"I cannot thank you enough for everything you did for me. You are my ROCK. You have been the 'behind-the-scenes' conductor of my high school career and have helped me through all things personal and academic. There is no way I would have been as successful and happy in high school had it not been for you! You have taught me so many things and you will always be someone I look up to and reach out to. Your strength and kindness are unwavering and you have shown me that no matter what goes on in our crazy lives we can always get through it."
"Daniele and College Bound was the Best decision we have made in the college process. Without her caring and guidance, we would never have navigated through so easily. Daniele is a Godsend!"
"People like Daniele are rare. I can't thank her enough for all her pep talks through my tears. I appreciate her so much! I will always remember her kind words. She has built me into such a positive young woman and I can't thank her enough. I can't wait to make her proud and show her I did it!"
Daniele, I want to thank you so very much for everything you have done for my son over the years. You have always gone above and beyond to make sure he stayed on track and remained focused. Your dedication, kindness, and commitment have helped get my son to where he is today. Words could not describe how thankful I am that you have been apart of our lives over these last four years. I am going to miss you! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
"Over my educational life, I have never really felt like I had a true educational person to count on or trust. I am a different type of person. It takes me a very long time to truly trust and feel comfortable with someone. However, I immediately felt comfortable when I met her, she really is as nice as she seems.
Daniele has become my favorite person ever because of her personality, caringness, and willing to make my worst days turn into some of my better days.
Daniele is like a second mother to me because she has helped me become the person I am today in many ways. She has taught me to have the right mindset in life, figure out a career path and she always stayed in contact with me about my grades and whether or not they were good enough for her. We had endless conversations about where I want to be one day and how to prepare myself for my college education. She was more than a college counselor to me, Daniele has been my life mentor. Without having such a positive figure in my life constantly helping me and pushing me to be a leader don't know where I would be today and I am beyond thankful"
Daniele, Thank you for everything you do for me. I honestly don't know where I would be or what kind of senior year I would be having if it wasn't for you. You have taught me everything from school-related things to everyday things. I have never had a teacher or guidance counselor care about me the way you do. You brighten everyone's day without even trying, including mine. My time with you mean so much to me. Thank you for not only being my college counselor but a friend to me as well. I hope to make you proud. You will never know how much you mean to me!
"Thank you for this wonderful experience. It was only a four-day workshop but I feel like I have known you forever! I am so grateful for this workshop because it has not only allowed me to get so many things done but I feel like I learned so many things about life! What to be grateful for and even how to be organized. You have made my life so much easier and I cannot thank you enough for that!"
"Thank you for everything you have done for me over the past 4 years. Whether it was picking out my high school courses that best suited me, guiding me through my college applications or just listening to me vent when I was having a bad day. You were always there for me. I could not ask for more in a college counselor!"
Daniele has pushed me to do better while granting me new ways of thinking. She taught me to be more open to those around me. She helped me to realize my hidden talents while truly inspiring me to challenge myself in order to prepare for my future, ensuring that it will be bright"
Daniele has been my mentor throughout my high school career. Whenever I needed someone I know that I could always go to her and she would be there for me. I would not have been able to get through my four years without her and I can't thank her enough for all that she has done and continues to do for me.
"I can't begin to thank you enough for helping me so much during high school. If it wasn't for the tremendous amount of support and advice you have given me, I don't know where I would be today. My parents and I want to thank you very much for supporting me throughout this time in my life. Knowing that I will face obstacles throughout my life, I will always keep in mind the lessons you have taught me."
"Thank you for being an amazing role model, friend, and mentor. I could not have gotten through high school and applying to college without you. Thank you for always believing in me and pushing me to be my best."
I value all that Daniele has done for my son over the past 4 years. She exceeded my expectations in so many ways. She added so much value to his academic progress. I can not stress enough how beneficial Daniele Mallari's expertise, professionalism and kindness that she has shown throughout the years of my son's experience of working with her. I am so grateful and appreciative of her willingness to always go the extra mile. Daniele is not only a great college counselor but also someone I now consider a friend.! I commend all her efforts for all that she did for my son and all of her students.
As a mom of a 16-year-old entering her junior in high school my head is already spinning with all the responsibilities and decisions that she and I have to make for her future education. There is so much competition for our young students right now that there is no way I could possibly imagine doing this without the help and expertise of Daniele Mallari at College Bound LLC!!! As we know good grades are necessary but not the only factor...Daniele understands this and incorporates unique and useful assessments to aid the process ... she has sat with my daughter to do a whole personality assessment to see what schools would be a good fit for her socially as well as academically... one aspect of this process that Daniele is guiding us through this difficult and lengthy process of writing the critical essays needed to apply to these very distinguished and competitive schools. I can't tell you what a relief it is to know as a parent I'm doing absolutely everything possible to help my daughter achieve her long-term goals !!! Thank you, Daniele
