College Counseling - Reach beyond your expectations
"Luis' advice is insightful, compelling, and should be taken seriously by students striving to attend an elite college. Heed his call for lifelong learning. Internalize his encouragement to make an impact and willingly accept his nudge to innovate. As an educator, I will definitely impart these values to students and parents for years to come."

Stanford University Office of Undergraduate Admission, Seasonal Reader 2012-2015"Few can speak about college admissions with the same insight, energy, and spirit as Luis Martinez. For students and parents alike, Generation YZ offers an invaluable set of lessons for success in college admissions and, perhaps more importantly, in life."

Haverford College, Dean of First-Year Students"I was impressed by the breadth of Generation YZ. It answers questions that students and parents both want to ask and provides a candid overview of the admissions process at highly selective universities. The information provided could change a kid's life, and families would be well advised to read it carefully."
Peddie School, Associate Director of Admission"Generation YZ is a practical guide for the self-driven and ambitious student to make an impact with their application. Mr. Martinez includes keys to investing in one's personal growth and self discovery, recognizing that such growth takes time throughout high school, not just when sitting to complete an application."
Tampa Preparatory School, Associate Director of College Counseling"Generation YZ provides an amazing guide for students who are willing to take action. The chapters cover everything from tips on writing a personal statement, to advice on how to better connect with peers and teachers. It's not just about getting into a prestigious college, it's about making the most of your extracurricular and academic experience."
The Calverton School, Dean of Students and Head Lacrosse Coach"The cultural competencies and international perspectives stressed in Generation YZ were right on target. More and more of our students are striving for a global education, and this book reveals why such an education is so important. Students that read it will gain an advantage during the application process, while learning a lot about themselves at the same time!"
