► extras for juniors
The extra time that Juniors have before they start applying is crucial for becoming a better applicant. Our advisors work with students throughout junior year to heighten areas of success and correct areas of weakness. All our our junior year advising starts with an assessment of each part of a student’s academic and extracurricular profile so that when it’s time to apply you are the best you possible.
All juniors get the extra benefit of working with the same college admissions advisor that they’ll work with senior year. The extra time to develop that relationship can make the entire process more seamless and is consistently cited as one of the best parts of starting with Cappex Admissions Advising as a junior.

► essays only
If applications are right around the corner and you’re in need of essay guidance, we can help. We work with students late in the process to do anything necessary to help their essays stand out, from helping to brainstorm personal statement topics to making sure the essay fits the rest of the application strategy. We offer a Complete Essay Package for writing a personal statement, supplemental essay or both. We offer a methodical and expert approach that will take you from wherever you are today, to an authentic, polished and ready for submission essay. We’ll help bring your story to life with a solid foundation and engaging detail and also ensure that your essay is structurally and grammatically sound.
Essay packages can be as expansive or as limited as you’d like. If you think this option is for you, schedule a consultation to talk with us about how we can help.
► hourly
If you need help with just one or two specific parts of the admissions process, we offer a pay-as-you-go hourly service. We can provide guidance on college list building, early decision strategies or answer any other questions you have about the college admissions process. Nothing beats our full service packages, which offer a lot more value, but if you have just a few burning questions, we are happy to help.
 Schedule a consultation with us to see if an hourly rate is what you need.
