    Any student suspended in “waitlist limbo“ can understand the feeling of helplessness and waning confidence in their future plans. Partnering with Jack was a very positive experience from our first conversation with him and throughout his proactive process during those time-sensitive weeks.  Jack was very insightful and perceptive in his approach, with strategies to help our senior actively navigate from waitlist status to acceptance into a prestigious Ivy League university.  We are grateful to Jack for the key role he played in this success and recommend his services to families seeking help through the wait list or pre-college process.

  6. Jack goes above and beyond to make sure his clients achieve their goals

    My decision to transfer schools was rather last-minute. Despite having to work with tight deadlines, Jack was able to provide invaluable assistance in streamlining and organizing the logistics involved in applying to college. He was incredibly supportive of me both during and after the application process, often checking in on me well after I enrolled at the University of Illinois.
    Jack’s personability and professionalism always shine through his work. He trulygoes above and beyond to make sure that his clients achieve whatever it is they’re striving towards. I can say with confidence that I’d recommend Jack to anybody I know.

  8. Hiring Jack to work with my daughters was one of the best decisions I’ve made this year!

    Entering the world of internship search is daunting and confusing — especially for college students just learning to look for jobs. Jack Delehey expertly guided my twin daughters through the process of creating resumes and LinkedIn pages, and he showed them how to use them. Next he helped them determine what they were interested in doing and led them to internships that might draw out their strengths and sharpen their weaknesses. All along, he was encouraging and inspired them to reach beyond what they thought they could do. Hiring Jack to work with my daughters on this search was one of the best decisions I’ve made this year!

  9. I am so thankful for his help

    Jack’s advice throughout the job search process was extremely helpful and very knowledgeable.  He was always easy to reach and helped me immensely with interview prep, cover letter writing and writing and editing various letters and emails to multiple companies.  He took a lot of the stress off of finding a job while finishing up my senior year at CU Boulder.  I am so thankful for his help and happy to say I graduated with an excellent full time job starting this summer!

  10. I cannot recommend Jack highly enough to high school juniors and seniors

    I worked with Jack Delehey through a waitlist process and a re-applicaiton process during my gap year, and I can not recommend him highly enough to high school juniors and seniors. Throughout both processes, Jack laid out an incredibly detailed plan which included weekly task lists, deadlines for major tasks, realistic chances about all of my perspective colleges, as well as incredible essay editing and reviews. Jack was in constant contact with me whenever I needed something or had a question, and he also sent weekly updates to my parents in order to keep them up to date on our progress. Despite traveling through Southeast Asia for three months during the critical time of the college process, Jack was still able to schedule Facetimes and stay in constant contact with me. Overall, Jack’s attention to detail, incredible work ethic, and honesty, made the college process a low stress, and smooth experience. I am so excited to be attending one of my top choice schools, the University of Virginia, and I owe Jack a major part of that success.

  11. Extremely impressed by Jack’s professionalism

    Jack was a great help throughout the stressful–and seemingly endless–waitlist process. I was extremely impressed by his professionalism and willingness to help in any way (even with college processes other than the waitlist, such as financial aid). His credibility surpasses many college counselors, based on his comparatively recent and personal experience being put on the waitlist at Vanderbilt.
    When my admissions representative at Wellesley called and informed me that I had been taken off the waitlist, I was thrilled! Even more exciting, perhaps, was the news that I was her first choice as a waitlisted applicant. She told me how impressed she was by my commitment to the school, and all the ways in which routinely I showed her I was qualified. I would not have known to do this if it had not been for Jack’s guidance!
    In essence, I highly recommend Jack and his services if you find yourself waitlisted at your top school(s), or need help with the college process in any other manner. There’s no time to waste!

  12. So thankful we found Jack

    Having Jack as a consultant for Molly was so comforting in a time of super-high anxiety.  Jack was such a wealth of knowledge and a breath of fresh air during the most stressful time of the college application process. Jack’s understanding of the process and confidence in getting off the waitlist were extremely helpful.

    The entire college process is so confusing and complicated.  As a parent of a first-time college student I was amazed at the amount of information we were expected to learn and process and then apply…then we found Jack and the confusion disappeared.

    I am so thankful we found Jack come waitlist time.  His skill, support and encouragement during an emotionally loaded time period were exceptional.  Jack knows the college application system inside and out.  He has contacts at multiple institutions and, most importantly, he has the ability to connect with both the student and parent in a very comfortable, laid-back yet professional manner.

    Thanks to Jack, Molly was accepted to her dream school, Wellesley College!

  13. His services are priceless.

    We asked Jack for help later in our process then we could have – I wished we had Jack on board in Jared’s junior year rather then us beginning our work together with him in fall of senior year. Regardless – his services are priceless! Jack jumped right into where Jared was in the process and hit the ground running immediately. I would highly recommend any parent of a junior in high school to have Jack on board for help with the beginning of the college process and throughout. Jack was available to Jared nearly at all times and always offered advice and assistance in ways my son could very much relate. Jared was accepted to his top school – NYU – and could not be happier. We would highly recommend Jack to any family looking for assistance and will be back for his services again for more of our children when their college process begins!

  14. He was an external voice in the process that turned out to be invaluable

    As a parent ushering two young men through the deadlines, applications, and choices that are now required for acceptance into college – I found Jack’s assistance very helpful.  Jack was able to coordinate with the boys to make sure they were considering good options, had submitted for deadlines on time and to support me in getting the boys through the “system”.  He was an external voice in the process that turned out to be invaluable.  On their way now to Northern Illinois and Whitewater Wisconsin and we appreciate Jack’s time and contributions to making that happen.

  15. Constant Encouragement, Creativity, and Diligence

    Before working with Jack, I thought my internship search would be strictly overwhelming and stressful. His counseling was the driving force behind not only keeping me organized, but also extremely motivated throughout the entire process. I found that I gained a whole new level of confidence from Jack’s preparation.

    Jack provides a unique perspective and understanding of the job search that balances hard work with positivity. He helped me master everything from networking to interviewing. I am entirely impressed by his constant encouragement, creativity, and diligence. In the end, Jack helped me present the best version of myself in every professional encounter I faced. Because of Jack’s guidance, I am incredibly excited to start my internship with J.P. Morgan this summer!

  16. Very Helpful

    Throughout my college and scholarship search process, Jack was very helpful. He contacted me to originally get organized and find out exactly what I was looking to get out of our time together. From then on, he sent me various opportunities and was always available to help when I had questions. Jack wanted me to reach my goals and he wanted to be sure I was pleased with the outcome. I will be attending Clemson in the fall, my dream university, with the help of Jack. He can ease this process for any student who is willing to try

  17. Informative and Worthwhile

    Overall, Jack’s advice and my time spent with him were far more informative and worthwhile than any other person or event throughout my senior year. Balancing honesty, optimism, and thoughtfulness exceptionally well, Jack provided a unique type of guidance that I did not find elsewhere in the overwhelming college search. Even now as a freshman at Harvard, I am still benefiting from the suggestions he gave me on how to approach freshmen year and adjust to college life. Thus, not only did Jack’s wisdom help me through the strenuous college process, but he also provided me with the most accurate and useful depiction of college I ever received.

    Leo Fondirest - Harvard '19
  18. Thoughtful and Thorough

    Jack’s approach is thoughtful and thorough. He was able to communicate effectively with me as a parent and at the same time, motivate my girls to successfully initiate an internship search. Both girls benefited from his expertise by securing great internships this summer and we would not hesitate to recommend his services.

  19. Timely, Organized, Professional and Personable

    Contacting professional scouts, general managers, and coaches of teams at various levels is an integral part of climbing the latter of professional hockey. I could not do this without Jack. He is timely, organized, professional, and personable with his contacts. This helps his clients have the best chance to play at the highest possible level.

    Given Jack’s background with athletics, he is very knowledgeable of how the process works. He has made sure that I continue to capitalize on opportunities to develop and grow my career.

    I sincerely thank him for helping me live out my dreams.

  20. Unwavering Commitment

    “If you’ve ever had the chance to work with Jack, then you know you’re one of the lucky ones! On countless occasions Jack has gone far out of his way to help make my college dreams come true. With Jack’s unwavering commitment to my success during the college process, I was able to gain admission to my dream school, Duke University. Most importantly, Jack is one of the most hard-working, sincere and ethical people I know, which made the usually grueling application process a successful and enjoyable experience for me.

    Kathryn Condon - Duke '17
  21. Incredibly Knowledgeable

    Jack was the most useful resource I had when I was going through the process of looking at colleges and then later applying. He was incredibly knowledgeable and enthusiastic about helping, offering invaluable advice. The biggest difference between Jack and the guidance counselors that I worked with was that while they told me which schools they thought I could get into, Jack was focused on the things I needed to do to get into the college that I wanted. Specifically, he knew which strengths to emphasize and how to improve on weaknesses in my application.

    Learning from Jack, I have been able to successfully juggle a schedule that allows me to do very well academically, while living the social life that I want and getting enough sleep. I can’t thank him enough for how much I have benefitted from his wisdom

    Mike Obrien - UPenn '16
  22. Wealth of Experience

    Jack‘s wealth of experience was critical in helping me get the most out of my University experience. He provided me with the knowledge and resources I needed to successfully navigate the college study abroad process with strategies he developed through his own experiences studying and living abroad. With his mentorship, I was able to achieve the highlight of my University career, and then translate that experience into securing my dream job after graduation. I can certainly say that without Jack’s guidance, I wouldn’t have been nearly as successful.

  23. Unending Positive Attitude

    One of Jack’s greatest attributes is his ability to continuously encourage others with his unending positive attitude. That, and his very detailed preparation and effective strategies helped give my daughter a greater confidence in herself throughout the process, especially during interviews.

    We are thrilled that my daughter received a great offer for a summer internship position and feel that Jack was instrumental in helping her achieve it. It is a great feeling as parents when you know you have made the right choice for your child.

  24. Incredible Resource

    Jack was an incredible resource for me as I weighed my path and options for college. He offered excellent advice and counsel that came from both his experience and his clear expertise. What I appreciated most was Jack’s continued investment in my collegiate experience long after the application process. Jack’s continual care and outreach serves as a clear representation of his character.

  25. Jack was an excellent and enthusiastic waitlist resource. And he delivered!

    Jack was an excellent and enthusiastic resource, who delivered as promised.  He was diligent, very professional and has deep contacts at numerous universities.  My daughter, Sarah, enjoyed working with Jack and with his help, achieved her dream of attending Vanderbilt.  I give Jack high marks and my strongest recommendation.

  26. Recommend Him To Everyone

    Jack played an extremely pivotal role in helping me get into Wesleyan University. I had heard through friends that Jack had a lot of strategies to getting into a school off the waitlist. I reached out to him and within the day received an extensive amount of tremendous advice. After two weeks of hard but calculated work, I was accepted to Wesleyan off the wait list. I even passed along Jack’s methods to two of my friends, and they got into their schools off the waitlist within the week.

    Jack is a fantastic mentor, and I owe my college experience to him. Even to this day I still seek Jack’s advice and guidance on internship and career paths and would recommend him to any and everyone

    Matt Japko - Wesleyan University '17
  27. Beyond Helpful

    Jack Delehey was beyond helpful when I found myself on the waitlist for my dream school, Vanderbilt University. Jack immediately knew exactly who I should contact in the university’s admissions office, and how to express my interest in Vandy in an enthusiastic but appropriate way.

    With Jack’s help, I received an offer on the first day that anyone was accepted from the waitlist. I couldn’t imagine anyone nicer, or easier to work with, than Jack Delehey!

    Lena Stein - Vanderbilt '15
  28. Jack Was Instrumental

    Jack was instrumental in helping me get into Vanderbilt, providing advice and support as I navigated the college waitlist process. Furthermore, once I decided to attend Vanderbilt, he was always willing to answer any questions I had and help in any manner possible as I made the transition to college. I can confidently say that without him, I would not have been able to thrive in the way that I have.
