College Admission Road Map for Seniors
Wrap up Standardized Testing
If you have not yet finished your standardized testing or are working to increase your score, consider private SAT or ACT tutoring to focus in on exactly what you need to improve your scores with fall test dates.
College List Finalization
As you continue to learn more about your college options and to attend college fairs, visit colleges, and meet with college representatives, we will work with you to help you create a final, balanced college list of colleges where you will apply. Learn how to create a list that meets your academic, personal, and financial needs.
Staying Organized with Applications
Whether you choose Early Application, Early Decision, Rolling, or Regular Application options, we can help you put together an application timeline and support you through the process with expert guidance on everything from applications and essays to the financial aid timeline.
For many students, college essays are the most daunting part of the application process. Understand the part college essays play in college admissions and how you can use this opportunity to demonstrate your core values and strengths through the medium of storytelling. We can help you brainstorm topics, clarify your thoughts, and make suggestions for improvement so that you can write a personal statement that helps colleges get to know you and understand the qualities you have to offer.
Making a Decision
As you evaluate your choices, we can help you clarify your values, consider the pros and cons of each option, and gather the information and resources you require to make an informed decision based on your needs and personal and academic interests. Understand what to do if you are waitlisted, how to take advantage of accepted student events, and how to evaluate your financial aid awards for ‘net cost’ as you determine the best college match for you. (We’ll also celebrate with you as you look back on a job well done!)
Bridge to College
College acceptance is just the beginning of the new journey ahead. We can support you as you understand what’s next, including your enrollment deposit, housing options, campus support services, and college expectations to help you navigate a successful transition to college.
