I cannot say enough good things about Cheryl and BestFit College Advisors. She is truly a professional, is extremely knowledgeable in her field, and is a complete pleasure to work with.  She helped my son Sam every step of his college applications going above and beyond and kept us informed every step of the way.

My experience working with Ms. Coughlin was phenomenal. She was able to make my college process clear, informative, and successful. We didn't know where to begin as my family had little to no knowledge about the college process. Her college coaching allowed me to show my full potential to college admissions committee boards. She went over and above not only helping me with the college process but setting up and touring colleges with me and my family. 



Parent | University of Maine

She is a great communicator and amazing with students who need help overcoming learning challenges and advocating for themselves. I have counted on Cheryl for many years for advice on high school and beyond and highly recommend her to anyone seeking guidance for post-secondary transition planning.



Student | UMass Lowell

Cheryl was the best college coach I could have asked for. The guidance I received is unparalleled. From beginning to end, Cheryl was there for me whether it be helping construct a list of schools to apply to, accompanying me to college visits, preparing me for interviews, helping me perfect my essay. She was available via texts, phone calls, or FaceTime to answer any questions I had. She always showed she cared about my success just as much as I did.

Cheryl provides so much more than just educational support. Her caring and compassion for her students is nothing like I have ever seen in my daughter's 12 years of school. If it had not been for Cheryl's emotional support to my daughter, I know we would not be where we are today! It was Cheryl’s support encouragement, and pride that pushed my daughter to exceed at school and to follow her dream to become an educator as well.

I came to Cheryl Coughlin when entering my junior year at Saint Anselm College in desperate need to get my life together. Within a few sessions, she knew exactly what to do and pointed me in the right direction. She helped me look into and secure an internship and connected me with people in my field as well as explore different areas within my major. I will now be graduating a semester early with a BS degree in Environmental Science. Cheryl is the “college Mom” you’ve always wanted.



Parent | SMCC

Working with Cheryl Coughlin was a wonderful experience. The entire college exploration and application process is overwhelming for parents and students. Cheryl knows her stuff and can help the student really hone in on schools that will be the best fit for them. For parents, she acts as the neutral third party so the students are guided and assisted in an organized, timely manner. Cheryl ensures that the process is done well from beginning to end. We would encourage anybody who is considering a college consultant to call upon Cheryl Coughlin at BestFit College Advisors for help. She is truly the best.

The help that I have received from . Ms. Coughlin pushed and helped me to get into Howard University. Her teaching background, kind methods of motivation, thoughtful suggestions and overall hardworking spirit could not make her any more qualified! If you need a college advisor, pick BestFit!

Cheryl Coughlin of BestFit College Advisors was extremely helpful in guiding my daughter through the college application process this past fall. Her knowledge and enthusiasm made her easy and exciting to work with. She gave guidance and timelines on when things should be done, always checking in and answered all our questions. What we appreciated most is Cheryl believed in my daughters abilities to stretch herself when choosing colleges to apply to. We are happy to say our daughter will be attending Bates College fall of 2022. We are thrilled!


I cannot recommend BestFit College Advisors enough! Thanks to BestFit, my daughter was accepted into EVERY college she applied for throughout the country. BestFit helped find the top colleges with the program my daughter plans to study, helped edit her application essays, found scholarships, met deadlines, put togther financial aid packages and so much more! I had no idea how much goes into the college application process but BestFit made it all stress free. BestFit was one of the best investment decisions I have made for my daughter’s future. I will absolutely seek out BestFit’s services for my other children when the time comes!
