4-Hour College Essay Consultation

When you purchase our 4-hour block, we devote the first hour and a half to interviewing you and your student so that we can provide meaningful guidance. We spend the second two and a half hours of your package working with the student to develop and refine their personal statement or other admissions essays. Additional time can be purchased hourly, or in additional four-hour increments.

Hourly Consultations

Access college admissions consulting for your teen on an as-needed basis. You set the agenda, so whether you need help deciding which admission plan works best, want to know about the culture at a specific school or two or simply want to understand the college admission process, a consultation is your chance to pick our brains and ask discrete questions.

Please note we will not discuss your college list or your essay until we’ve devoted an hour and a half to getting to know you and your student!

Transfer Students

If you’re thinking of transferring from one college to another, you are not alone. Almost one-third of all students transfer during their college career. It is important to know what schools are looking for in a transfer applicant, and you need to know if your credits will transfer. We can help you find schools that are right for you.
