Comprehensive College Admission Counseling

We offer a single-fee, fully comprehensive consulting program through which you receive College Goals’ extensive college admissions support. This program is offered to students who begin to work with us in 10th or 11th grade, or their international equivalents.

The longer your counselor works with your student, the better we are able to help your child to develop and articulate their individual and unique abilities and goals, and thus to create an effective college or university application.

With the full-service option:

  • We guide, encourage, motivate and coach students and parents through the complex and stressful process of choosing and preparing applications for up to 10-12 appropriate colleges or universities.
  • We develop a realistic personalized admission plan, including information about application deadlines, recommendations, essays, and a schedule for preparing for and taking all required tests.
  • We guide the family’s plans for campus visits to institutions appropriate to the student’s academic and personal strengths, goals and dreams.
  • We counsel students through the writing process towards creating compelling application essays.
  • We counsel students about how to obtain excellent recommendations and how to prepare dynamic resumes.
  • We give our students access to the best online tools for researching colleges and exchanging information with us interactively through CollegePlannerPro (CPP) and other online resources.
  • We guide students through developing summer opportunities and extra-curricular activities that will strengthen their application profile.
  • We assist students in demonstrating interest and developing appropriate contacts with colleges.
  • When students receive their admission results, we are available to help guide them and their families to determine the best opportunities and to choose wisely among the offers from institutions.

I always felt able to call or email her with questions and we felt very involved in the whole process.  However, we loved the way that the main focus was definitely our daughter as that gave her enormous confidence being in the driving seat.  She always emerged from her room glowing and ready to get going again, after one of your calls.  What a relief for us!
