Why It Matters


Developing a working college list as early as possible—ideally by early junior year—is what sets the most competitive applicants apart.  Why?  Because the colleges on your list will determine what you need to achieve during junior and senior year to make your application competitive, from test scores and grades to extracurriculars.  Our College List Package includes:


  • Individualized counseling, plus optional personality and aptitude assessments, to identify your personal preferences and "must-have" criteria in your ideal college (including academic programs, location, size, extracurriculars, cost, ranking, diversity, and more)

  • Professional guidance in researching colleges and developing your college list, including access to our College Planner Pro college admissions software, where you will manage your list, research, and tasks

  • Expert advising to translate your final college list into an action plan for junior year, including test scores, coursework, extracurriculars, letters of recommendation, college communication/visits, and more


How It Works


During this process, you will work directly with Kimberly Hewitt, director of our college counseling practice, to develop your college list and identify college admissions priorities for junior and senior year.  Here's what's included:
