Comprehensive College Admissions Package

Our most popular package covers all facets of the admission process during your student’s junior and senior years of high school.

  • Putting together a realistic timeline for completing applications and staying on top of deadlines
  • Preparing for college interviews – both with alumni and on campus
  • Selecting teachers and others for recommendations
  • Brainstorming effective essay topics, helping students find their voice, and fine-tuning written work product (please note that we edit the student’s work, but will not write their essays for them!)
  • Creating three-dimensional applications that reflect your child’s unique qualifications
  • Addressing wait-lists or deferrals
  • Making the final college choice once acceptances have been received
