Why do I need a Private College Admission Counselor?

    “More kids are applying to college than ever before; competition is intense, and the process is complex. In order to give it their best shot, students need a proven framework to organize the college application process.

    There are many options for test preparation and lots of places offering information about paying for college, but there’s relatively little information about how to get through the entire application process step-by-step. How do you write an essay that will stand out from the crowd? How do you get the best letters of recommendation? How do you ace the interview and ensure you meet all the deadlines?” -- College Parents of America

Next to the purchase of a home, college is the most expensive investment a person will make in their lifetime. But many students will choose a college without adequate investigation into what is the best choice for them.  47% of undergraduate students switch colleges in the first two years and 45% of students today require five or more years to earn their degree.

Parents are concerned about their child’s future and feel they have very little “control” over the college process. Students find it difficult to balance their already heavy schedule of homework, extracurricular activities, volunteerism, and friendships with the added workload involved in deciding which college is right for them. These added pressures can create stress on both students and parents.

A Private College Consultant can help navigate the thousands of choices, eliminate misinformation, reduce stress levels and help avoid costly mistakes by finding the right college the first time around.

Beginning the Process...

As you begin to map your way through the maze of entry into college, it is important to understand that great grades and high test scores are only part of admissions. Academic planning, course selection, optimizing extracurricular activities and developing a “student profile” that gives you an edge in college admission takes time to develop and requires planning.

We work one-on-one with our students and families in their homes or nationally via Skype.  We spend hours getting to know the applicant and family, learning more about their personality, interests, qualifications and aspirations to guide our families with personal attention while meeting their individual needs.

It’s never too late or too early; we work with students in middle school through senior year!

    The expert academic and college counselor can assist you and streamline the process by:

    • Knowing the recent trends in the college admissions process and being able to communicate them to you effectively.
    • Spending 20% of our time “on the road,” meeting with admissions officers, touring campuses, speaking with students and exploring the campus and surrounding community.
    • Assisting you to develop your College List.
    • Helping you market yourself so that you are presenting a competitive college application and engaging in an excellent high school academic program.
    • Carefully reviewing all college applications, helping to create a resume, assisting with personal essays and preparing you for college interviews.
    • Planning a testing schedule and preparing for Standardized Test Prep-SAT/ACT, SAT Subject Tests, and identifying AP or IB courses and Dual Enrollment options.
    • Providing you with your own student portal for college exploration, our monthly newsletter, scholarship resources, SAT/ACT testing review, tracking application progress and acceptance.
    • Informing families about the latest information on Financial Aid Issues and interpreting Financial Aid Packaging.
