College Admission Package
College Admission Package (11th-12th grade)
We will conduct an in depth interview of students and their family, a thorough review and analysis of his or her academic record i.e. (transcripts and test scores), and extracurricular resume i.e. ( co-curricular participation and recognition, community service, experiences and hobbies) resulting in objective strengths and weakness.
Considering this assessment we will establish the student’s College Application Index©. The College Application Index© is a proprietary assessment tool that, based on our training, experience and research, tracks 12 elements of a college application and yields the student’s projected probability of earning admission and merit scholarships at any particular college. Whether he or she has clearly defined goals or not, we will help develop them and identify potential extra-curricular and summer enhancement opportunities.
Next, we will provide guidance and assistance through all dimensions of the college admission process. With the student’s College Application Index©, we will identify an initial list of colleges that match his or her interests and goals and classify each according to the probability of earning admission and merit scholarships i.e (dream, reach, target or likely).
Furthermore, we will help students research individual colleges and understand their main and more subtle differences. Through ongoing conversation we will help narrow the list of colleges to those that are both a good “match” and “fit.” After finalizing the college list we will provide college visitation strategy and application completion guidance. In addition to the common application, which requires two essays, most colleges require their own supplemental essays. We will help your student develop and edit essays that reflect their best self, while keeping them organized and on schedule. At the same time we will provide guidance on how to obtain the best letters of recommendation possible, and preparation for college interviews. We will also explain the advantages and disadvantages of applying Early Decision or Early Action and provide strategic advice.
If necessary we will provide letter of enthusiasm guidance for colleges that may have deferred or wait-listed your student. Finally we will provide support and advice throughout the decision making and transition process.
