Start Off Your College Admissions Journey on the Right Foot.

We begin every College Select engagement with a Focus Meeting, a comprehensive assessment of how the student’s academic and extracurricular profile fits with the key factors that colleges weigh when considering admission. We also evaluate the options available to minimize the cost of college.

One goal of the Focus Meeting is to address parent’s and student’s concerns about admissibility and affordability of college as well as about the current state of college admissions.  We suggest ways to move forward that will reduce the stress for everyone.

You’ll receive a Personalized Admissions and Financial Report: a detailed assessment of the student’s academic and extracurricular credentials, suggestions for ways to improve the student’s admissibility, and an analysis of financial factors particular to your family that may impact the price you pay for college.

In addition, you’ll be given access to a comprehensive college planning program until the student graduates from high school or completes the transfer process.

We charge a one-time fee of $300 for the Focus Meeting, which you can apply toward the cost of The Essentials Package or the Comprehensive College Package if you later choose one of those two options.

We need the following at least 2 workdays ahead of our meeting.

  • Background information (We’ll discuss this by phone.)
  • Current High School or College Transcript
  • High School Profile (high school students only)
  • Resume or List of Activities, Accomplishments, and Recognitions
  • Standardized Test Results
  • Family IM and FM EFC from the College Board EFC Calculator
