How many students – who had attended this workshop in previous years – have been accepted into Thomas Jefferson High School?

We do get thanking emails from some participants who got TJ admissions – like the ones below!

April 4, 2014 — Thanks so much for the Prepmate classes during Thanksgiving weekend. They helped a lot. Thank God, I got admission to TJ, and I also give my due respect to you, my teacher in helping me prepare for the exam. Again, thank you! Regards, Haris.

February 16, 2014 — My son, No** B** did make the first cut for the Thomas Jefferson exam. He took your course in Fairfax, VA in November 2013.

“April 11, 2012 — I took your 3-day Prepmate TJ Prep a few months ago, and I was just accepted into TJ with a 47 on both tests. I just wanted to thank you for the course you provided, because it really made a HUGE difference for me. It was the only prep I did other than just studying on my own, and the strategies and review you gave truly helped me on the test and in the whole admissions process. Before your course, I was pretty sure that I would never get in, because I had dozens of friends who have been taking weekly TJ prep courses and camps for three years straight and I had done next to nothing. Your course also helped me calm down and de-stress before, during, and after the test. Without it, I probably would have a much, much smaller chance of being one of the ten students from my school who were accepted. Thanks again! — Abb***”

However, PrepMate is a New York-based institution and the only program we offer for TJ Test prep in Virginia is this 3-day workshop. Therefore, we neither follow up with the participants nor take any credit if participants get TJ admission!

In New York, PrepMate has the highest success rate in SHSAT prep. More than 100 PrepMate students have bagged admissions in New York Specialized High Schools just in the last few years!
