How It Works

When you enroll in your Strategy Session, an expert college admissions coach will ask you to complete our Comprehensive Admissions Needs Assessment. The assessment provides our team with contextual information about your academic and extracurricular profile, standardized testing, and your current college admissions concerns. Based on your assessment, we’ll personally match you with one of our college admissions counselors and get them up to speed on your needs. Your counselor will meet with you on your schedule in a live online session.

During your Strategy Session, you’ll receive personalized recommendations and actionable advice.

While our counselors deliver a lot of expert advice in only 60 minutes, students’ admissions concerns vary in scope and complexity. Depending on your specific needs, your counselor may provide further recommendations for additional services from our admissions team.

This program takes a minimum of 2-3 weeks to complete, dependent on the student's availability to schedule the Strategy Session.
