WINTER COLLEGE ADMISSIONS CONSULTING

Winter is the best time to boost your college applications!  

Our college admissions consultants will help you plan and prioritize your tasks and activities that will strengthen your college applications and boost your chances for admission. 

By working with the best college admissions consultants, you will get a jumpstart in the following areas:

    1. College Application
      1. College List
        How to choose a college that is the best fit for you is a complex process. Our holistic approach to college consulting enables us to get to know you well so we can create a list that matches your strengths, interests, and considerations. Target schools, reach schools, and safety schools are carefully identified to maximize your college applications. Our educational consultants give honest advice and make sure your choice of schools are right for you and aligned with your goals. 
      2. Essay Editing
        No matter what schools you are applying to, you will need to write an admissions essay, personal statement essay, or a Common App essay that sums up your life experiences and convinces admissions officers that you are a good fit for them. Our college application consultants will guide you through the process of essay writing and help you identify which personal anecdotes should be highlighted. 
      3. Test Preparation
        Even when most schools are going test-optional, we believe that taking the SAT and ACT will be advantageous, especially if your GPA and extracurricular activities are not too impressive. Solid and well-planned test prep, with tools like an SAT practice test or ACT practice test, will be a net positive for a college application.
      4. Letters of Recommendation
        Admissions recommendation letters provide insight into the type of student you are in the classroom and your leadership role within the school community. It’s important to understand what kind of information and anecdotes you should provide to your teacher and counselors to help them write the recommendation letters, as admissions counselors lean heavily on these letters to understand who the student is beyond their grades and activities.  Read this article to help you choose the teachers you will be requesting recommendation letters from.
      5. Common App Form Filling
        Filling out the Common App takes time, and the data that you put will be the first impression that admissions officers will have of you. We can help you with the process to make sure that all information is relevant to your college application and that you don’t miss out on anything.
      6. College Visit
        Visiting colleges is an important part of the admissions process, as it is a way for students to demonstrate interest. In-person college visits, if possible, are the best way for a student to feel the campus vibe learn more about a school, and determine if it is indeed a right fit.
    2. High School Activities

      1. Choosing Extracurricular ActivitiesParticipating in extracurricular activities and the leadership role you play matter a lot in your college application. Students often make the mistake of engaging in activities that have no relevance to the major they are interested in and end up wasting time and resources. Strategic planning is necessary to make sure that you choose the activity that matches the values of the school you are applying to. 
      2. High School Internship Advising
        An internship provides students with hands-on experience in their field of interest. It equips students with knowledge and skills to make them stand out from the other applicants. There are various winter internships for high school students, and we can help you choose the most suitable for your college application. 
      3. Class Selection
        A student is responsible for choosing his/her own classes depending on his/her profile and selected major for college applications. Chosen classes will impact a student’s GPA and demonstrating course rigor and top grades is a crucial part of the student’s profile. We can help you carefully choose which classes to take and plan it on your calendar to make sure that you are maximizing your time while still having enough time to cover your extracurricular activities.
