A little more in-depth:

What I like most about Stratus:

I take deep satisfaction in long-term relationships with clients and am almost as happy as they are when they get into their top schools.

One piece of advice I would share with someone who is applying to college/grad school:

I encourage clients to be consistent in their approach to the application process by breaking it down into manageable pieces and completing each step in the process before going on to the next one.

Highlight or greatest accomplishment while working with Stratus: 

Helping students get into their first-choice schools is always a high point.

3 Random Facts:

– By his own count, Milton has written thousands of memos and hundreds of letters of recommendation for students over the course of his academic career.
– Each spring, he eagerly looks forward to hearing from students he has worked with during the year on the status of their college and graduate school applications…his clients have a 100% success rate!
– His Australian Shepard, Loki, is one of his closest friends.
