College Application Process Made Easy
Resume: Who you are at a glance
Through this process, students prepare to complete their applications. All information that is relevant for the application is organized and prioritzed. Addendums are provided as needed to elaborate those areas needing explanation. In addition to the application preparation, there are several other uses for the one-page summary.
Expressing your "inner voice"
This is an important aspect of any application essays, whether they are for admissions or scholarship consideration. These essays could be some of the most important essays students will ever write. The essay can be the difference for the vast majority of students applying to college. All other things being equal, the quality of the essays could settle the grey zone and make the difference between who does and doesn't get admittted
The admissions officers read thousands of essays - often a hundred in a given day. It's important that the students ensure that their essays make an impression on the reader. In wrtiing them, students need to ensure that their inner voice is heard.
Our services assist the student in brainstorming topics and editing drafts through final copy. Students invariably come to an essay session with no idea what to write or not confident of what they are considering as their content. They leave the session not only having chosen a topic but are confident in how
to approach the first draft. Students must write their own essays with us serving as editors. Their writing will reflect thei inner voice by the final copy. Unlimited editing offered.
Our services prepare students by practicing through mock interviews. Most seniors in high school have not had much, if any, experience interviewing spontaneously. We include tips to make the process more familiar and therefore more comfortable.
Interviews on or off campus with admission officers and/or alumni are less common than in the past. In many cases they are optional; occasionally they are required.
In most cases, these interviews are non-evaluative and serve mainly to offer the applicant further insight and a more personal connection with those representing the college. In some cases, the interviews are evaluative in which case it is very important that the student ractice interviewing in order to be prepared.

We assist students with their college applications, answering questions they may have about completing the forms, and reviewing/editing their drafts. Students, not parents, are to complete the applications. We provide the student with support in this process.
The same service is offered for those students applying for scholarships after having been admitted.
Being accepted, wait-listed, or denied are all possibilities.
The decision process can begin as early as Fall of senior year for those students who applied early action or early decision.
We work closely with students throughout the process to best support their chances of being accepted to their schools of choice. If admission is deferred for those applying early, or if a student is waitlisted, we regroup on strategy and assess next steps to maximize the chances of getting admitted with the next round of evaluations.
