Don't Know Where

to Apply to College?

A serious problem requiring a

serious solution

For students and parents seeking a strategy for creating a college list that makes sense for the student and the family.   I have created just such a strategy, which will allow students to focus on colleges that match their academic, social, and financial interests.

 

For students with a minimum GPA of 3.0 who are taking regular, honors, AP or IB courses, attending high school in the United States and wanting to attend a college in the United States.

 

Why Does it Matter Where Your Teen Applies to College?

 

  • Because students dissatisfied with their college choices often drop out. As a matter of fact, more than 30 percent of students who start at a four-year college leave without graduating. That is a lot of potential debt with no degree to show for it.

 

  • Because your teen needs to be able to get in.  He or she is likely to spend a lot of time, money, and energy in the process of becoming a competitive applicant, so he or she better be sure they are applying to at least some colleges that want them as much as they want those colleges.

 

Each year, there are approximately 80,000 high school valedictorians and salutatorians and more than a quarter of a million high school seniors applying to college with a perfect 4.0.  You have heard the stories of superior students who were not accepted to any of the colleges to which they applied. 

You do not want your teen to be one of those stories..

 

  • Because you have to be able to afford it and where your teen applies can determine how much need-based financial aid and/or merit scholarship money they are likely to receive.  Cost will also likely dictate whether your teen will have to work part-time during his or her college years.

 

  • Because the college has to offer what your teen wants to study.  Not all colleges offer accounting or American History or neuroscience, etc.  Many students will change their major during college, but if your teen truly has a sincere interest in a particular area of study, it is a huge mistake not making sure the colleges he or she applies to offer that area of study.

 

  • Because you he or she has to like it there.  The location, setting, class size, dorm conditions, academic challenge, social opportunities, etc., all impact a student’s satisfaction with their college experience.  They need to consider these things when choosing the colleges to which they will apply.

 

When you enroll in the “Don’t Know Where to Apply to College" Program, you will receive:

 

  • 15 hours of one-on-one planning and coaching with you and your teen.

  • A step-by-step guide and individualized training on the principals of College Affordability, so that you can have an estimate of what you might be expected to pay for one year of college at the schools at which your teen has expressed interest.

  • A college preference guide, which will help your teen identify and prioritize college preferences - what is important to him or her (e.g., accessibility of professors, the opportunity to study abroad, the college setting, or a college that offers an academic/social balance)

  • A review and assessment of your teen’s current academic record and extracurricular activities including leadership roles.

  • A review of your teen’s academic and career interests.

  • A review of early application deadlines (e.g. early decision, early action, etc.) to determine if these deadlines would be advantageous for your teen.

  • A balanced preliminary college list of at least 20 schools that match your teen’s academic, social, and financial interests.

  • A dedicated meeting for review of each college on the preliminary list with parents and students.

  • A second follow-up meeting to review a revised list of colleges based on student/parent input.  The list will contain at least 10 colleges, and an additional 3 colleges suggested by the parent/student.

 

And More….

 

  • A campus-visit guide and spreadsheet allowing you to make the most of your college visits and allowing for easy college comparisons

  • A guide to understanding the difference between and the pros and cons of universities, master’s colleges, and liberal arts and sciences colleges.
