I hired College Zoom…It was truly the best investment I have ever made and when compared to what other services charge, this was an amazing value. And unlike any other service I found, College Zoom will guarantee successful results if your student meets certain criteria. My daughter was admitted to her first choice UC campus, and was also accepted at a second equally highly rated UC campus. I can’t speak highly enough about the dedication of the people at College Zoom, and the professional and personal service my daughter received throughout the transfer process. I’d give them 10 stars if I could. Contact them – you will not be disappointed!

Yahoo! Education, Majors with Highest Employment Rates, College Zoom’s David Reynaldo comments on a Georgetown University study in this article.
David: “I feel that following your passion is paramount but it wasn’t discussed in the above cited article. Please see: Top Seven Reasons Students Choose the Wrong Major for a more complete perspective. None of the majors that the Yahoo! Education article warns about are necessarily bad. Some majors are perceived by employers to be less relevant to their field, and students in those majors just need to be smart about how they can communicate their major’s worth and relevancy to employers who may not immediately recognize it.”
