A-List College Advising: Let Us Help You Through the Admissions Process
The journey to college is undeniably stressful. With over 5,000 colleges and universities in the U.S. alone, each with their own specific admissions requirements, it can be daunting to know how to even begin your college search. If you’re having trouble figuring out how or where to start, A-List college advising can help. Whether you’re a freshman, sophomore, or junior, our college advisors will guide and support you through every step of the college admissions process.
The first step in your search is having a consultation with one of our college advisors. If you are a junior, now is an especially excellent time to have a consultation as you plan for your senior year. During the consultation, the college advisor will gather information about your academic performance, extracurricular pursuits, and college and career aspirations. With this information, you and your college advisor can begin planning your college application process.
Confused about when should you make college visits? When should you be finished with the SAT or ACT? When should you start working on essays? Your college advisor will help you develop an in-depth timeline for each step of the college search and application process from choosing your top 3s (3 ideal schools, 3 likely schools, and 3 safety schools) to conducting mock college interviews. This timeline will ensure that you are prepared for each deadline with as little stress as possible.
Like A-List tutoring, our college advising is fully customizable to your needs and interests. Whether you need help getting started, are overwhelmed somewhere in the middle, or would like help polishing everything before you press send, our college advisors can give your college search and application the benefit of their expertise. Since our advisors have years of experience as high school counselors or admissions officers, we approach the college admission process with a grounded foundation and help families understand what schools are the best match for students. Our services include:
- Brainstorming internships and leadership roles that help students stand out
