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.

Our goal at the Focus Meeting is to relieve parents’ and student’s worries. You’ll get answers to key questions.

How can I find colleges which are good fits?
How can we find colleges that will be affordable for us?

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 GuidedPath until the student graduates from high school or completes the transfer process. GuidedPath is the most comprehensive college planning program on the market today and costs $139 if purchased separately.

We charge a one-time fee of $300 for the Focus Meeting, which you can apply toward the cost of the Comprehensive College Package if you later choose that option.

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
