A-List Program Success: 1199 Student Spotlight

We are so incredibly proud to highlight the success of our 1199 student, Allyson. Our partnership with 1199SEIU health care union allows us to run a two-part college readiness program for members’ families. We provide 30 hours of SAT test prep in the spring and then offer an 18 hour refresher SAT course in the fall. Allyson wrote to our Director of Programs, Michelle Richards, following the course to let us know how “her college journey ended.” Check out her college acceptances below:

  • Colgate – ACCEPTED
  • Cornell – GUARANTEED TRANSFER FOR SOPHOMORE YEAR

  • Princeton – ACCEPTED
  • SUNY Binghamton – ACCEPTED

We are beyond thrilled that Allyson will be attending Princeton University this fall! Here are a few kind things she had to share about her experience with A-List:

“I’m extremely thankful for A-List and their services for helping me improve my SAT grade and my overall study techniques. With their help, I improved by 160 points and got accepted to one of the top colleges in the country! I am more than pleased with their services and recommend them to everyone who is looking for improvement.”
-Allyson A., Princeton University 2021

We’d also like to give a shout out to her wonderful teachers, Andre Rivie and Adam Barish who attributed her success to her hard work and dedication. In their words, Allyson always went “above and beyond,” so it is no surprise she was accepted to so many competitive schools.

Way to go, Allyson! We couldn’t be more proud of you and we know that you will go on to achieve even more success in college and beyond!
