“After my house burned down, Discover Pathwaze offered me application support. They kept me on track with deadlines and provided “guidance as I navigated writing essays. Pathwaze alleviated anxiety I had about the process and their support motivated me to get my applications in. Without them, I would have been much more disorganized and stressed. The team is so experienced and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend them to students who feel overwhelmed by the college applications process or don't know much about it.”

“Discover Pathwaze gave me a really great framework for figuring out what I wanted to do with my future. I came into the process really sure of what I wanted to do and by the end of it had completely switched gears. Being able to talk through my ideas and being able to use the data collected from the aptitude tests to reassure that I was on the right track was really gratifying. Discover Pathwaze was helpful along every step of the way and supported every decision about my future that I wanted to make. By the time it came to applying for schools, I knew how to do any additional research I needed for universities and scholarships. I also had multiple points which I could confidently talk about in my essays.”

They helped me break down the application process into manageable steps that made my goals much more attainable. They took the time to get to know me outside of my academics and helped me create applications that exemplified all of my best qualities.

I highly value my experience with Discover Pathwaze and couldn’t imagine having done the application process any other way."

What Parents Are Saying

Discover Pathwaze was fantastic. We started with Discover Pathwaze during the junior year of our daughter's high school progression. The goals that were set both financially and academically through the interview process were very helpful for all of us. The platform as part of the package was used to discover schools, get information on enrollment sizes, majors offered, and typical scholarships given for grades our daughter had maintained and was extremely helpful. It was nice as parents to have our daughter working directly with the wonderful folks at Discover Pathwaze to narrow down choices and the help and assistance in putting together the applications and essays. The choice was made and fast forward to the present - we moved her in to a university out of state during this last week. We are sad to not have her around the house anymore, but are very excited for the next stage of her journey. Great university fit and unlikely this choice would have happened without Discover Pathwaze. 5 stars for sure. If you are on the fence, don't be. Just do it. Very worth it in our opinion.


Do not look any further. This is the team for you. The team at Pathwaze is beyond amazing. Pathwaze helped my son with the college admission process. They are so professional and organized and their wealth of knowledge with different school requirements/timelines is quite impressive. Their program kept my son on track and he met the early admissions timelines by Thanksgiving break. My son enjoyed working with them and they went out of their way to get to know him personally. Their ability and skills in coaching him throughout the essay requirements were seamless and my son, never once, seemed stressed or overwhelmed. He did get into all the schools that he applied to and I believe a big part of that was due to the guidance and expertise we received through the Pathwaze program. The Pathwaze team are an amazing group of people and I will continue to use their services for my younger son. You will not be disappointed!


We used Discover Pathwaze for both our children and have been incredibly happy with the experience. They were available to my kids and my husband and I at every step of the college application process. Their attention to detail and very relatable approach with my kids allowed us to step back from the day to day process making it a much more enjoyable process. I highly recommend!


Invaluable experience which made the college application process so much easier to navigate. They were spot-on in finding options that fit within our budget. Their approach helped my son have all his applications completed months before many of his peers. We are so grateful!


“Our college age daughter has really benefited from working with you. She has a sense of focus and feels good about her plans and new major now for the upcoming school year. Not only that, but she really likes YOU. So, thank you for connecting with her! You are appreciated. Everyone needs someone like you in their life!


"I'm so glad we chose to work with Discover Pathwaze! They gave us a ton of very helpful information when facing the daunting process of sending our first kid to college. With their tools, knowledge, and thoughtful guidance, we were able to find a school that was a good fit for his credentials, goals, personality, and budget. She made the whole experience fun & was great at putting my introverted kid at ease. Very pleased!"

I would highly recommend Discover pathways. They helped my son stay on track with all of his college applications and everything got done on time. They helped him to refine his essays and in the end he was accepted to multiple prestigious programs. He enjoyed the process and it was much less stressful for the family.

I have no idea how we would have navigated the complexities and opportunities if not for working closely with Discover Pathwaze. Our first child received excellent guidance on potential college "fits" for her as well as a simple checklist to make sure we didn't miss deadlines, etc along the way. We had such a good experience, we partnered again for our twin children this past year. Ultimately, our children were accepted to there top choices and both ended up at an amazing Top 25 school - we we're very pleased and thankful for the efforts of Discover Pathwaze

Mary worked one-on-one with my daughter through the college application process and I am forever grateful. She was genuinely committed to helping Anna discover colleges that align with her values, needs and wants! Mary took so much stress out of the process for my husband and I and Anna had many college choices in the end. Discover Pathwaze is thorough, genuine and keeps kids accountable with admission timelines.
