A professional document of your academic and extracurricular activities – take it to your interviews and college fairs. Bonus – use resume for getting after-school and summer jobs!
1. College Search & Strategy
A matching and strategy process to put you into the college of your choice! We create a checklist with time table to keep you focused – you do the right thing at the right time. This may be the most important part of the application process.
2. Supplement Questions
A further statement into what defines and distinguishes you from every other person applying to college and what matches your goals to the strengths of the individual college. Very important.
3. Interview Coaching
Mock interviews and an in-depth analysis of your strengths and opportunities for improvement. Your first interview is with one coach who crafts your answers as you go along; the second interview, if you need it, is with a different coach who gives you a very formal interview, no stopping, just 25 minutes of straight questioning.
4. Independent Research Projects – Key to Success
If you are applying to Ivies or on the bubble at any college, your research project puts you into the “let’s take another look at this student”. Many colleges have now included a section in the supplement to elaborate on independent research.
