It all started when a close friend introduced Kory and Deanna to someone who had achieved exceptional results in getting his sons admitted to prestigious schools like Stanford and Yale. Intrigued by the process, they decided to seek more information and were introduced to a mentor who had made it her mission to help minority students secure spots in their dream schools. Impressed by the mentor’s approach and the incredible outcomes she had achieved, Kory and Deanna became fully committed to learning and implementing this proven methodology.
Using this tried and true process, they worked with their own daughter, who had a solid academic foundation, as arising junior. Following the mentor’s guidance, their daughter’s profile began to improve, and she started receiving acceptance letters from Ivy League universities, such as Cornell and UPenn. The list of acceptances continued, including prestigious institutions like Duke, Notre Dame, RPI, Baylor, Carnegie Mellon, University of Texas, SMU, USC, Vanderbilt, and, of course, her dream school, Stanford. The culmination of their efforts resulted in over $397,000 in scholarship offers from five universities, with an additional $75,000 in scholarships from Stanford, where she ultimately pursued her engineering degree.
The success they achieved as a family team, lovingly referred to as PMJ (Papa, Mama, Jori), sparked the birth of PMJ Coaching. Their transformative experience made them keenly aware of the immense value of mentorship and the importance of following a strategic process. Driven by a desire to pay it forward and help other families facing similar challenges, Kory and Deanna established PMJ Coaching, bringing together their team and resources to empower students to realize their dreams.
