Finding the "right" college is all about fit: academically, socially and financially.
And that looks different for every student!
With over 4000 colleges and universities in the United States alone, where does one begin to find the right college?
At Beyond 18, we meet the student where he or she is. Through student centered, one on one meetings, we get to know the student personally. And the student learns much about themselves through the process!
The comprehensive services include, but may not be limited to:
surveys for the student to target specific qualities and attributes of their "ideal" college
high school curriculum support and recommendation
evaluation of transcripts, test score and activities
careful attention to financial fit, making sure when necessary, the student is considering schools that will maximize scholarship potential.
development of a recommended college list
a timeline for testing
discussion surrounding recommendations
the college essay. I offer a specific approach to brainstorming and writing the essay that honors the student's voice and unique story.
preparation for visits and interviews
scholarship and financial aid guidance
monitoring the application process and deadlines
guidance on admissions offer and review of financial letters
unlimited face to face meetings, Skype, email or telephone for support
