College Application Counseling

Each student is unique and we value that. We work closely as a team to ensure that their strengths and attributes are highlighted in their applications while helping them find their writer's voice in their essays. Our individualized process ensures the student is able to demonstrate their unique qualities. Whether they are a high school student or a community college transfer student, our goal is to ensure all aspects of their college applications reflect their unique qualities that will help college admissions see them for more than just an academic profile.

Topics Covered Include:


  • Academic Plan/Schedule Reviews

  • Summer Planning

  • Extracurricular Planning

  • College Admissions Process Overview

  • College Tour Planning

  • Strategic College Application Planning

  • College Research and List Development

  • Resume Development

  • Personal Statement /Essay Development

  • Logistical Support (time management, password management, application tracking, recommendation tracking)

  • Supplemental Application Development

  • Scholarship and Financial Aid Support

  • Review/Compare Acceptance Packages


It is never the job of an independent college admissions advisor to do the work for the student, and there is no guarantee that a student will be admitted to college, but it is my goal to develop a well-balanced list of colleges and universities that are suitable options for each student, to help them find their voice in their written personal statements, and to ensure all steps in the application process are achieved.
