Professional college advice will help you maximize both your financial and time commitment in the search and application process as well as at college!
Starting early in high school and having guidance from an experienced college counselor makes a big difference in ending up at a school that’s perfect for you; it gives you options for schools and scholarships that you didn’t even know where out there. Preparing early in high school, finding the right college or university, and maximizing your financial options means that you’re more likely thrive academically and socially at college, have access to opportunities that will jump-start your career, pay LESS than you would have otherwise by earning more merit aid, and finish your degree on time (also saving you tuition money).
It is easy to get tangled up in rankings, rumors, and misconceptions when looking at colleges. Rather than believing the hype, it’s important to critically analyze the facts and the fit of the college. What fits one student does not necessarily fit the next. For example, the “best” college in the nation according to US News won’t do a student any good if it doesn’t offer the major he or she is interested in or if the teaching style doesn’t match his or her learning style. No one wants a student to flounder or be unhappy at college.
College Counselors can’t get a student into college. You do that through your academic work, involvement in extra-curricular activities, and more. What we can do is help you put yourself into the best possible position to earn acceptances to colleges you hope to attend. We can provide insight and information regarding your options for schools that are good academic, financial, and social fits where you have the best chances of being successful.
