A college list should be carefully constructed with schools that fit your preferences, strategically reaching for excellence, but with the comfort of many other great options well within your reach.
You and your advisor will assess three core dimensions to construct your college list: academic fit, financial fit, and social/cultural fit.
Grades and test scores aren’t everything, but they do set a baseline for college admissions. Your advisor will make sure you strive for admittance to colleges that are seemingly beyond your academic reach, working with you to enhance other areas of your application to maximize your acceptance chances. Your list will also consist of colleges where you are likely to thrive - with some that fit your academic resume and others where you are very likely to be admitted.
Every family’s situation is different and every student has unique financial aid opportunities. Your advisor will consider your financial needs and preferences early in the college list process, making sure you know the true cost of attendance and build a college list with your budget in mind.
Colleges is more than a degree pursuit, it’s an experience. Your advisor will get to know you and help you figure out your college preferences, wishes, and dislikes to recommend schools that would fit your personality and bring out the best in you.
During your free 30-minute consultation, we will explain in detail the aspects of the college list development and how it will influence your admissions roadmap.schedule a free consultation
A well-crafted statement can truly set your application apart and get you admitted to colleges that are beyond your academic reach.
With our methodical approach to the personal statement and expert guidance, you will create a unique, interesting, and authentic statement – making you a much more attractive applicant to competitive schools.
The topic you choose is extremely important. Your advisor will help you extract a compelling topic from your many interests and life experiences that creates an authentic platform on which to write your statement. We know what each college looks for in a topic and just as importantly, what they don’t like to see.
After your topic is selected, it’s time to bring your story to life. First, we will help set the foundation for a statement that looks more like a unique piece and less like an English class essay. We will give you insider tips, compelling strategies, do’s and don’ts that will make writing a compelling personal statement clear and achievable.
Our team of advisors will carefully review your essay and provide you with detailed feedback on how to better tell your story, identifying any missing elements and structural improvements. In the end, you will finally be able to add your personal statement to your application with full confidence.schedule a free consultation
It all comes down to the application, and the truth is: you only get one shot.
You will work with your advisor to create an application that combines your grades, scores, extracurriculars, essays, and personal information into a cohesive narrative that shows each school who you are and why you belong.
Your advisor will work with you to devise an ideal application strategy and a well-organized, documented plan, ensuring your tasks are completed and your apps are submitted on time with the highest possible quality.
Your advisor will help you strategize your approach to the very important supplemental essays, providing a review and proofread, and give you detailed feedback on how to improve the finished essay.
Our team of advisors will perform a final comprehensive review, so you can be confident that you are submitting the perfect application.schedule a free consultation
It’s no secret that college is expensive, but with the right guidance and proper planning, you can trust that the financial choices you make are the right ones for you and your family.
We ensure that every step of the college process is crystal clear through your own personal financial lens, from initial list creation to final selection.
The cost, aid, and loan landscape is much different than it used to be. That’s why we equip you with a solid baseline understanding of college finances, from completing the FAFSA, to demystifying various types of aid, to knowing your loan options.
College offer letters are not the most intuitive and can often leave you with more questions than answers. Your advisor will break down the actual cost of attendance and what to expect in terms of aid, payments, and loans. You will be provided with a simple side-by-side comparison showing the net costs of each of your options so you can make a budget-conscious decision.schedule a free consultation
