Planning

“More than three-quarters of students are accepted by their first-choice college.”
~ Higher Education Research Institute, UCLA

Answer sheetThat is a very hopeful quote, isn’t it. What it means is that college-bound teens have an excellent chance of getting into a school that is the best fit for them if they plan and prepare. I offer many services that support this effort. Embedded in these services is also my belief that there is a college in this country that is the perfect fit for every student and is affordable, based on the student and families budget.  Planning services are included in packages 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7.

Best Fit College List (detailed explanation)

After discussion with the student and the family, I will develop a list of at least ten colleges or universities that satisfy all of the criteria necessary to make this one of the top college choices for the student. This list is flexible and will be revised several times before a final list is determined by the student. I design an excel spreadsheet which contains the following requirements for each institution:

  • GPA/class rank.
  • SAT/ACT/AP scores.
  • Essay(s).
  • Recommendations.
  • Separate scholarship requirements, if necessary.

In addition, the spreadsheet includes information on:

  • College visits opportunities
  • Amount of free money awarded to students the previous year
  • Majors offered that fit criteria
  • Any other information that would support the student and family i.e. Honors Colleges.
