Phase 1. Lift-Off, Get Started with a Personalized College List and Timeline
“Getting college right is not an exact science, however, it is an exact process.”
Having a college list creates the foundation from which you can be proactive in your college search. Absent of one leaves you to guesswork and leaves your child’s college to chance.
Why don’t more people have a college list? One, because they don’t know the college landscape. Two, it’s easier to rely on electronically-created lists. But those lists can’t possibly consider all the factors that go into college success and desired outcomes. However, we can.
In our closely personalized approach, we can quickly build a college list that matches your child’s qualifications and interests along with considering your interests and needs. Now that’s being proactive and not leaving college to chance.
This is how we do it. We begin with a one hour family Skype call. From there, we construct a personalized college list for you, complete with vital information such as,
- GPA and SAT/ ACT standards for admissions along with a match-analysis of the student
- Total cost of college
- % need-met for financial aid along with the average financial aid award
- % merit-met for scholarships along with the average scholarship award
- Freshmen drop-out rate (national average is 20%)
- 4-year graduation rate (national average is 40%)
- Application dates along with certain admission requirements
- Application acceptance rates
- Enrollment conversion rates
- For Athletes: the division level of the colleges (DI, DII, DIII)
Now you know how each college conducts its business and what drives their decisions. We put you in the driver’s seat. We pull this together and send it to you within 72 hours of our initial call.
As a bonus, we also provide you with a customized college timeline indicating all the key activities and dates of the college process. Now you know what to do and when to do it.
