FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHO IS AN IDEAL STUDENT FOR COACHING?
Students in grades 9-12 are candidates for college application coaching. Starting early is key to a well paced, less stressful application process. I review transcripts, class selection, standardized test plan, etc. and support student throughout the process of application (senior) and course, test schedule, etc. for younger students.
WHY DO I NEED A CONSULTANT IF MY CHILD'S HIGH SCHOOL HAS A GUIDANCE COUNSELOR?
A college consultant is never to replace the counselor, we are a team! By all means, as a former teacher, I recognize the resources available within the school building. However, I also recognize and have lived experience of the limited capacity. Most school counselors and college counselors have a very large case load and are not able to provide personalized coaching, invest time in essay revisions, manage a student's application timeline, or even interview prep. There simply isn't the time.
Admissions consultants are experts in this process and can both simplify and supplement areas where school counselors are at capacity.

HOW DO I KNOW COACHING WORKS?
We believe students results speak loudest. Every year, we have students accepted and completing colleges of their dreams.
DO YOU HELP WITH COLLEGE ESSAYS?
Yes! We help to students to write their essays and provide constructive feedback. We do NOT write essays on their behalf. Our various packages are comprehensive with writing support and access to editing. We recognize the heart work that a college essay takes and how hard it can be!
If you only need writing support and no other college admissions coaching, we can create a modified, writing-only, focused plan.
IS IT WORTH HIRING A COLLEGE ADMISSIONS CONSULTANT?
Given the increasing standards and competitive nature of college admissions, the application and enrollment process can be emotional and overwhelming for most students and families.

CAN YOU GUARANTEE COLLEGE ENTRANCE?
Although we have great success rates, we do not guarantee college entrance. If you do find a consultant who does make that guarantee, they are probably doing so unethically.
