TIMELINE OF SERVICES
While many families first begin to think about getting expert admission advisement during the junior year of high school, I also provide targeted guidance to younger students (as early as middle school). This includes advisement about curriculum choices, extracurricular activities and summer programs, as well as anticipating requirements and other aspects of college planning. Early planning is especially key when applying to the most selective institutions.
Midway through high school I can help students identify potential fields of interest, plan for test prep, and begin to explore colleges. As early as the summer before senior year, I help students develop a distinctive, values-based personal statement, thoughtful supplemental essays, and applications that will highlight their accomplishments.
For parents, I can also provide general information about the financial aid process, to include how need-based aid and merit aid work; how to find affordable college options and/or private scholarships; and how to estimate college costs.
Students and families who use my services can relax about the college admissions process. Parents will have an ally -- someone who can provide objective, unbiased information with expert insight; and students will feel more confident and excited as they begin their journey toward higher education.
SAVE TIME -- REDUCE STRESS -- ENJOY SENIOR YEAR!
