Peggy Amdur – Founder
I started College Choices upon discovering the stress and disorganization often associated with the collegiate application process. Having previously owned many successful businesses and fast approaching ten years in the industry, I have honed a resume that includes, but is not limited to, a college counseling certificate from UCLA and a graduation certificate from the Summer Institute of College Admissions at Harvard College. My experience in customer service and my ability to personalize a student’s collegiate agenda is what makes College Choices successful. I have made a career out of helping students realize their full potential and removing the stress from the application process. College Choices is all about discovering a student’s “perfect university” and passionately guiding them toward a future in which they can achieve excellence.
My students apply to and attend many universities across the country. The most gratifying part of my job is receiving the “I got in!” phone call.
