I believe that every student, regardless of ability to pay, should have access to high quality college admission counseling. Your ability to pay should not be a barrier to accessing advice and assistance as you pursue your college dreams whether you are applying to local community colleges or highly selective institutions. I ask that every family contribute based on their ability. Most families contribute a minimum of $100 for services rendered, but some families are unable to pay that and some families are able to pay much more. Education is priceless and having help getting to college should be available to everyone.
For Rising Seniors
Intended for rising seniors this consultation focuses on everything a senior needs for a successful application season. We will meet at mutually agreed upon times either in person or virtually to create a comprehensive work plan for applying to college.
Topics include how to create a Common Application or Coalition account, resume writing, create your brag sheet, understanding essay requirements, assisting with essay brainstorming and drafting essays (both general and supplemental) and other topics, as necessary.
For Rising Sophomores & Juniors
As sophomores or juniors your student will be thinking about different aspects of the college search. Each year brings its own set of unique challenges. Having a professional to assist in planning next best steps can be invaluable in reducing stress and keeping everyone moving forward.
Course planning, college search, college visits, and testing plans are just a few of the topics that are important to discuss this year.
Students need to think critically about how to approach summer plans - internships, jobs, volunteer experiences are important ways to build a resume. Sophomore and junior year are important times to consider these key components to an application package.
