I get you.
Whether we adults do a good job of showing it or not, we really do understand how hard this college thing is.
Finding and applying to colleges can be overwhelming, fraught with expectations, pressure, and confusion — especially for you, the student at the center of it all. It can be the source of sleepless nights, family fights, and even tears. Wherever you are in your college search process, you probably have some or all of the following questions:
- How can I possibly get applications completed with all of my other responsibilities?
- How do I know whether a particular college would be good for me?
- What if I don’t get accepted to any of the schools on my list?
- How do I show who I really am on my application?
- How will I know what to do, and when?
- How can I help my parents understand and support my choices?
- Can my family even afford to send me to the schools I’m interested in?
I believe in the right match.
There’s a unique magic when you find the right colleges, and they find you.
But you’re not going to find the right colleges for you on someone else’s list. Not one of those lists was created with YOU in mind.
I believe you are unique — and your list of colleges should be too.
You deserve your own “Top Colleges” list.
One that’s different from everyone else’s.
With schools where you know you’ll be great — and they know it too.
How I can help:
- I am your personal advisor, working by your side throughout the process to guide you and answer questions that you and your parents may have.
- I will help you and your parents understand the financial requirements associated with attending your target colleges.
- I have tools that will help you create your unique college list based on your own interests, preferences, and your family’s unique financial circumstances.
- I will provide testing recommendations based on your target schools and their requirements.
- I will help you highlight your unique strengths to their best advantage for each of your target schools.
- I will outline the tasks and timelines required for you to complete your applications, and help you stay on track.
Frankly, a lot of MY job involves managing anxiety and expectations (yours and everyone else’s) so that you can do YOUR job — successfully transitioning to a college you’ll love.
