College Selection

This is designed for 11th and 12th graders and their parents. We will take you through the process of identifying a list of “best fit” schools. We have visited several hundred colleges and are familiar with the unique qualities and cultures of each campus. Our fixed fee includes:

- An initial meeting to determine preferences on college location, size, type, special needs, majors, sports, and more

- Analysis of student’s strengths, grades, and test scores

- Schedule for taking the SAT and/or ACT tests, and the SAT Subject Tests

- A second meeting to present and discuss list of recommended schools

- Advice and timetable for college visits and applications

- Follow up meeting with MyCollegeWise consultants, if necessary

 

 


Application Process and Essay Writing

We will help your student complete online applications for as many colleges as he chooses, using The Common Application when appropriate.  We will ensure that the essay is written and recommendation forms/transcripts requested via Naviance, when applicable. We will also keep a checklist and timetable that tells you what has been completed, what needs to be done immediately, and what will need to be done in the future. 

For the essay, we will brainstorm for ideas to create a well-written, attention-grabbing essay. We will edit the rough draft and help revise and refine the final draft. It should be noted that many schools ask for different essays and some ask for more than one essay.
