College Admissions Advising

We endeavor to use the best methods to help your student showcase his or her best qualities, successfully compete against other applicants and ultimately attain his or her college goals.

College admission is getting tougher than ever due to a “perfect storm” of factors:

Longer Waits

Students who need to guarantee themselves adequate financial aid options are applying to a dozen or more schools, forcing greater use of waitlist / “wait and see” approaches from admissions offices

More Applications

A higher percentage of students are applying to college

More Students

The peak of the “baby boomlet” is occurring; more high school seniors are graduating now than in the late 1990s and early 2000s

Less Aid

Financial aid budgets are strained due to decreased endowments and alumni giving as a result of the recession
