"The college admission process is more competitive than ever. Whenever family friends ask for advice on how to earn admission to a top university, without hesitation, I suggest that they take time to speak with my mentor and friend, Mr. Clarence Coakley. Many college counselors can give general advice for SAT preparation and college selection, but what truly separates Mr. Coakley is his ability and unwavering commitment to give personal, specialized guidance for each of his students. As his student, I was pushed hard to work harder, and think deeper. I would not be the person that I am today without his guidance, and it is with deep appreciation that I recommend you consider working with Mr. Coakley."
