The value we bring
Find the right fit
With over 7,200 educational institutions to choose from, it can be tough to find the right fit. We bring experience and first hand knowledge of various institutions, colleges, and universities. We get to know you, your skills, and your passions to help you find your perfect match!
Spend dollars wisely
Education is a major investment of time and money. Costs can range depending on your decisions and could have a lasting impact on your financial future. Having an experienced professional to help you make a sound investment brings significant value.
Navigate the process
We bring experience and knowledge about the similarities and differences of the various college and career application processes. We keep a focus on the student's skills and passions to find the right educational path to help them make their dream a reality.
Get it right the first time
On average, over 23 percent of students complete their first degree at a different institution than where they start. This is often attributed to students making the wrong choice of program of study or institution. Our goal is to help students make the right choice the first time.
Keep the peace
The college and career admissions process can be confusing and stressful. From the seemingly never ending list of tasks to the major commitment of time and money. Having a professional at the table to guide the process and bring some order to the chaos can be helpful.
The first step is to fill out our ‘Step One Survey' that gathers some basic information so we can start our conversation.
The next step is we will reach out to you to schedule an initial 30-60 minute meeting (this is FREE!). Depending on the comfort level of everyone, sometimes these meetings are online and sometimes face-to-face. Since every student's needs are different, we create a custom package of services for each and every student, so prices will vary.
After the FREE initial meeting, we will give a price estimate for the custom package that meets the student's needs. This allows the student and family to know the costs right up front for the outcomes they are looking for before making any commitments.
Getting to work!
Now we get to work! The number and frequency of meetings will vary depending on our outcomes. We usually assign some ‘homework’ for the student as well as ourselves. Sometimes we do quick check-ins over email or the phone and sometimes we meet up virtually or face-to-face.
Keep in mind, we are not making any of the academic or career decisions, we are guiding the students and families through their own decisions.
A common recommendation you will hear from us is to speak to your school counselor (usually about specific topics, programs, or questions). We do not (and cannot) replace this person or their services. We are just another resource for you in addition to those offered by your school.
