Testimonials

We are committed to providing the absolute best in the field of college consutling.

“My family and I are so grateful for all of the help Laura and her team provided throughout the college application process. I had so much fun writing my personal statement and other supplemental essays. It was like a crash course! The process went smoothly because everything was focused on me, my identity and interests. I wrote some of the my powerful essays and throughout the writing journey, I truly discovered what I am looking for in a college experience! Laura used her expertise to suggest many schools I had never even heard of, but after some exploration and research, I knew I would be thrilled to attend any of them. Working with e. Merging truly helped me hone in on my wants/needs and ultimately led me to my dream college. Eden-Student

After our consult, I feel much better about letting go. Thank you. I know you “got him” and I am constantly so amazed by your process.

As I receive my college decisions, I reflect on how I never could have accomplished this without Laura and e.Merging team.  I never would have known about the different colleges and probably would have settled for an in-state college.  I learned about how to apply, but more I learned about who I am and what I wanted out of my college experience.  I had all kinds of preconceived notions that were blown out of the water and felt confidant and excited about the next stage of my life.

Laura has been so helpful to our son who has finished high school as a non traditional student. She has offered options to him for secondary education that we would not have been aware of, and are so grateful for her recommendations. She is thoughtful, engaging, and makes recommendations based on your student, not a one size fits all approach. We highly recommend Laura!

So helpful and easy to talk to, Laura Barr made everything simple and easy. I can not recommend her enough!

– Sandy G.

Laura is the consummate professional and was my first call when my son was looking for a “just right” college. She takes time to know students and families to make sure that individual decisions work well within an “ecosystem” of family-based, kid priority-based and financial consideration-based decisions. She works diligently to ensure that teenagers have both the agency and the ownership to see all of the options and that each path has benefits and challenges. If you are looking for someone that honors complexity, depth, and reality-based decision making, she is the just right fit.

Laura felt like an old friend as soon as we walked in. I was impressed by how quickly she absorbed our family’s priorities and made recommendations accordingly.

I have used Laura Barr for two school placements for both of my kids and couldn’t be happier with Laura’s recommendations. The information we received was timely, informative and extremely accurate and the follow-up was good. I found that Laura’s insight into the Denver school market for public and private schools was worth every penny for us. Our kids are happy and thriving!

Laura is amazing and truly is an expert in the field and has a true gift. It is inspiring that she wakes up for the children, as that is a true passion and most people never find out what they are passionate. Laura takes it further than most and has cultivated this to her purpose while on earth to help others, what a gift and a true beacon for so many of us. 

– Colleen B.

Our session with e.Merging exceeded all of our expectations. We were initially uncertain if meeting with Laura would be worthwhile, but we are so glad we did. Laura’s depth and breadth of knowledge were astounding. She answered all of our questions readily and honestly. We liked and appreciated her direct manner that is fact-based and not bias. We finished our session and walked away feeling more clear on our goals for our daughter’s education. We would absolutely recommend her services and would visit her again if needed. 

– Trish C.

When I think about that period of time in our lives we were confused scared and lost. I will ALWAYS feel so very thankful for you. I honestly don’t know what I would have done without you. You were more than a consultant. You are a friend, mentor, and confidant. We can never thank you enough.
